Harry Redknapp has opened up on becoming a grandfather once again after his son Jamie announced he's expecting his first child with girlfriend Frida Andersson.

The 74 year old, who was recently reportedly forced into isolation after a The Wheel crew member tested positive for Covid-19, and his wife Sandra explained they are "excited" for the arrival of the baby.

Speaking to The Sun Online, he said that Jamie and his ex Louise, who he shares Charles, 16, and Beau, 12, with, are on good terms and even remarked that the Eternal star is "doing great".

While there is much excitement around the news, Sandra confessed her former football manager other half is unlikely to help out and change nappies.

"You didn’t do it before!" she joked.

Harry previously spoke out about Jamie expanding his brood as he told talkRadio's Julia Hartley-Brewer: “Yeah I'm really pleased, it's good news. So looking forward to that and it's exciting times.”

He added: "I enjoy spending time with the grandkids, I love it, I really do. Going to watch them play football and sport… I love being there and turning up and watching the kids and taking them to football on Saturday.”

Harry also discussed how he prefers to let kids enjoy playing sports by not getting too involved. He said: “I stand out the way, I listen to the parents shouting at their kids, that is not good. Just let them enjoy playing.”

While Louise and Jamie may be doing well now, a source recently told OK! that the singer was originally left shocked by her ex's news.

A source told OK!: “Louise was knocked sideways by the news. Jamie didn't tell her directly, she found out through family.”

The source continued: “She's happy for them both and says life goes on but at the same time, she's shocked by how quickly he's moved on and that he'll be a new dad again at nearly 50.

"A new baby is always a joy but she is concerned at how it will impact their family dynamic.”

News broke about Frida's pregnancy back in May, with reports claiming she is due to give birth in November this year.

A source told the same publication at the time: “Jamie and Frida are absolutely delighted. They’ve been virtually inseparable in lockdown, and their relationship has gone from strength to strength.

"The couple started telling their nearest and dearest last week. Jamie’s been telling pals he’s really excited to be a dad again — less excited about the sleepless nights, and ­nappy-changing.”

Frida, 37, is a Swedish mum-of-four and began dating Jamie in August 2020.
