“I also have such a mixture of feelings, I’m so so happy but also feel a little sadness my dad and brother are not around to meet my baby!!

“I promise to be a great dad, I will make mistakes but promise I won’t make the same one twice, I will learn on the job like most parents and will do everything in my best interest for you. The most beautiful thing in the world.”

Jake and Sophie, who has a son, Freddie, six, from a previous relationship are taking part in new MTV show, Celebrity Bumps: Famous And Pregnant.

Speaking of his joy after finding out Sophie was expecting again this time around, Jake said: “I hope it will like sport and I can teach it everything my mum and dad taught me.

“I'm excited for everything, apart from the nappies.

“I'm not sure I will ever get used to that.

“And I'm a bit nervous about not knowing what to do. Babies are so little and vulnerable.”
