The Gerrards clearly have a penchant for baby names beginning with L as they are also parents of three daughters: Lilly-Ella, 13, Lexie, 10, and Lourdes, five.

Alex announced she was pregnant on 28 October 2016 by sharing a black and white photo of her three daughters all clutching a photo of the baby scan.

“We are all very excited for our new baby to arrive next year,” she tweeted. “Number four.”
