Mark Owen Reveals Baby Hat Trick! Third Take That Star To Make Baby News!

Take That PA

Mark Owen is to become a dad for the third time. The Take That star revealed wife Emma Ferguson, 35, is expecting their third baby - just days after Robbie Williams made his 'nappy' announcement, and a few weeks after Gary Barlow broke the news he too was going to be a dad again!

Mark could reportedly no longer keep the news private as Emma's bump was growing too big to hide!

A friend of Mark's said the 40-year-old star was 'over the moon'. The unnamed source told the Sun: "He was keeping it a secret for as long as possible so he could enjoy keeping the special news in the family. But now it's come to a point where it's time to share it with everyone. The lads have had a right old giggle about the three of them having baby news about the same time.

"Gary was joking there must have been nothing on the telly a few months back for them all to get down to business."

Fellow band-mate Robbie, 38, and wife Ayda, 32, announced their happy news on Robbie's website on Friday, whilst Gary Barlow, 41, and his wife Dawn, 42, revealed they were expecting baby number four last month.

Mark and Emma, 35, are already parents to Elwood Jack, six, and daughter Willow Rose, four. Their happy news comes just a couple of years after revelations about Mark's drink problem and pre-martial affairs rocked the couple's relationship.

Just Jason and Howard to go then...

What fab news!
