It seems broodiness may be catching amongst close friends, as in the last two months not one, but two former members of JLS have announced that they have babies on the way.
Oritsé Williams, 27, is the latest band member to reveal that he will soon become a father. He made the announcement by tweeting the above photo of his girlfriend Aimee Jade (AJ) Azari showing off her baby bump.
AJ was quick to retweet the picture adding: "@oritse and our lil legend xxx love u"
The couple, who won ITV's Stepping Out in 2013, have managed to keep the news under wraps for most of AJ's pregnancy.
While it's not known when her due date is, judging by the photo she's definitely a little further along than 12 weeks.
Oritsé and AJ's baby already has one playmate lined up, as just seven weeks before Oritsé's revelation, his former band mate JB Gill took to Twitter to announce that his wife Chloe is pregnant with their first baby.
Chloe was quick to send her congratulations to Oritsé on Twitter:
Congratulations to @Oritse & @AJAzari !! It's defiantly an exciting year!! #JLSBabies ☺x
