She wrote: “Jesse and I are very happy to announce we are having another baby. I feel extremely blessed and happy that Rex will be a big brother, and we get to welcome another Wood into the world.”

The couple already have a two-year-old son, Rex.

Earier this month, Keith Lemon dropped a massive hint that Fearne was expecting another child during an acceptance speech at the National Television Awards, when he said the reason she and Holly Willoughby werent at the ceremony was because “allegedly one of them is pregnant... that's why they're not here tonight.”

However, he later insisted this was a joke on Twitter.

As well as her baby joy, Fearne also announced that she be stepping down as a presenter on BBC Radio 1, after a decade with the station.

She continued: “After much time and careful thought I have decided to leave Radio 1 after ten amazing years. I have had the most incredible decade broadcasting on Radio 1, meeting wonderful people, helping break artists and watching live music from the world’s best.

"However it is now time for a new chapter. I would like to thank Radio 1 for being such a great home and most of all to the listeners who have been on this journey with me.

"I will leave with the best memories and many great friends. Here’s to family and new adventures."

It’s already been announced that Clara Amfo, who currently hosts the Official Charts Show, will take over Fearne’s daily slot, which airs from 10am until 1pm, and features the famous ‘Live Lounge’ segment.
