“I’ve been driving myself mad thinking that she’s bored senseless of me and can’t stand to be awake for longer than 10 minutes of my company,” he said. “So you can imagine my delight to find out that she still loves me and my company very much she’s just been growing a baby.”
Swash continued: “I can’t begin to describe how happy we are to be able to share this wonderful news. We’ve been so blessed with three incredible children that we’ve had the privilege of raising and we are forever grateful to have the chance to become parents to another wonderful child.
“It’s all very overwhelming and emotional and we couldn’t be happier right now.”
Speaking on Loose Women after announcing the news, Solomon said: “I’m so elated and excited. We really can’t believe we’ve been privileged to be able to have another child.
“We felt it was important to keep it to ourselves until we felt really safe, that was first and foremost.”
And Swash added: “This child is going to tie up the family. My kid and your kids are going to feel like they’re part of this big family. We’re going to have such a lovely family.”
