She told HELLO! magazine: ‘I can’t wait for a little boy to call me “mummy”. I don’t know why but I always envisioned being a girl mum because I’m so girly so I was pretty shocked to hear it was a boy, but I couldn’t be happier.
‘It’s made it feel more real to call the baby “him.”‘
Expectant father Lee-Kemp added: ‘It feels surreal. I was happy with either sex but the fact that I’m having a son as my first child… it doesn’t really get any better.
‘I can’t wait for weekends for father-son bonding and teaching him to hopefully be a well-mannered, lovely little boy.’

‘I also wanted to acknowledge the following, since announcing that we are expecting our baby. My heart goes out to anyone that this was a trigger for.
‘In the past few years my world has been opened up to the realm of fertility & all the struggles that can come with it.
‘Be it, close friends or friends of friends etc, I have seen the struggles to conceive, the sad loss of babies & a whole world really that consumes your every day as a woman.
‘I am eternally grateful as I have already said for this blessing, & I want to make it clear we do not take it for granted & also send huge love to any ladies, & men out there that have not had an easy ride, as I know there are so so many of you.’
