Jake Quickenden is going to become a dad for the first time.
His beauty therapist girlfriend Sophie Church is pregnant with their first baby together.
Already she has a son Freddie, six, from a former romance and now the couple are looking to expand their little family.
The Dancing On Ice star, 32, said he was delighted with the news because fatherhood was something he’s “completely ready for”.
I’m A Celeb’s Jake told Hello! magazine : “I’m so excited to be a dad. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and I feel completely ready for it.”
His girlfriend gushed the reality star will make a great dad because he already does a fantastic job of raising her son Freddie.
Jake first met Freddie when he was four and now he’s ready to become a dad himself.
The couple also opened up about their secret devastation over a miscarriage last year.
Sophie admitted her heartache over the miscarriage hit her “hard” when she had been pregnant for six weeks.
She said: “Even though I was only six weeks pregnant it really hit me hard. With this pregnancy we still carry that worry, so it was nice to have the scan and know that everything is okay.
“We had been trying for a year and a half and I was doing ovulation tests and everything and Jake said: ‘Stop putting pressure on us, it will happen when it’s meant to happen.’ But when you really want something it’s so hard to not feel disappointed every month.”
Jake and Sophie went Instagram official in October 2018.
Their relationship has rocketed to new heights and now they have a baby on the way almost two years later.
Jake has made his mark on the entertainment and reality worlds.
