Jake Quickenden is set to welcome his second child with wife Sophie Church.

The 35-year-old reality star and his other half are set to become a family of five, with the new addition set to join their three-year-old son Leo and his spouse's son Freddie from a previous relationship.

Sharing a touching video of the moment they shared the news with their brood, Jake captioned the Instagram clip: "WE HAVE NEWS.... soon to be five.

"We can finally let you know after a long time trying we are gonna bring another bundle of joy into the world. We are super excited. Can't wait to live off 2 hours sleep again. Have a lovely Sunday."

Having another child had been in their sights for quite a while.

Jake previously told the Daily Star: "We are trying for another one. It is the easiest decision ever. We definitely want one more.

"Our family already feels complete, but we'd love one more. We would love a little girl. That would be the icing on the cake. But as long as the baby was healthy, that's all that matters. Whatever we had, we'd be happy."

The couple started dating in 2018 and tied the knot in Ibiza in 2022.

The former 'X Factor' star later gushed that the service was the "best day" of his life.

He said: "Best day of my life yesterday! Having a day today enjoying this one and spending time with my mates!"

The day before the ceremony, Jake celebrated his 34th birthday and explained to his followers that he felt the "most blessed" he had ever been as he prepared to say 'I do.'

He said: "34 years young today and the most blessed I have ever been…. Get to marry my best friend tomorrow, with family and friends surrounding us!! Missing a couple of special people but they will be watching down!! (sic)"
