Simon - who also has a 24-year-old daughter called Alanah from a previous relationship - later added: "Thank you all for the support, all three of us thank you [heart emojis] (sic)"

Antony, 39 - who stars alongside Duncan James, Lee Ryan and Simon - also joked that he'll be the best "uncle" out of the band members.

He wrote on Instagram: "Congratulations to you both ..can’t wait to meet your new arrival...I think I’ll be the better uncle out of the lads x [heart emojis] (sic)"
