James Corden and wife Julia reveal the gender of their third child

James Corden and wife Julia have confirmed the gender of their third child.

The Late Late Show host, 39, appeared on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards with other half Julia, 38, who showed off her growing bump in a stunning fitted black gown.

Speaking to Extra host Mario Lopez during the appearance on Sunday, James revealed not only the sex of their little one, but also when they’ll be arriving.

‘She’ll be arriving Christmas – we’re very excited,’ he exclaimed. ‘It will be great, lovely. We’re having a little girl, it’s going to be terrific.’

James and Julia are already parents to son Max, six, whom they welcomed in March 2011, and two-year-old daughter Carey, who was born in October 2014.

The couple, who tied the knot in September 2012, announced that they were expecting again back in July, with a spokesperson making the happy revelation to PEOPLE magazine.

James and Julia are notoriously private about their personal lives, and the former Gavin and Stacey star doesn’t often speak about fatherhood with the press.

However, when he was announced as the host of the late night American TV show in 2015, James admitted that he found becoming a dad much more nerve-racking than being live on air.

‘What’s more scary? Being a father. No question,’ he told reporters at a Vanity Fair Young Hollywood Party at the time. ‘It’s just a TV show. It all pales in significance.’

Of his busy schedule, and juggling work and his growing family, he added: ‘Me and my wife do rock, paper, scissors for who gets up in the night. That happens all the time.’

‘My son calls Saturday, ‘Dad-urday’ and Sunday is Funday. We will get to have that and that’s the most important thing.’
