‘We weren’t expecting it’ Jordan Banjo and Naomi Courts open up about expecting second child

Jordan Banjo and Naomi Courts announced they’re expecting their second child a few weeks ago, just months after becoming parents for the first time.

The pair welcomed their first child last May, when they welcomed their son Cassius.

Now, just seven months later, they’ve announced they’ll be adding to their brood very soon as Naomi, 27, is pregnant with their second child.

The couple opened up about the exciting news with OK! Magazine, and confessed that they weren’t expecting to have another baby so soon.

Naomi said: ‘We always knew we wanted another baby fairly quickly as we want our children to be close in age, but we weren’t expecting it to happen quite as quickly as it did!’

The pregnant mum suffered with bad morning sickness during her first pregnancy, and while it hasn’t put her off having a second baby, it has made them change their plans from four babies to two.

She added: ‘We always said we’d have four babies, but after going through the sickness again I think we’ll leave it at two!’

The pair met in 2013 but only started dating two years later. Speaking about their plans to get married, the 26-year-old dad revealed he was hoping to propose to Naomi before they added to their brood, but he’ll have to wait a bit longer now.

He said: ‘I was hoping to propose before Naomi fell pregnant again but things haven’t worked out that way. It’s next on our agenda!’

After his stint on I’m a Celebrity in 2016, the dancer had already said wedding bells would be on the cards for him and Naomi.

He said at the time: ‘It’s the sort of thing where beforehand I was like: “Yeah, yeah one day I will.”

‘But it’s dawned on me now that I will actually marry this girl.’

They announced the birth of their first child with a sweet Instagram post. Jordan wrote at the time: ‘Myself and @naomiella21 haven’t shared this straight away because we wanted to take some time to appreciate and enjoy the beautiful moment that we had as a family…but on the 07.05.2018 at 12:29am our beautiful son was born! Words cannot describe the feeling of seeing your future come into this world.

‘I’m so proud of mum & baby, both are doing absolutely amazing and @naomiella21 you are a super woman. If I didn’t know it before, I do now, I am the luckiest man there is. Welcome to the world Cassius Ashley Banjo👣’.
