Earlier this year Kian took to Instagram to reveal that the pair were expecting their third child.

‘Look at what wifey is reading again!’ he teased beside the cover of Your Pregnancy Bible. ‘Here we go again #jodialbert baby no.3 is on the way!!!’

But the couple may not stop at three, with Jodi previously confessing she and Kian would like to have ‘three or four’ children.

The Daily Mail reported that 34-year-old Jodi said: ‘… Kian is from a big family of seven, so ideally we’d like three or four.

‘The Irish have big families. We’d love a girl, but so long as they were happy and healthy, that’s all that really matters.’

When asked how she felt when she learned she was expecting a second son, she added: ‘We’d like a girl at some point but we just wanted a healthy, happy baby.

‘I never dreamt before Koa of being a mum to little boys, but now I’m obsessed with boys – they’re such cool little dudes.’
