It was an exciting time back in April as former The Saturday’s singer Rochelle Humes and husband Marvin Humes announced that they were expecting a third child.
The star shared the news on her Instagram on Easter Sunday, writing the message on a board with white lettering.
It read: "We're eggspecting baby Humes October 2020," as the mum-of-two then added in the caption: "There's a baby bunny in my oven…"
Rochelle and Marvin announced the arrival of their son on This Morning on 11 October saying he arrived on the morning of 9 October. He will have Alaia-Mai, six, and Valentina, three, as siblings.
As the couple welcome their third child together we take a look at Rochelle’s pregnancy journey…
Rochelle opens up on her pregnancy
After her pregnancy had been revealed, This Morning presenter Rochelle, 31, revealed she’d been tricking fans into thinking she had been drinking during the couples’ Stay Home With The Humes house party sessions during lockdown, when she was actually drinking lemonade.
The 31 year old joked that people had been thinking she was “drunk” during the music sessions, but she was just “happy” and enjoying herself.
Taking to the live video, Rochelle then thanked fans for their kind messages after her big announcement.
“Thank you for all of your lovely messages, I can see your messages coming in,” Rochelle said during the live stream.

The star later joined Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford for a video chat and discussed the exciting news.
She told the popular hosts that she’d been feeling sick during the evening during her pregnancy, instead of in the morning.
And opening up on her and Marvin sharing their exciting baby news during the pandemic, Rochelle said: "So our hands, if they weren't full already, are about to be even fuller.
"But we are thrilled, it's nice news in this weird time at the minute.
"Weird to share it with our friends and family via FaceTime, but so lovely, so happy."
Rochelle and Marvin announced they are expecting a baby boy with a sweet video.
The star took a blood test when the baby was at 13 weeks to find out the gender.
The clip sees the pair's two daughters, Alaia and Valentina dressed in matching yellow outfits as they played a game over the Easter weekend, hunting for chocolate eggs.
Eventually the little girls come across a poem the Easter Bunny had written for them, which Alaia reads out loud as she says: "Hippity hippity hop, I have great news that I have to drop.
"You and Valentina are such good sisters, but now it's time to add someone new to the mixture. Now that's all from me, the Easter Bunny.
"The big news is, you have a baby brother inside of Mummy's tummy!”
Rochelle also spoke to Eamonn and Ruth about the sweet reactions her daughters had to finding out that they are going to welcome a baby sibling.
The Saturdays singer revealed her oldest daughter's adorable reaction was to cry “happy tears”, but little Valentina was slightly confused.
Taking to Instagram, Rochelle participated in a question and answer session with her 1.8 million followers and discussed baby names.
The star, who revealed she showed no symptoms before taking the test but could sense she had fallen pregnant, said she had “literally no idea” when it came to name picking.
She continued to say she needed suggestions but JLS star Marvin has since teased baby names he’s leaning towards.

Speaking to Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden on Heart Radio, the singer, 35, said: "Yeah I am so delighted that we're having a little boy. It's about time really, I'll finally have a little man to keep me sane and keep me away from all the girly stuff."
Speaking about names, he added: “We have some ideas up our sleeves, but I don't think we're ready to share just yet. I think we'll keep it as a surprise.
"I think Marvin Junior would be quite cute though. Little Marv, or MJ. But who knows, Roch probably won't agree to that!"
Rochelle shows off her bump
The mum-of-two showed off her bump whilst posing in a beautiful cream knitted jumper and matching side-split skirt with white flatform trainers with a wicker sole.
In the first image, Rochelle is leaning back with her arm behind her to show off her blossoming bump while she holds her phone with her other hand and smiles widely.
The second picture shows Rochelle in the same pose but standing at a slightly different angle to debut the bump on her Instagram page.
Rochelle gushed in the cation: “Hey lil man,” followed by a waving emoji before adding: “can see you today…” followed by a blue heart emoji.
She also revealed a snap of her tummy whilst posing in a beige knitted two piece.
Rochelle penned: “Okay so I’ve never been organised enough before in my other 2 pregnancies to document my bump growth but, I definitely don’t have an excuse this time…so here’s where I’ve started #18weekspregnant
“You might still be small but you are so very loved already little man," she wrote, tagging her husband Marvin.
The star has since shared a number of images cradling her bump in stylish outfits. In one, Rochelle poses in her dressing room in a midi length checked dress from the Zara 'Mum' range.
Rochelle revealed that one of her pregnancy cravings had her "freaked out" because it's something she normally hates.
She explained that she never eats eggs because she can't "bare" the thought of them. However, one morning she said she woke up wanting a poached egg after never having one before.

The This Morning fashion presenter is convinced her son loves them, saying: "Okay I'm a bit freaked out as I HATE eggs.. ask anyone that know me.. can't bare every kind of egg.. smell etc.
She continued: "Yesterday I woke up and wanted a poached egg (I've never had one) and then the same thing happened today.
"This baby boy must like eggs? So confused…" [sic]
Rochelle, who revealed she’s been “living” in sports bras and tracksuits while pregnant, spoke out about her morning sickness and how her daughters had soothed her.
She wrote at the time: ”Today has by far been one of the hardest days to get through…this ‘morning’ (or all day) sickness really isn’t budging. I shut myself in the front room today and cried."
She continued alongside the heartwarming snap of her hugging Valentina and Alaia: "These little ladies must have sensed it as they have been as good as gold for me all day. Early night tonight I think…"
Rochelle shares ultrasound photo
Rochelle shared an adorable photo of her and husband Marvin's unborn son, as captured on an ultrasound.
Posting to her Instagram followers, she shared the exciting snapshot, writing: "Today we saw some little feet…"
Her fans were quick to gush over the image, with one person writing: "Congratulations on the pregnancy news I'm so happy for u n the family im so proud of u." [sic]
A second added: "Oh this is just the cutest thing I have seen today."
While a third commented: "That baby is so lucky to be coming into such a lovely family unit like yours. Your girls are adorable and I love watching all your clips."
Nursery design planning
Rochelle has also been eyeing up some ideas for a nursery and headed out on a shopping trip to get some design inspiration.

And one very expensive cot caught Rochelle's eye. Posting a snap of a chic faux leather quilted crib on her Instagram Stories, Rochelle simply wrote on the snap: "Love it…"
The This Morning presenter also tagged in the designers of the crib, Swedish brand Sleepy Head and Aristot Official, who describe the "ultra-posh bassinet" as an heirloom design that grows with your child and can be transformed from a crib into another piece of furniture.
The particular design Rochelle favoured is available at Harrods for £1,660, but prices range anywhere up to £3,000 for a custom design. We can't wait to see what the nursery will look like!
Rochelle and Marvin announce the birth of their son
This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield shared the happy news on Monday 11 October that Rochelle had given birth to a baby boy named Blake Hampton Humes.
They revealed that Rochelle and the baby were doing well and then shared a number of adorable pictures of the mum and new baby on screen.
In one picture Rochelle is in a hospital bed as she cradles her son in her arms and smiles, in another the sweet newborn stares up to the camera.
Taking to Instagram, Rochelle wrote of her son: "Blake Hampton Humes. On Friday morning at 8.44am our boy arrived to flip the switch on 2020.
"I didn’t think I’d ever fall in love with another man but this guy has stolen my whole heart and we’ve been in a love bubble ever since…"
