In May of this year, Maeva and James subtly hinted that they were expecting their first child together. In a photoshoot with Hello to announce their engagement, Maeve wrote in her caption, “P.S: We've also been hiding another secret…”, along with a baby bump emoji.

Two weeks later, the couple officially shared the news of their pregnancy, with a cute snap of James cradling Maeva’s growing bump.

“New adventures!”, Maeva exclaimed excitedly in her caption at the time. “I’m so grateful to my amazing future daddy for giving this baby so much love already”.

In an interview with OK!, James revealed that the pair’s baby news was a surprise, but something that they were also delighted about. “It definitely was not planned. We conceived around Valentine’s Day,” he detailed. “When she told me I think I went into two weeks of proper shock. Then I started analysing what I felt and it was excitement.”

Congratulations to the new parents!
