We couldn't be more excited for TV presenters Laura Whitmore and Iain Sterling, who announced on Wednesday (16 December) that they are expecting a baby in early 2021.

Comedian and voice of Love Island, Iain broke the news in a typically hilarious fashion. He posted a photo of his Xbox and Play Station games consoles with a post-it note saying: "I'll miss you xxx"

The star captioned the post: "Sorry to my old babies but there is a new baby coming early 2021. 馃懚馃徎 馃嵓"

He certainly will have less time for games once the new baby arrives.

Presenter and Strictly star Laura went for a more traditional and sweet announcement on her account, posting a picture of a baby grow with the caption: "So I鈥檝e always tried to be protective over the personal side of my life. A lot of things are just for me and my loved ones and we鈥檝e chosen not to share publicly.

"However I want to now share good news as it鈥檚 our news to share - and I鈥檓 gonna be honest it鈥檚 starting to look like my lock down beer belly is out of control. Iain and I are expecting a baby early 2021."

She threw in some humour of her own, talking about trying to keep the news a secret, telling followers:"It鈥檚 been hard to keep such happy news quiet. Especially the times when I鈥檝e had to run out of live radio to get sick in a bin or my penchant for a bowl of mashed potato in the morning. I wasn鈥檛 hungover like everyone thought."

The couple were flooded with messages of congratulations, love and support, and Iain didn't miss an opportunity to make everyone laugh with his response.

Writing in a second post on Thursday(17 December) he said: "Thanks for the kind words yesterday everyone. I鈥檓 absolutely ready to be a Dad."

Oh Iain. This baby is going to be laughing its way into the world.

Congratulations to them both!
