"Our family is now complete," the couple said in a statement.

Matthew first confirmed Renee's pregnancy in April this year, with the pair having experienced a number of past miscarriages.

Speaking about that struggle previously, Matthew said: "It's not fun stuff.

"But it has really opened us up to having the conversation and talking about things that are taboo or a little difficult to express. So I think it has really bonded us together a lot more."

Speaking in 2019 about why he doesn't think a Glee revival would work, he said: "I think the show had such a moment at the right time and to recreate it now it just wouldn’t have the same impact."
