The couple started dating last summer, with the Swedish model confirming her pregnancy back in May. Whilst they didn't officially announce it, Frida later took to the comments section on her Instagram to respond to congratulatory messages.

The blonde beauty had posted a picture of one of her sons with her former husband and while some commented on it, others simply sent in their well-wishes. "Lovely news on your new baby. Congratulations to both," wrote one, whilst a second added: "Congratulations on your new baby."
