Captioned “We have some news”, it showed the two boys sat on the sofa before Merrygold wandered in clutching a positive pregnancy test, which he held up to the camera.

As the video ended, a message appeared on the screen, saying: “In case you missed it, we’re having a baby.”

Merrygold’s bandmate JB Jill posted: “The best news EVER, Congratulations to you all!”
