Kevin Kilbane and his Dancing On Ice partner Brianne Delcourt have revealed they are expecting their first child together.

The couple met when they appeared on the popular ITV skating contest back in January. After a whirlwind romance they announced they were engaged shortly after their stint on the series.

They have also confirmed news they are now married, with Delcourt five months along in her pregnancy.

The couple shared the news in a recent interview with OK! magazine.

The former Republic of Ireland and Sunderland midfielder told the publication: “I actually couldn’t be happier to be married and to have a baby on the way.

“Everything may seem fast in other people’s eyes and we can’t believe it ourselves but we do everything together so this was naturally the next step.”

She added: “We keep saying to each other ‘imagine if we knew this last year. I wouldn’t have believed it.”

The couple’s new arrival will have three half-sisters. Delcourt has a three-year-old daughter from a previous relationship while Kilbane has two daughters with ex-wife Laura.

Talking of their relationship earlier this year, Kilbane told OK! magazine: “There was an attraction with Brianne the first time I met. But it was way more than that. Everything clicked. I asked her on a date after a week of knowing her, but she said no.”

She said in the same interview: “There is no comparison of Kevin to the guys I used to date. He’s perfect and my best friend.”

Delcourt announced she is quitting Dancing On Ice back in July after ten years as a professional skater on the show.
