Steps star Lee Latchford-Evans and wife Kerry-Lucy have revealed that they are expecting a baby boy together, so many congrats are in order.

The singer confirmed the happy news in a new interview with OK!, admitting that they are "scared as much as [they're] excited".

"We've wanted a baby for so long," he added.

Candidly opening up about suffering a miscarriage in 2018, Kerry-Lucy explained that she had to take a test a few times before convincing Lee.

"I did a test and it had a really faint line," she said. "Lee walked in and I said, 'I think I'm pregnant.' Lee's eyesight isn't the best and he said, 'There's definitely no pink line.' I woke up at 4am the next day and did another and it was definitely positive."

"It's a mix of joy but also worry," Lee added. "You think, 'Is it going to happen again?' For us, our safety net was the 20-week scan."

Kerry-Lucy added: "People say once you're past the 12-week mark the risk of miscarriage lowers, so I'm trying to enjoy it."

Lee also recalled the moment he told his Steps bandmates the happy news over a Zoom call, revealing: "We had a meeting about our year ahead and we were going through what we'd be doing in August and September and so on, and I said, 'I might be quite busy in August,' and I held up our first scan picture to the camera and said, 'I want you to meet someone.'

"I filmed their reaction. They were fantastic. They cried, they cheered! H [Ian Watkins] said, 'Willies are best!'"
