Brian and Danielle have been dating since 2016, and announced their engagement last December.

Sharing the news of their pregnancy, Brian, 40, told OK! Magazine: “We’re 15 weeks along now.”

Danielle, 39, added: “We’re due on 14 May. But they said normally with your first baby it can be early.”


Brian is already a father-of-two, sharing 19-year-old Molly and 17-year-old Lilly with ex-wife Kerry Katona.

The former couple tied the knot in 2002, before divorcing four years later.

Speaking about Brian’s pregnancy news, Kerry wrote in her weekly column for new! magazine: “I’m absolutely over the moon for my ex Brian and his fiancée Danielle after announcing their lovely baby news.

“They’ve really struggled over the years. I absolutely adore Danielle – she’s going to make a wonderful mum. She’s a great stepmother to my children Molly and Lilly.”

“I bought them a baby grow and Brian sent me a picture of his head on it to say thank you,” the mother-of-four revealed.

“When you have a baby with someone you love, it’s always a wonderful thing.”
