Claire and Gerry are already parents to Patrick, and became engaged during her pregnancy in March 2013.

Claire previously said she had hoped this time they would have a girl.

“I don’t care in the least if it is a boy or girl – the only thing I’ll say is that when I’m buying clothes for boys I’ll gravitate towards the pink dresses.”

She also said that while her partner would love a big family, and she comes from a big family herself, the pair are not planning their own family with great precision.

“Gerry would have 10 children if he could,” she laughed.

“I never plan anything and I don’t prepare with military precision. I grew up in a family of six children but I’m not saying I’m going to have six.”
