The 32 year old shared a throwback picture to the moment the couple discovered they were expecting another child as he held up a positive pregnancy test.

He wrote: “So it’s baby boy/girls due date.. October 3rd we took this as we had just found out life was guna change & get even more crazy (as you can see the panic was real)!

"I’ve watched only what I can describe as superwoman shine through this pregnancy (as she did the first) but I’m so proud & so in love with you @sarahlourichards.

Sarah also documented the day before her due date as she shared pictures of herself, Aston and Grayson wearing matching Arsenal shirts to Instagram.

With their backs to the cameras, Sarah wrote: “We thought baby might want to be the 23rd but that’s been and gone. wonder what date will be on our newest members shirt p.s this top is not maternity #birthdays #allthethrees #whatwillyoube #wewilljustwaitandsee.” [sic]


The couple announced their news exclusively to OK! magazine last year with a dance routine to Pharrell Williams' Happy, choreographed by Sarah herself.

Sarah told us: “It was a very pleasant surprise! I felt different for a week, and Aston was away filming. He came back at the end of the week and we took the test and it was a very clear, definite yes.”

Aston added: “We did two, just to be sure!”

Sarah, 35, also revealed the couple's joy at giving their son a brother or sister as she said: "For Grayson to have a sibling is really lovely, especially so close in age."

The couple told us they were over the moon to be adding to their brood, but admit it took a little while for the unexpected news to sink in. Sarah said: "I was quite shocked and it took me a minute to get my head around it because I just wasn’t expecting it.

Aston added: "Sarah was quite emotional. I was cool! I was just like, cool, alright, two!"

Aston and Sarah met back in 2011 at the Capital Summer time Ball. A year later, Sarah landed a job as a dancer on JLS's tour and they became official that September.
