Jake also went on to speak about his own father, who sadly passed away in 2008, “My dad was the best dad in the world and I also have an incredible step dad, I wish my dad was about to see how I will be a role model to this baby.”

The parental role isn’t entirely new to Jake, as he is a step-date to girlfriend Sophie’s son Freddie, who jake says is also very excited about the baby news.

Speaking with Hello! Jake and his girlfriend Sophie opened up about a miscarriage they suffered in secret last year.

“Even though I was only six weeks pregnant it really hit me hard,” Sophie said.

“With this pregnancy we still carry that worry, so it was nice to have the scan and know that everything is okay.”

Sophie also went on to say that the couple had been trying for a baby for a year, undergoing testing too.

“We had been trying for a year and a half and I was doing ovulation tests and everything and Jake said: ‘Stop putting pressure on us, it will happen when it’s meant to happen.’”

Jake previously had a very public relationship with Danielle Fogarty, daughter of Carl Fogarty, who he met after sparking up a friendship with Carl while in the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! jungle. Jake and Danielle spent three years together, however they announced their split in 2018 seven months after their engagement.
