Jack Whitehall has announced he’s expecting his first child with long-term girlfriend Roxy Horner. The couple made the announcement in a sweet Instagram post on May 14.

A second said: “So cute! Congrats.” A third wrote: “Congratulations to you both! You’ll love it, it’s the best feeling in the world being a parent x.”

The baby announcement comes after the couple opened up on their devastating miscarriage. Roxy told Hello! magazine: "We had a miscarriage last year and so there was a part of me that was worried to open up too soon about this baby because I was so worried something would happen again and I didn’t want to have to kind of tell the world.”
