Take That singer Mark Owen has confirmed that he will become a father for a third time this year, after he announced his wife's pregnancy.
Other Take That group members Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams have also confirmed that their wives are expecting babies.
Williams, who married in August 2010, stated last week, on his blog, that wife Ayda is expecting, while Barlow will become a dad for the fourth time after announcing the news last month.
A message on Take That's website from Owen and his wife Emma said the couple were "delighted to confirm reports that we are nearly six months pregnant".
Owen said: "Myself, Emma, Elwood and Willow are thrilled with the news and cannot wait to meet the new addition to our family. We would like to say thank you to all our family and friends for their support and kind messages."
