The couple have may not stop at three children having previously revealed they want "three or four" children.

And with three boys, it may be that Jodi wants to try for a baby girl.

She has previously said: "It's hard to think about right now but Kian is from a big family of seven, so ideally we'd like three or four.

"The Irish have big families. We'd love a girl, but so long as they were happy and healthy, that's all that really matters."

Asked how she felt when she learned she was expecting a second son, she added: "We'd like a girl at some point but we just wanted a healthy, happy baby. I never dreamt before Koa of being a mum to little boys, but now I'm obsessed with boys - they're such cool little dudes.

"I thought Koa needed a companion - Zeke even wore one of Koa's little baby grows in the hospital,' she added.
