Blue singer Lee Ryan is set to become a father for the third time, according to reports.
His girlfriend Verity Paris is thought to be pregnant after a year of dating.
The former EastEnders actor, 37, is already a dad to 13-year-old daughter Bluebell and son Rayn, 12, from previous relationships.
In photos obtained by The Sun, Lee and Paris can be seen walking along the beach in Malaga while looking at her growing bump.
A source told the publication: "They couldn't be happier. Pals have joked it will mean Lee will have some time to chat to someone who understands him.
"It's early days but they're excited."
Daily Star has reached out to Lee's representative for comment.
Lee and Verity, whose real name is Verity Morley, were first spotted together back in January 2020.
The couple then enjoyed a romantic break together the following month.
Verity appeared on The X Factor back in 2009 and works as an Ariana Grande tribute artist.
Lee has had his ups and downs with his love life since he shot to fame with Blue back in 2000.
He famously found himself caught up in a love triangle during his stint on Celebrity Big Brother with Jasmine Waltz and Casey Batchelor in 2014.
The singer was engaged to hairdresser Samantha Miller in 2008 after meeting her on MySpace. They had a son, Rayn, who was born the same year.
He was engaged to Atomic Kitten singer Liz McClarnon in 2003 but later split after she said being in a celebrity couple was too hard.
The singer was also romantically linked to beauty queen and Kazakhstani model Diora Romanova in 2018.

Lee also had a romance with daughter Bluebell's mother Jessica Keevil.
He was pictured on a romantic date with Love Island star Laura Anderson in 2019.
The former Strictly Come Dancing star previously said of his relationship history: "I don’t have any regrets about the mistakes I’ve made because they’ve shown me that something good can come out of something bad."
Earlier this year, Lee opened up about the trauma he suffered during his childhood when he witnessed his friend's dad try to shoot her, before turning the gun on himself.
The life-changing incident happened before he found fame with Blue.
Speaking on podcast Family Business he said he "acted like a nutjob" because he was so convinced his life would end suddenly and he "didn't care".
