Lee Ryan from Blue is ready to become a father for the second time, as his wife is expecting.
The musician, 40, announced his good news with a photo of himself and his wife, Verity Paris, whom he married last year.
Lee leaned in for a kiss as he placed his hand on his wife’s stomach.
A statement shared on the official Blue Twitter page read: ‘Me and my wife, Verity, are very pleased to announce our new baby, that will be born this year.’
‘The news came out of the blue’, he joked.
‘I found out on my 40th birthday! What a present from god’.
His bandmates are ‘thrilled’ for the newlyweds, according to the statement.
With the arrival of Lee and Verity, he will become a father for the sixth time.
Lee already has a 16-year-old daughter named Bluebell, whose mother is Lee’s ex-girlfriend Jessica Keevil.
Rayn, his adolescent son with former girlfriend Samantha Miller, was born in 2008.
Meanwhile, he and Verity have a one-year-old daughter and a newborn girl born last year.
After dating for two years, Lee and Verity secretly married in March 2022 in a small ceremony in Gibraltar.
He told The Sun earlier in the year: ‘I met someone finally who loves and supports me in everything I do.
‘Verity is a beautiful, strong and loving woman who I treasure. And I’m a lucky man to have such a wonderful mother for my child, and now wife, in her.
‘I’ve never been more calm and grounded and I have Verity to thank for that. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life because of the wonderful family life I now have.’
