The 37-year-old model - who divorced Gary Lineker last year - is expecting a baby with US lawyer Nate Greenwald, who she started dating in April 2016 after moving next door to him in Los Angeles.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: "She is thrilled and so excited she's pregnant.

"She's been keeping it a secret until she was over 12 weeks but now she's telling family and friends.

"It's nice because Gary never wanted to have kids with her. That was one of the reasons they broke up. So she thought she might have missed her chance to have any more kids."

And Gary is said to be delighted for Danielle - who also has a 14-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

The insider explained: "Gary couldn't be happier for her.

"He thinks Nate is a nice bloke and has been for dinner with them a few times. They all get on."

Gary and Danielle officially divorced in January 2016 but they had amicably separated some months previously.

The Welsh beauty then made the decision to relocate to LA to pursue an acting career and found love along the way with entertainment lawyer Nate, 41.

Meanwhile, former England and Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary - who has four sons with his first wife Michelle Cockayne - has admitted he found it tough having to go through the break-up from Danielle in such a public way.

He said: "Obviously when you know you are going through something personal that you know is going to be public, it makes it quite difficult, and it becomes a weight on your shoulders."
