The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star has confirmed his girlfriend Missé Beqiri is expecting after posting a picture of himself kissing her baby bump.

He wrote on Instsagram: "My world is complete... I can't wait to meet you #boy or #girl (sic)"

The 26-year-old fashion designer - who turned his back on the ITVBe series last summer - added a similar message on his Twitter account to the same picture, tweeting: "My world is complete! I can't wait to meet you my baby (sic)"

Speculation that the pair are expecting has been rife since March when eagle-eyed fans claimed the 'Real Housewives Of Cheshire' star could be pregnant after she shared several holiday pictures on Instagram.

Missé is already a mother to son Julian, who she shares with Preston North End footballer Anders Lindegaard.

The former couple married in June 2014 but divorced in August 2016.

Earlier this year, Jake and Missé were linked with their own reality TV show, and their latest news could make the possibility of them getting a programme even more of a possibility.

A source said at the time: "They are definitely up for doing a show together and channels are already preparing some ideas to pitch to them."

Jake has also previously admitted he would be keen to team up with the brunette beauty on a series.

He said: "We have spoke about doing a show together. I'm always up for it. Work comes first but if something came along we wouldn't say no."
