Sharing a picture of their ultrasound on Twitter, Adams said: “We’re so excited to announce that our family is expanding.
“After what feels like a lifetime, we can finally say we’re going to be parents!
“We’re so excited to share this magical journey with you all, the ups, the downs everything in between.
“Welcome to the world little one.
Baig, 22, a blogger and make-up artist, grew up in north Leeds and the couple still live together in the city.
