Writing on Twitter former England defender, Rio, wrote said: "We got our wish, another Ferdinand on route!!

"I can't wait to go through this whole pregnancy together and then bring our little human into this world."

The Ferdinand's pregnancy announcement comes nine months after the couple tied the knot in Turkey last September.

Rio and Kate have been together since 2017. They got engaged a year later with the help of Ferdinand's three children - Lorenz, 13, Tate, 11, and Tia, nine - from his marriage with his late wife, Rebecca Ellison.

Ellison died in 2015 after being diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time. She was aged 34.
