Arsenal and England footballer Theo and his sports physiotherapist wife will have an extra special Christmas ahead of them after revealing their happy baby news in a statement on Friday (13 December).
A post on 24-year-old Theo's Facebook page read: "Me & Mel are happy to confirm we are expecting our first child, which is due early next summer. We are both very excited at such happy news just a few months after getting married.
"We are really looking forward to becoming parents."
The post has generated more than 11,000 likes in just a few hours.
Childhood sweethearts Theo and Melanie became engaged on New Year's Eve in 2011, after Theo popped the question at their Hertfordshire home. They started dating after meeting at a local shopping centre when they were just 15.
They married at an Italian castle in June.
Congrats to Theo and Melanie!
