In the picture, the children are all holding ultra sound scan photos of their unborn sibling. Alex wrote: "We are all very excited for our new baby to arrive next year!! Number four!"

Alex, 34, and Steven, 36, are parents to daughters Lexie, Lourdes and Lilly-Ella.
The couple and their kids currently split their time between Liverpool and Los Angeles, as Steven plays for LA Galaxy. He told Hello magazine last year the family loved their new California lifestyle, particularly as he wasn't recognised as much in the US and could take his daughters out more often.
"I've become a cool dad all of a sudden because I can take the kids out and no one interferes," he said.
"We can take them to the park, the beach, fairgrounds, water parks and be there for six hours and I might hear one person say my name and they're not even sure if it's me, so I just smile. The kids have been shocked I'm around and can do more things with them."
Meanwhile, the couple have been inundated with congratulatory tweets wishing Alex a happy pregnancy and safe delivery... and wondering if baby number four may be a boy.
