Meanwhile, the couple also opened up on the heartache of suffering a miscarriage last year.
Sophie explained: "Even though I was only six weeks pregnant it really hit me hard. With this pregnancy we still carry that worry, so it was nice to have the scan and know that everything is okay.
"We had been trying for a year and a half and I was doing ovulation tests and everything and Jake said: 'Stop putting pressure on us, it will happen when it's meant to happen.' But when you really want something it's so hard to not feel disappointed every month."
Sophie, 27, who already has six-year-old son, Freddie, also took to social media to announce their happy news yesterday.
"Our little family is soon to become 4 & we're overwhelmed with happiness & excitement to welcome to the little one into the world," she wrote.
"Jake will be amazing dad & Freddie will be the best big brother."
Aw. What lovely news - congratulations to the whole fam!
