"It’s been a little while since posting on here which has been a real mix of emotions. With all that is happening in the world it didn’t feel like the right time to share but we also know it’s okay to keep hope and pray for peace whilst acknowledging that we feel blessed and grateful."

Addressing Nathan's battle with his health, Sair continued: "Last year was a challenging time for us both with Nathan’s chondroblastoma surgery on his pelvis. It’s been a long road to recovery and still has many obstacles ahead as we deal with the spread of the tumour to his lungs.

"Life can be difficult and there’ll always be challenges to face but there are also important lessons to be learnt and gifts to be cherished.

"We’re so excited for the arrival of Baby Chilton in Spring 2024."

Sair Khan revealed the baby is due in Spring 2024.
