‘Myself and my wife @JodiWonderland are delighted to say we are expecting our first baby! We are so happy and cannot wait to be parents x,’ Kian, 31, wrote on the social networking site yesterday.

After followers responded with their congratulations, Kian later Tweeted: ‘Thank you all so much for the lovely messages. We are so excited to be parents. Thanks for all the love and support x.’¬†

‘For those worrying..Wonderland are not breaking up!That band means the world to me & the baby in my belly loves listening to my girls sing,’ Jodi, 28, Tweeted.
