Both Jess and Dom spoke to Elz the Witch on JD’s In the Duffle Bag podcast last week, where they finally revealed the gender of their baby.

Admitting they wanted to enjoy the 'newborn bubble' after their son's birth, Jess said: "It wasn't so much of a secret, people made more out of it.”

Dom then added: "I think it was because they were expecting some kind of grand announcement when he was born, what his name was and stuff and I think we just weren't really fussed."

Jess continued: "I think we just enjoyed keeping it to ourselves and it's been quite nice being – like everyone talks about the 'newborn bubble' – and it is you just kind of it's just you and them and you're just getting on with your life. We share quite a lot I feel, so I feel like we just didn't need to announce what he was, who he is whatever but yeah, we're not afraid of showing it."
