This is Dawn and Chris’s second child together since they married back in 2012.
Art, their first born, was born in 2015, but Dawn revealed that she was expecting again in January. She excitedly told listeners of the Get On It podcast: “Hope your 2017 is going really well. Mine certainly is! I am starting a new novel this week, I’m about to turn 38 and I am pregnant.”

Dawn has previously spoken about how becoming a mother has changed her and how losing a parent very young also influenced her approach to motherhood.
Speaking with the Loose Women panelists back in April Dawn said: “She died over 30 years ago, so it’s very difficult for me to feel sad. But I put myself in her shoes and think ‘How would she feel?’ I’ve only got a two year old, but I know I’m not going to be overly protective but let them know they can fall back on me.”
