What did Brooke Vincent say?

Brooke, 28, confirmed the exciting news on her Instagram Story last night (January 14).

She accompanied the message with a sweet shot of little Mexx holding a sign, which read: “The Bryan brothers 2021.”

It’s nice to know I’m having a boy and he will be so close in age to Mexx

Meanwhile, Brooke wrote: “We are having another boy. We never found out with Mexx & this time we just said why not. To be honest I’ve enjoyed both pregnancy’s with having found out and not.

“It’s nice to know I’m having a boy and he will be so close in age to Mexx hopefully they will be little besties.”

“@kean8 panicked & got dramatic and said he needed time & I can’t just spring that onto him. We then spent the journey going through the pros and cons and when she asked we just said yes!

“It was nice to be honest and also made both pregnancy journeys different.”

When did Brooke announce her pregnancy?

Brooke announced her second pregnancy back in November.

Speaking about finding out when she was pregnant, she told OK!: “We wanted another baby and we wanted them close together, so it was really a heart warming moment.”

However, she revealed the couple wanted to keep their baby’s gender a surprise.

She added: “I think it’s more magnified when you’re having a baby that you just want them to be healthy, so I really don’t mind.”

Meanwhile, the soap star recently opened up on the struggles of being pregnant in lockdown.

Opening up on Instagram, she said: “I’ve found this pregnancy completely different to my last. The change from being pregnant in 2019 to 2021 has been nothing short of drastic.

“The fact nothing is the same at the moment is just horrible. Talks of partners not being able to come to scans, the uncertainty around birth plans. Everything is just up in the air and it’s really hard to make sense of it all.”
