However, their wedding was postponed due to coronavirus.

In May 2021, the couple announced their pregnancy, with Daisy joking the pandemic ‘wasn’t going to get in the way’ of their future.

“We have been keeping the biggest (smallest) secret of our lives!” she wrote.

“We couldn’t let Covid get in the way of any more of our plans so instead of saying ‘I do’ this year, we’ve been growing and preparing for our precious baby son or daughter (still can’t believe those words are coming out of my mouth!)

“Cannot wait to tell you all more about our journey so far.”
