Jake told HELLO! magazine: “I’m so excited to be a dad. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and I feel completely ready for it.
“I hope it will like sport and I can teach it everything my mum and dad taught me.
“I’m a bit nervous about not knowing what to do. Babies are so little and vulnerable.”
Sophie is sure Jake will be “an amazing dad” after seeing how he is with her son from a previous relationship, Freddie.
Meanwhile, the former X Factor star admitted looking after the youngster has got him used to being around kids.
Jake also wrote on Instagram: “I AM GOING TO BE A DAD!! I can’t believe it, we are going to have a little Jake or little Sophie causing mayhem!!
“My dad was the best dad in the world and I also have an incredible step dad, I wish my dad was about to see how I will be a role model to this baby.
It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and I feel completely ready for it.
“Fred’s super excited as well. 2021 is going to be the biggest test yet, but I’m so excited for it! (sic)”
Jake Quickenden on lockdown with girlfriend
This comes after former Dancing On Ice champion Jake recently admitted living in lockdown nearly “tore apart” his relationship because the couple aren’t used to spending so much time together.
He told new! magazine: “For the first week or so, it nearly tore us apart. But we’re starting to get used to it.
“Even though we live together, we’re not usually with each other this much so it’s been a shock. But it’s nice.
“We’ve also got Freddie running around, tearing the place to pieces. We don’t really get any ‘us’ time, but we’re working on it and we’ve definitely become closer.”
