Others couldn’t help but speculate about the sex of the baby from the scan.

“Sneaky feeling it’s a girl,” suggested one, while another fan asked: “It’s a boy, right?”

Way to confuse the parents to be!

The most popular way to ‘guess the sex’ of the baby is to examine which angle the ‘nub’ is pointing. Called ‘the nub theory’, it refers to the little tube shape that appears in the genital area.

If the ‘nub’ is straight, or not pointing up more than 30 degrees, it’s thought to suggest a girl.

Becky revealed the couple had been trying to fall pregnant ‘obsessively’ last year, but they had panicked when ‘nothing happened’.

“We decided to stop for a bit, then a few months later I fell pregnant,” she told OK!

Mario added: “It was getting quite stressful, so we decided we needed to relax for a bit. But as soon as we went back to just having fun, she fell pregnant!”

Mario, who is already a doting uncle to sister Giovanna Fletcher’s two sons Buzz, four, and Buddy, two, and niece Summer Rae, said it has always been his dream to become a father.

“It’s been my dream to become a dad for a long time now, so I’m over the moon,” he said.
