And Casey finally revealed all by letting off a cannon of blue confetti - symbolising a baby boy.

OK! Magazine captured the spirited celebration and Marnie told the publication she was absolutely thrilled with the outcome.

"I was genuinely so shocked. I just screamed and said: "Oh my God, it’s a boy! I didn’t think I would produce a boy," she said.

"Everyone I spoke to said they thought we were having a girl so I convinced myself I wanted a girl. Deep down I wanted a boy all along. It’s made me so excited for the birth," she added.

Casey said he was "over the moon" and had always wanted a son.

"I wanted a boy first and a girl next,” he said. “It’s brought us even closer together. We want two or three children altogether," he said.

And the gender reveal party included a few famous faces.
