Mollie’s BBC Radio 1 co-host Matt Edmondson added: “Congratulations guys. What a beautiful picture. That baby has no idea how lucky it is to have you both as parents.”

It’s not always been smooth sailing for the happy couple.

They were first linked all the way back in March 2018. However, things went sour and they reportedly briefly split for five months in August 2018.

Reports claimed that things were then back on between the pair in February 2019.

Stuart, 34, is one of the country’s most beloved cricket stars. He celebrated his 500th test wicket last summer and is one of England’s most successful bowlers.

He was also nominated for Sports Personality of the Year, which was eventually won by Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton.

When are Mollie and Stuart getting married?

Meanwhile, the sports star recently opened up about their wedding plans after being asked if they had set a date yet.

Stuart told Express: “No we haven’t got as far as that but it’s certainly at the forefront of our minds and it will happen at the beginning of next year.”

He got down on one knee on New Year’s Day in 2021 while they were out for a walk together in London.

Mollie said excitedly on Instagram at the time: “A thousand times yes! I still can’t believe it, the most magical start to the new year! I can’t wait to spend all my years with you.”
