Pregnant Jacqueline Jossa reveals husband’s baby name plea

The former EastEnders actress is expecting her second child this year

Jacqueline Jossa has joked husband Dan Osborne is begging her to choose a short name for their second child.

The couple are expecting a sibling for daughter Ella, three, while Dan is also a dad to four-year-old son Teddy from a previous relationship.

Former TOWIE star Dan, 26, recently had both of his kids’ names tattooed on his body, so naturally he’ll have to do the same for baby number three!

Former EastEnders actress Jacqueline, 25, told Closer magazine: “He jokes, ‘It’s got to be a short name’ so I keep suggesting long ones!”

Dan, who owns a tattoo shop, has both of his children’s name inked under his ribs in large script, so perhaps it’s understandable he’d like baby three to have a short name!

He also has a tattoo in honour of Jacqueline, but rather than having her rather long name all spelled out he chose to stick with a J initial!

Meanwhile, Dan debuted some new, very impressive artwork on Instagram in February, revealing portrait tattoos of both children on his legs.

He also has an image of Teddy and Ella at his and Jacqueline’s wedding tattooed on his leg.

The couple met in 2014 and married last year at a lavish ceremony attending by their famous friends and loved ones.

Like many celebrity couples, they’ve had to fend off pesky rumours of trouble in their relationship.

But Jacqueline told the mag she’s learned to not let the gossip get to her: “It’s hard when people are talking about your relationship and speculating and you know none of it is true. But I’ve grown a thick skin to it.

“People will always want to say their bit, but we know we’re happy and that’s all that matters.”

The couple revealed in January that a second baby is on the way and although they’ve found out the sex, they haven’t made it public.

Speaking on her YouTube channel – “Jacqueline’s World” – back in February, Jacqueline said: “It’s really hard to say [if I think I’m having a boy or a girl] because I already know!”

She added to OK! magazine: “Neither of us mind if it’s a boy or a girl but for Ella’s sake I think it would be nice for her to have a sister. She calls her dolls her sisters and sometimes it makes me sad she doesn’t have a real one.”

Jacqueline added that she and Dan won’t be having anymore kids, saying: “I think I’m done now.”
