The announcement of the new arrival came just a few hours after Sophie admitted she felt "ready" to welcome her baby into the world.

She posted a photo of herself cradling her huge bump and wrote on the photo-sharing app: "Ready for the next bit now (sic)"

Richard shared the same image on his Instagram page and wrote: "Looking so beautiful and ready to pop. Here we go again!"

The 39-year-old singer previously admitted she thinks her fifth child will be her last.

She said: "[My sons] are excited actually. I think they slightly roll their eyes, like, 'Oh, another one'.

"I think I'll probably call it a day. I think five is quite a lot."

The British pop star announced her pregnancy news on Chris Evans' BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show in August, describing the impending arrival of her fifth baby as "mental".

During a chat about her new album, The Song Diaries, Sophie casually shared: "The album will come out around the same time as my fifth infant because I'm having my fifth baby. Mental!"

She added: "You get more relaxed with the chaos ... says the woman who just ... we just went away Richard and I with five kids, because our eldest brought a mate, and I took a book which seemed like the most optimistic thing I could have done!

"It didn't even get open - that's without baby."
