Announcing the pregnancy in September, Aston told fans: “On May 29th 2017 we found out that our lives were going to change forever! This secret has been so hard to keep, but I’m so excited to finally be able to share the news with everybody that me and my beautiful lady are going to be parents!

“I’m NEVER speechless but words can’t describe how I feel. All I know is there’s no feeling like it! Sarah, I promise to be the best daddy ever to our baby boy/girl.
