The little one will have no shortage of pals to play with: Mario’s sister Giovanna has two children – Buzz, four, and Buddy, two – with her husband, McFly’s Tom Fletcher, and another one on the way!

Mario also shared the happy news on Instagram, telling fans: “I am sooooo happy to announce that my beautiful fiancée @beckymiesner1 and myself are expecting our first baby together!! #babyfalcone.”

Fans have inundated the couple with congratulatory messages.

Mario shot to fame on The Only Way Is Essex, where he was best known for his on-screen romance with co-star Lucy Mecklenburgh, which ended in 2012.

He became engaged to Becky last year after popping the question during a romantic holiday abroad.

Mario announced the engagement via Instagram, sharing a photo of the moment he dropped to one knee and asked for Becky’s hand in marriage.
