Speaking about her pregnancy to OK! magazine Julia admitted she was feeling "fantastic" now she's in her second trimester and she 'loves' being pregnant.

Speaking about baby names Julia said: "We've got lots of girls' names but we haven't got any boys' names yet."

Ben added: "I want Han if it's a boy as then he'll be Han Silver, which sounds like Han Solo and I'm a big Star Wars fan."

But it looks like Ben may not be getting the name Han as Julia said: "Plus, Ben thinks he looks like a young Harrison Ford! I've ruled out Han so boy names are proving difficult.

"Ben also wanted Wolfgang but that got vetoed. Although, weirdly, my mum wanted to call me Wolfgang if I'd been a boy - I'm glad I was a girl!

I want Han if it's a boy as then he'll be Han Silver, which sounds like Han Solo and I'm a big Star Wars fan.

"I think you've got to be a certain kind of cool to pull off a name like that and I don't think I'm that brave."

Julia and Ben, who married December last year in Manchester Albert Hall, announced their pregnancy in May.
