Jane Moore asked: “Due in December, do you think it’s gonna be a Christmas baby?”

The pair didn’t give away their due date but hinted: “Well, it could be, very possibly.”

Amy continued to say: “I’m hoping for the baby’s sake maybe it doesn’t arrive on Christmas Day because they will probably hate us forever.

“My grandma was a Christmas day baby and she always hated it so I’d feel bad about that.”

Congratulations to the beautiful pair!
