Take That star to be father again
Take That star Mark Owen said he was "thrilled" after he confirmed he is the third member of the band set to become a father this year.
Owen, a father-of-two, joins bandmates Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams who have both recently announced their wives are pregnant.
A message on the band's website from Owen and his wife Emma said the couple were "delighted to confirm reports that we are nearly six months pregnant".
Owen said: "Myself, Emma, Elwood and Willow are thrilled with the news and cannot wait to meet the new addition to our family. We would like to say thank you to all our family and friends for their support and kind messages."
Barlow announced last month that he is to be a father for the fourth time and last week Williams posted a message on his blog saying his wife Ayda is pregnant.
The 38-year-old singer, who rejoined Take That to tour last year, married in August 2010.
