Meanwhile, Rebecca posted a sweet photo of herself breastfeeding her new bundle of joy on her own Instagram story.

The couple have not yet confirmed the name they have chosen for their baby boy.

Days ago, Rebecca, 25, told how her waters broke after reaching her due date.

She wrote on Instagram: "My midwives were sent from heaven. My waters have broken."


Sharing a black and white photo of herself alongside Marcel, Rebecca wrote: "I've been in the early stages of labour since yesterday morning, contractions are still quite far apart and inconsistent but my midwife is coming to check me today to see if I've dilated and also do a sweep if needed.

"Thank you for all your messages baby will soon be making his grand appearance, I've just been trying to rest and preserve my energy."

Earlier that day, Rebecca explained how she was in the 'worst pain ever' the previous night after having 'strong contractions' and 'lightening crutch'.

Marcel, 35, proposed to his girlfriend in August, moments after they revealed they were having a baby boy at a sweet gender reveal.

Former Blazin Squad star Marcel revealed how she told him she was pregnant in the summer in an exclusive interview.

Marcel told OK! at the time: "I was in the studio with my headphones on and she tapped me on the shoulder. She had loads of pregnancy tests in her hand.

"It was crazy! It’s my first baby and I’ve been waiting a long time for this, so it’s just mad."


Rebecca added: "I meant to do a big reveal to Marcel. I wanted to do this big thing, but I was so excited I just ran downstairs and I was like, 'Oh, my gosh!'"

The couple revealed they were trying for a baby after Rebecca suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage.

Singer Marcel explained: "We don’t really like to talk about it. We found out we were pregnant very early in our relationship, and both felt like we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together, so we were getting ready for the baby.

"And then we found out we had a miscarriage. We both took it really badly. It took a little while for us to get over it, but it did make us stronger because when you go through something like that, it makes you be there for the other person."
