I dont know if words alone can explain how full of joy and happiness we both are. It has been a more difficult journey to this point than most people know but we are now here with one of the most precious gifts in the world… A little girl!

I have so many strong and incredible women around me, I know she will have great examples to follow. Especially this woman right here – my wife and my rock.

You are going to be the best mum in the world. Im so excited to see our little one grow up and if by any chance she wanted to be like her daddy and bust a few moves, Ive already got the dancing shoes covered! Cant wait to meet you little sweetie.

The news was shared with a photo of Ashley hanging a pair of converse sneakers around his neck, while Francesca showed off the baby scan.

Shortly after announcing the news, Ashleys brother Jordan, whos only just become a dad himself, shared his celebrations and said: Youre already the best aunty and uncle to my little Cass (as you can see Ashs huge smile holding his nephew)
