Jake Quickenden was completely in awe of his pregnant girlfriend Sophie Church as she blessed her followers with a sweet baby bump photo in celebration of her reaching the 30-week mark of her pregnancy. 

The Dancing on Ice star is expecting his first child with Sophie, a 27-year-old therapist, although she is already mother to six-year-old son Freddie from a previous relationship. 

As she began the seventh month of her pregnancy on Saturday, Sophie shared a black and white selfie of her sitting in bed while cradling her bare baby bump. 

‘Hello 30 weeks,’ she captioned the image. 

Jake, 32, also shared the same photo and praised his girlfriend in the caption, which read: ‘30 weeks today and look how amazing she looks… wow! 

‘I’m not bothered about being soppy, proud of you, sorry I’m away but will be home soon, what an exciting year we have ahead of us!!! Love you beautiful thanks for carrying the special package for us. @sophie__church.’ 

TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson reminisced in the comments: ‘So beautiful. I was the size of small housing estate…’ 

It’s an exciting time for Jake and Sophie who previously suffered a miscarriage when she was six weeks pregnant. 

Speaking to Lorraine Kelly recently about their ordeal, Jake said: ‘It was really hard, so hard for Soph as it’s her body. 

‘It affected both of us and honestly it was really tough but luckily I tried to keep you positive and keep you going and here we are today.’ 

On a brighter note, Jake shared his excitement about becoming a first-time dad and said: ‘We’re great, can’t stop smiling,’ while Sophie added: ‘So far it hasn’t been too good, I felt really sick, but I’m feeling better now. We’ve only got five months now.’ 

Teasing what type of parenting style he’ll adopt, Jake joked: ‘I’m not going to grow up, I want to be a stupid fun dad…

‘I’m not too sure about nappies but apart from that, happy.’

The couple are deciding to wait to find out the baby’s gender and said it will be a ‘nice surprise to find out on the day’.
