Jennifer admitted to OK!: ‘Greg was in Newcastle working and I was in Liverpool so I just had to FaceTime him. He didn’t know I was doing the pregnancy test. No one knew I was pregnant!
‘We got to the stage where we were like: “If this happens, it would be amazing.” We took it in our stride and didn’t put any pressure on ourselves.’
She’s already decided that she won’t be finding out the sex of her bubba, continuing: ‘I feel like I’m the one who’s got to go through labour, so if I’ve got a little surprise at the end, it might get me through however many hours it’s going to be!’
But Greg thinks he already knows, adding: ‘I’m convinced it’s a girl, though. I dreamt it. A little girl ran to me. I don’t know how because she was a baby, but she did.’

But there are some notable people who’ve failed to send their best wishes – Greg’s ex-Geordie Shore co-stars.
Yep. Despite starring on the MTV show for the whole first series, none of the cast appear to have publicly acknowledged his big news.
Hmm. Maybe they sent a text, eh?
