Glover, 31, said last month they were expecting two babies, writing below a picture of two chicks: "Soooo…The biggest adventure of our lives.. 2 little (chicks) of our own arriving this summer!!!"

Backshall, 44, said: "Seems this summer we'll have some little ones of our own."

The couple married in September 2016 after dating for about two years.
