Diversity's Jordan Banjo and wife announce they're expecting their third child

Diversity 's Jordan Banjo and his wife are expecting another baby.

Taking to Instagram earlier this evening, the star shared a sweet snap of himself and wife Naomi holding a picture of a scan as the happy couple announced their news with fans online.

"The Banjo Family is growing even more [love-heart emoji] Baby number 3 on the way," Jordan captioned the adorable update to his 567,000 followers.

Former Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent was one of the first to congratulate the couple on their news, writing: "Let me know how you go yeh…. Wildcats."

Helen Flanagan - who recently split from her fiancé Scott Sinclair - also sent her well-wishes to Jordan and Naomi underneath the post, with one-time Love Island winner Cara Delahoyde commenting: "Congratulations."

Co-star Perri Kiely had a funnier response to the couple's happy new, joking: "Ermmm when were you gonna tell me..."

Jordan and Naomi are preparing to welcome their third bundle of joy into the world in April 2023 - a new sibling for their two young children Cassius Ashley, who was born in May 2018, and Mayowa 'Mimi' Angel, whom they welcomed in July 2019.

The doting parents tied the knot earlier this year, after delaying their nuptials amid the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown restrictions.

"Forever and ever. Mr & Mrs Banjo," Jordan captioned a snap on Instagram from their happy day in August, which was quickly met with an outpouring of love from his followers.

Jordan and Naomi dated for almost five years before the dancer popped the question during an idyllic holiday in the Maldives in January 2020.

At the time, Jordan shared a snap of him and the mother of his children posing on the beach, with a lit-up sign that read: "Will you marry me?" visible in the background.

Earlier this year, Jordan showed off an impressive body transformation, explaining how getting his "mindset right" helped him achieve his current physique when captioning some before-and-after shots on Instagram.

"Still shocks me when I see this," the dancer began in his reflective caption.

"Way less dancing, no diet structure and a lack of motivation had me how I was in the first pic! But getting the mindset right and having a focus which was getting ready for tour has me where I am now."

He added: "Random I know but thought I’d share because looking at those pics next to each other just gave me a shock."

"Nice bro," former X Factor contestant Jack Quickenden commented underneath the impressive update, while boxing promoter Eddie Hearn wrote: "Easy done mate! Congrats on the get back!"

Reality TV star Rykard Jenkins pointed out that the star looked fine in the 'before' picture, telling Jordan: "You look hench on the left though bro, but either way more life."
