The good news was announced today by Ben’s representative, who announced that more details will be released soon.
It was a dazzling year for the couple who tied the knot last August after only two weeks of getting to know each other.
The pair stunned their online followers by sharing photos of their surprise wedding ceremony that took place on a luxury yacht in Massachusetts.
Ben said he asked New York Socialist Jackie the question after she removed him from his feet after his separation from Una Healy.
Rugby star Ben congratulated Jackie for “showing him a deeply devoted love” during a “difficult time”.
Six months after their wedding, sources close to the couple said they were expecting their first baby.
“Ben and Jackie are on the moon. They are so excited to be parents for the first time and can’t wait to start their new family life. “
“The plan is to return from the United States to the United Kingdom and raise the baby here – there is a lot to organize but they cannot wait for their new arrival,” a source told MailOnline.
Ben is already the father of the children Aoife, seven, and Tadhg, five, whom he shares with former wife Una.
After four years of marriage, Ben separated from Ana in 2018 after admitting to having cheated on her with a publicist.
The family was only weeks away from being uprooted from the United States for Ben’s rugby career, but the move was canceled after the scandal with Ben who went it alone.
After the move, a new single Ben was introduced to Jackie by a mutual friend and it was love at first sight.
“Jackie is the greatest human being I have ever met – she is beautiful inside and out, intelligent, charming, funny, generous, kind, gentle, energetic, the list goes on.
“She will be a great stepmother for Aoife and Tadhg and offers me a future that I cannot wait to explore with her,” he said.
