Mark Owen adds to Take That baby boom

Monday April 2, 2012

"Thrilled" Take That star Mark Owen has confirmed he's the third member of the band set to welcome a baby this year.

Mark, a father of two, joins bandmates Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams who have both recently announced their wives are expecting.

A message on the band's website from Mark and his wife Emma said the couple were "delighted to confirm reports that we are nearly six months pregnant".

Mark said: "Myself, Emma, Elwood and Willow are thrilled with the news and cannot wait to meet the new addition to our family.

"We would like to say thank you to all our family and friends for their support and kind messages." 

Gary announced in February that he is to be a father for the fourth time.

And Robbie recently spoke of his tears at finding out that he and his wife Ayda are to become parents for the first time.
