Jamie Redknapp and Frida Andersson are expecting their first child together. It has been reported that the former footballer's girlfriend is three months pregnant and is expecting a baby in November. 

Jamie Redknapp is set to become a dad for the third time with his model girlfriend, Frida Andersson. The Sun reported that the couple is expecting a baby in November and close sources say that they are ecstatic. 

A source close to the couple told the publication, “Jamie and Frida are absolutely delighted. They’ve been virtually inseparable in lockdown, and their relationship has gone from strength to strength. The couple started telling their nearest and dearest last week.”

The source continued to say that, although Jamie is looking forward to having a newborn baby, he is apprehensive about the less enjoyable parts of parenthood. They said, “Jamie’s been telling pals he’s really excited to be a dad again—less excited about the sleepless nights, and ­nappy-changing. But both he and Frida will be brilliant, hands-on parents.”

Frida appeared to address these pregnancy rumours on social media. A fan commented on her most recent post congratulating the star on her pregnancy. The fan said, "Lovely news on your new baby. Congratulations to you both." Frida replied with three prayer emojis, which appeared to confirm the pregnancy. 

Jamie is already a father to two children from his previous marriage to Louise Redknapp. Louise and Jamie married in 1998 and were together for nearly 20 years. The couple has two sons, Charley, 16, and Beau, 12. Since their split, Louise Redknapp has hinted that Strictly factored into her break-up with Jamie Redknapp.

Jamie and Louise finalised their divorce in 2018, and Frida and Jamie began dating in August 2020. Frida was also previously married to American hedge fund manager Jonathan Lourie, with whom she shares four children.
