Meanwhile, new mum Kerry shared the same image and message on her own Instagram. 

In April this year, the couple told of their joy at expecting a baby after a heartbreaking miscarriage.

The couple, who married in 2012, revealed earlier this year that Kerry-Lucy was expecting their first child.

Appearing on Loose Women, Kerry-Lucy, 36, admitted she had to do three pregnancy tests before she could convince her husband it was positive.

She said: 'I had to do three tests to convince Lee it was positive. The first was a faint line. I told him I think I'm pregnant and he said no. I got another one and the line was thick but he didn't believe it.'

Lee added: 'I didn't believe it so the next day Kerry did a digital test so I couldn't argue with that one. So far, it's all going well.

'We were on Loose Women when Kerry was pregnant and I just wanted to tell everyone!'

Lee also discussed telling his Steps bandmates Claire Richards, Ian 'H' Watkins, Faye Tozer and Lisa Scott Lee.

He recalled: 'It was wonderful telling them. We were on Zoom playing the year ahead and I told them I was going to be busy and put the scan up. 

'They were crying with tears of joy. There was so much going on - I filmed it to show to Kelly.'

Lee currently has his hands full promoting Steps' latest album What The Future Holds, with Kerry-Lucy admitting it will be 'really difficult' when the band's tour begins. 

She explained: 'He'll only be a couple of months old so it'll be really difficult. I'm going to love being on tour as much as I'm going to hate being away when it happens.

Discussing their miscarriage as well as both of them losing a parent, Kerry-Lucy added: 'The last years have been tough, I lost my mum and he lost his dad and also a pet. We had four months of hell. 

Lee added: 'It's been tough but it's brought us closer together.'

Asked if they had any names picked out yet, the singer played coy and said: 'We do have some names but it's a top secret.'
