The couple’s latest addition, Remie, is their fourth child together.

Johnathan and Samantha already have three daughters – Frankie, Charlie and Lillie.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph last year, Johnathan shared his shock at discovering his wife was pregnant for the fourth time.

“There is no way we were expecting this. All three of my girls were born naturally and this happened naturally,” he told the publication.

Prior to falling pregnant with their first daughter Frankie, who is now five, Samantha endured three failed rounds of IVF.

“[Samantha] offered to leave me after our third attempt at IVF failed. I just told her I loved her and I would never leave her, even if I would never be a dad,” Johnathan admitted.

“My heart broke for her.”
