Gary Barlow is to be a father for the fourth time.
The Take That star announced the news on Twitter, saying: "My wife and I are expecting our 4th child."
The news brought congratulations from friends and he added: "What a lovely bunch you are. Thank you for all your kind messages. We are a very excited family."
The Sun said that the 41-year-old singer and X Factor judge was "beaming constantly" after his wife Dawn, a 42-year-old dancer, had her three-month pregnancy scan.
The couple married in 2000 after getting together when Dawn worked on Take That's Nobody Else tour in 1995, and already have three children - Daniel, 11, Emily, nine, and Daisy, three.
