Ollie Locke and his husband Gareth are expecting twins via surrogate.
The 35-year-old 'Made In Chelsea' star confirmed the happy news in a post on Instagram revealing the couple's double bundle of joy will be arriving this summer putting an end to their heartbreaking three-year journey towards parenthood.
In his message, Ollie wrote: "We are beyond delighted to finally be able to share the news that we are expecting twin baby Locke-Locke’s into the world this summer!
"You have all been so wonderful throughout the last 3 years of us trying to have a family and we promise to share every step of this adventure with you all. For all those on their own journey to become parents we are with you and sending all the baby dust your way!
"Thank you to our sensational surrogate @bex7ward for being the most incredible human, the love we have for you and your family is just another level! Xx."
It comes just months after Ollie revealed back in December the couple had experienced an agonising setback as their surrogate had suffered a miscarriage.
Ollie admitted it left him feeling "demasculated" that they were unable to conceive. Speaking on the Bali special of his E4 show, Ollie said: "We just can't believe it's happened again." Gareth added: "This is our third time. Every time it's like ... 'Oh well next time surely it's going to happen.' "It feels like every time you're going to have to redo it, it just feels like it's a bit, a step further away. "Obviously we're in a very fortunate position, we can go again. But you know it's not, it's not easy."
Ollie added to his co-stars Emily Blackwell and Miles Nazaire: "Can I tell you something really savage as well? And this is a weird, personal thing, and I know this isn't how I should be feeling. And I know this, but I get so embarrassed. I haven't even called my dad yet. Because I'm embarrassed by ...
"I'll tell you the reason is, weirdly, I feel demasculated. And I know that's really silly, but this is me talking frankly to you guys, and I know I shouldn't feel like that, but I feel embarrassed that it hasn't worked for us.
"And it's so stupid, but I'm just waiting for long enough, for someone to tell dad, so I don't have to. But embarrassment is such a weird emotion, to have when it's actually like, that should be the last of your thoughts."
