Louise Redknapp says Jamie ‘wanted another baby’ when she was on Strictly
Louise Redknapp has revealed that her ex-husband Jamie was reportedly desperate for another baby while she was on Strictly Come Dancing.
The ex-professional footballer is now expecting his first child with model girlfriend Frida Andersson, due in November.
But back in 2016 when the 47-year-old was still with Louise, the singer shared that the dad-of-two had been wanting another kid for a while, Louise said.
Speaking The Sun, Louise said: “Two of [Kevin's] previous partners have got pregnant after the show. Bring that one on.
“Maybe he’s the good luck charm I need to get that girl I really want.
“Jamie would love another baby, I’m not getting any younger so we’ll see what happens. But I’m in Strictly shape now so we’ll see.”
The former couple are parents to two children together, Charlie, 16 and 12-year-old Beau.
It was revealed this week that Jamie was expecting a baby with his girlfriend, who he has been dating for the past 18 months.
37-year-old Frida already has four children from her marriage to US hedge fun manager Jonathan Lourie.
A source told The Sun: “Jamie and Frida are absolutely delighted.
Louise Redknapp 'knocked sideways' by Jamie Redknapp's shock baby joy
“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. 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.”
Louise and Jamie split in 2017 after 19 years of marriage, just one year after she appeared on Strictly.

This week it was reported that Louise had been “knocked sideways” by the news that Jamie was expecting another baby.
Supposedly the singer had not been informed by Jamie himself and had only found out the news through family members.
A source claimed to OK! said: "Louise was knocked sideways by the news. Jamie didn't tell her directly, she found out through family.
"She's happy for them both and says life goes on but at the same time, she's shocked by how quickly he's moved on and that he'll be a new dad again at nearly 50. A new baby is always a joy but she is concerned at how it will impact their family dynamic."
