Marco Pierre White Jr is expecting his first baby, he has announced on Instagram.
The Big Brother star casually dropped the bombshell amidst a series of videos of him mouthing along to rap music in the car and shirtless selfies.
The 24-year-old posted a picture of a scan, which was taken on 12 June 2019, with the caption: ‘Going to be a daddy to a little girl.’
Marco followed up by adding: ‘My father’s first grandchild.’
The name of the mother was scribbled off the scan.
The heavily tattooed reality star, whose dad is chef Marco Pierre White, was last linked to a woman named Ellen, who he proposed to last May.
He said on Instagram: ‘Got back with one of my exes, not Francesca, and I’m about to propose to her with a 1.5 carat Asprey diamond from 1920. Hope it goes well, wish me luck!’
After live-streaming the proposal, Ellen said yes, and Marco explained: ‘So I just got engaged to someone I was with for two and a half years.
‘I’m really happy she said “Yes”, we’ve always been really close to each other, I know she’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life with.’
Before this, Marco was in a relationship with Francesca Suter – and he hasn’t had much luck before that.
The wild child was engaged three times in two years; before proposing to Ellen, he popped the question to Jessica Hydeleman in March 2016 via a Whatsapp message, but they split up soon afterwards.
Then, just weeks after that, he became engaged to Kim Melville-Smith, who was his fiancee at the time he entered Big Brother.
Marco claimed that he had an open relationship with Kim, and went on to have a graphic fling with housemate Laura Carter – which was a tad awkward considering Kim tweeted: ‘Fyi I said #hallpass NOT open relationship.’
His affair with Laura ended their relationship, and Marco had a string of flings before meeting Francesca and getting her initials tattooed on his face.
Just last month, Marco was fined £1,328.05 after doing a runner from a cafe over a £27 bill.
