England and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, 19, is to become a dad. His ex-girlfriend Lauren Neal, 22, is pregnant and the baby is due in August.
Footballer Jack was said to be shocked but delighted when he discovered that Lauren was pregnant.
“They’re both delighted. It took some time to sink in, as it wasn’t exactly planned. Although Jack and Lauren are not technically together at the moment, they’re still close. He has vowed to stand by her and support her. Who knows, it might bring them back together officially,” a close friend reportedly told The Sun.
The couple split earlier this year, after finding the pressure of Jack’s football career too much to bear.
