Howard Donald announces Take That baby news

The singer is about to become a dad for the third time


Take That’s Howard Donald has announced he’s about to become a dad for the third time. The 47-year-old married Katie Halil in January and they’re expecting their first child together in early January 2016.


“I have some amazing news to share with you all…..,” Howard tweeted. “Katie and I are having a baby! So proud of my beautiful wife and can’t wait for the newest member of our family to arrive.

“Thank you for all your wonderful messages. The baby is due early Jan. Boy or girl? Guesses on a postcard please”


Howard first met illustrator Katie when the band filmed a Marks & Spencer advert for Christmas in 2008 – but it was two years before they started dating.

The singer has two daughters Grace, 16, from his previous relationship with Victoria Piddington and Lola, 10, from his previous relationship with Marie-Christine Musswessels.

On his Twitter page, Howard often posts selfies with strange objects balancing on his head – no, we don’t know why. But the dad-to-be has promised a special baby edition of his popular posts in January…

Congratulations both!
