Reality TV star Ollie Locke has revealed that he and his husband Gareth Locke are set to become fathers for the first time.
The Made in Chelsea star announced the news to his followers on Instagram as he shared a heartwarming montage that confirmed that the newly-weds will become parents via surrogacy.
The 34-year-old captioned the first post: "And just like that… it was the beginning!"
Ollie then went on to share another video with a further explanation about their journey to conceiving a child.
Captioning the sweet video, he wrote: "I'm not crying, you’re crying! This is the very moment our eggs were fertilised… in 9 months time, after being looked after by a very wonderful human we hope to be able to show you what he or she looks like and how much love we have to give!"
The happy couple announced the news after travelling to America to start IVF treatment.
"I cannot wait to meet you little one and to be your daddy with @garethplocke Xx thank you @advancedfertilitycentercancun for being so wonderful Xx" he added.
Last month, the recently married couple temporarily relocated to America for the IVF treatment required for them to achieve their dreams of becoming fathers.
The reality TV stars, whose wedding was filmed for the last season of Made in Chelsea, were exempt from current coronavirus travel restrictions as they received permission to fly on medical grounds.

In a joint statement, the expectant fathers said: “The last year has been super tough on everyone and the joint effort of everyone has made a huge effect on all of us collectively getting past the restrictions and difficulties of Covid-19.
“Respectfully and excitingly we wanted to post and make an announcement that we have travelled across the world and under medical exemptions to begin our IVF and surrogacy journey.
“We know that you have loved watching our journey so far and we can’t wait to take you on the new adventure with us on the other side of the world, and with any luck we might have some very exciting good news for you in the coming months!"
Ollie had teased he had happy news earlier this week when he posted a mysterious tweet.
The happy couple married in an intimate ceremony last year.
Writing to his 561.2 thousand followers on Twitter, he said: "It’s the biggest day of my life tomorrow.. not work, not closing on a house, not a call from an agent! Something that means more than anything in the world! You might already know, but having a gin and tonic, waiting for something quite exceptional!! Xxxx"
Despite Coronavirus preventing a lot of couples tying the knot, the Made in Chelsea star and his partner decided to go ahead and get married in a small, intimate ceremony in London's Natural History Museum last year.
The couple, who already shared the same surname prior to marrying, exchanged vows in the candle lit venue with just 13 guests in attendance.
Ollie's Made in Chelsea co-stars Binky Felstead and Olivia Bentley were two of the lucky few to make the guest list and looked beautiful as the groom's bridesmaids
