MADE In Chelsea star Ollie Locke revealed he's having a baby with his husband with the help of a "heavenly surrogate".
The reality star – who tied the knot in November last year – announced he has organised a surrogate with a mystery woman in the United States.
Ollie says they will begin the process as soon as international travel is allowed again.
Sharing fan art of Disney princes with a baby, he captioned the pic: "So I think it might be the time to tell you all! Gareth and I are very much on our surrogacy journey to become fathers.
"We are very nearly there, with the help of the best person we could ever ask for! (you know who you are, our heavenly surrogate)
"After many months of planning, legal formalities (I can’t believe it has been so difficult) and building the next stage to our home, we will soon be travelling to America (as soon as we can, sadly fertility is not essential travel!!) With our surrogate and hopefully become pregnant.
"Whatever happens and through the ups and downs, we are going to take you all on our journey.
"We have waited for a long time to share this news, but with the help of the heavenly @sophieberesiner interviewing us for Sunday Times Style @theststyle out today we felt it was a hugely important discussion telling our story of how a couple that love each other, and desperately wants a family are becoming parents!
"Through my own social media, Made In Chelsea and (I’m sure) other TV platforms we will all go through this together and we couldn’t be more excited to become parents. @garethplocke Xx"
Ollie and Gareth got married in a lavish two-day wedding, with the ceremony at the Natural History Museum.
The ceremony, which is the second wedding to be held at the museum and the first same-sex marriage, saw thousands of candles and white flowers laid out for the romantic moment.
As guests donned masks for the magic moment, bridesmaid Binky Felstead gave an emotional speech at the following reception.
Other guests, including Lydia Bright, Pearl Mackie and Tiffany Watson, joined the couple for a wedding breakfast at Chelsea's Bluebird restaurant.
Overjoyed to be married after 12 years of dating, Gareth concluded: "It was something I will remember for the rest of my life and it was perfect."
Ollie has previously opened up about wanting a baby with his other half.
Speaking in December, he told HELLO! magazine: "As soon as you say 'I do', it's the start of a great adventure, and this is something that we have wanted for a long time.
"Now let's see if we can create a family – that's the next stage."
