The Dancing On Ice champion, 32, is expecting a baby with his girlfriend Sophie Church.
Who is Jake Quickenden's girlfriend Sophie Church?
Sophie is a 27-year-old therapist.
Like Jake, she has also appeared on TV.
In 2018 Sophie proved very popular on E4 show Celebs Go Dating – when both Alik Alfus and Eyal Booker wanted to date her after meeting her at a mixer.
Meanwhile, this will be Jake's first child as Sophie is already mum to her son Freddie, six, from a previous relationship.
How long have Jake Quickenden and Sophie Church been dating?
The Sun Online first revealed they were dating in June 2018.
At the time a source close to Jake said: “It wasn’t working with Darylle – she wanted to make their relationship official and Jake just wasn’t ready for at the moment.
“He hasn’t long been single following the end of his engagement with Danielle and right now is enjoying being back on the dating scene.
“Sophie has definitely caught his eye; they’ve been spending quality time together and Jake loves the fact she isn't in the celebrity world."
Their romance followed his fling with Love Island star Darylle after he broke off his engagement to Danielle Fogarty.
When is Jake and Sophie's baby due?
The couple revealed their happy news in September 2020.
With this in mind, and given that couples usually wait three months before announcing a pregnancy, the baby could be born in March 2020.

"It's something I've always wanted to do and I feel completely ready for it."
Sophie added: "Jake will be such an amazing dad.
