Blue singer turned EastEnders actor Lee Ryan has announced that he is going to be a dad for the third time.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, the singer confirmed he and his girlfriend Verity Paris are having a baby girl – their first child together – who should arrive in June.

"I'm so excited," Lee said. "I love being a dad; there is nothing better than that. It's the most amazing thing in the world.

"We have a better quality of life out here (in new home Costa del Sol) to bring up a child. I was in London for 20 years and I had a lot of fun but as I get older I feel like I just want to put my slippers on.

"I love going for walks along the ocean front and breathing in the sea air. For us, this is new lease of life. We took out Spanish residency before Brexit and we will be having Spanish lessons and our daughter will have dual passports."

Verity added that: "I'm very comfortable moving into the next stage of my life with someone who is so paternal and good with children."
