The baby will be Jake’s first child, while Sophie is already a mum to Freddie, six, from a previous relationship. 

The baby bump shots come after it was reported that Jake will be unable to do any exercise for six months after rupturing his pectoral muscle on SAS: Who Dares Wins. 

The TV personality was said to have been rushed to London from Scotland during filming for a gruelling four-hour operation in November. 

A source told The Sun at the time: ‘Jake ended up being in surgery for five hours on Monday as the injury he sustained on SAS was worse than thought.’

They added: ‘Jake won’t be doing any physical sport or exercise for up to six months and will have to wear a sling for at least two months.  

‘It’s a devastating blow for him. In his heart he knew he wouldn’t be able to return to SAS but having been told by the doctors the extent of the injury it’s really hit home.’

The source claimed that Jake’s pectoral muscle had ‘ruptured’ and it had to be ‘glued back’ to his bone.   

MailOnline contacted representatives for both Jake Quickenden and SAS: Who Dares Wins for comment at the time.
