Gary Barlow's girl joy
Take That star Gary Barlow and his wife Dawn are having a baby girl
Gary Barlow is having a girl.
The Take That singer and his dancer wife Dawn - who already have two children, eight-year-old Daniel and six-year-old Emily - have revealed the sex of the baby to family and friends.
A source said: "Daniel and Emily have been blabbing to anyone who will listen that mummy and daddy are having a little girl. It was meant to be a secret - but the cat is well and truly out of the bag now."
The new addition to the Barlow clan is due four weeks, but Gary is expecting an early arrival.
Gary said: "We are on emergency over Christmas. We're due on January 17 - but both of our other children were really early."
A new daughter would be an excellent Christmas gift for Gary, who can't remember the last time he received a present he really liked.
He said: "I suppose I am hard to buy for but I haven't had a decent present in years. The kids always make cards in school for us, which is great, but then I just get the usual stuff."
