Brian McFadden expecting baby with fiancée after two tragic miscarriages

Brian McFadden is expecting a baby with his fiancée Danielle Parkinson after they suffered two tragic miscarriages.

The former Westlife star, 40, has confirmed he’s going to be a dad again as his partner is pregnant.

He told OK! magazine the new addition to the family is due in May.

Brian said: “We’re 15 weeks along now,” while Dani, 39, added: “We’re due on 14 May. But they said normally with your first baby it can be early.”

In the interview, the couple revealed they had been trying for a baby for two years and had turned to IVF treatment.

They suffered two devastating miscarriages before finally passing the three-month mark with their “miracle” baby.

Danielle said: “It does [feel like a miracle] but I feel awful saying that, as I’ve had so many messages on Instagram.

“The IVF community is so lovely and I’ve heard real traumatic stories from people who have been trying for 10 years, people who have had eight-plus miscarriages, so I feel we got lucky on our third attempt.”

Brian is already dad to two daughters, Molly, 19, and Lilly-Sue, 17, from his marriage to Kerry Katona.

This will be Danielle’s first child.

Speaking to OK, the couple credited Mike Tindall and Zara Phillips with putting them in touch with a nutritionist who they claim helped them conceive.

The Irish pop star explained: “Mike and Zara put us in touch with Simone the nutritionist who got us prepared for this time.

“After we had the miscarriage, we sat with them and talked. This woman would put us on a certain diet, and Mike guaranteed it would work. He was completely rig.”

Kerry and Brian tied the knot in 2002, before separating in 2004, and finally divorcing in 2006
