Jordan proudly shared a black and white photo of Naomi rocking little Atreus after birth before the couple both posted a sweet video.
The video showed Naomi showing off her belly before they went to the hospital for her C-section.
The couple’s two older children were then seen excitedly meeting their little brother in the adorable footage captioned “Hello World.”
The couple’s pregnancy announcement came shortly after Jordan revealed he had a vasectomy by posting a lighthearted video of him stumbling back to his car after the procedure.
Naomi recently revealed she was worried she might have to have another C-section when she gave birth.
She took to her Instagram to discuss her concerns after a trip to the hospital – saying her latest surgery, which saw her welcome Mimi via C-section, “caused a lot of trauma.”
In her post, she shared how she felt “vulnerable and exposed” after the procedure on her last child – and the “shocking aftercare” at the hospital left her seriously ill with sepsis.
She wrote: ‘Sorry guys, I was out most of the hospital yesterday for my scan and a long appointment related to my birth.
“Tbh I feel exhausted and it has made me so unsure of what to do next given all the risks. I didn’t have a great time having my C-section with Mimi and it really scared me so I was hoping to avoid it and have another V birth but now I’m not so sure.
‘Do I have specialists in VBACs here? VBAC Doulas? Private midwives etc? I don’t have a personal midwife at this hospital like I had with the other 2 so I feel so lost and I don’t know who to talk to.
“But I really doubt myself and the thought of another C-section gives me a lot of anxiety.”

The couple announced they were expecting their third child together in October, two months after they tied the knot.
The Diversity dancer took to Instagram and shared an adorable shot with Naomi outside their house as their kids Cassius and Mimi rocked her baby bump.
He captioned the shot, “TRICK OR TREAT! We are expecting 2 (more) tiny feet! baby number 3 due in April 2023.’
The dancer also shared a sweet selfie of the couple with their ultrasound photo as he wrote, “The Banjo family is growing even more❤️ Baby number 3 is on the way.”
The pair were immediately inundated with messages from their famous friends, with the likes of Oti Mabuse, Helen Flanagan and Danielle Armstrong passing on their congratulations.
It comes after the couple tied the knot in August, a year later than planned due to the pandemic.
Jordan announced his engagement to mother-of-two Naomi in January 2020 when he proposed during a trip to the Maldives after nearly five years together.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: “I don’t like the idea of Mimi being a little flower girl and Cas being a pageboy at all.
“It will be really nice to have them at the wedding because not everyone has kids at the wedding, normally they come after that. I’m super excited.
‘At Diversity everyone had children after getting married, we did it the other way around.’
