Jordan announced his engagement to mother-of-two Naomi in January 2020 when he proposed to her during a trip to the Maldives after nearly five years together.
Speaking to The Sun, he said, “Nay likes the idea that Mimi is a little flower girl and Cas a pageboy.
“It will be really nice to have them at the wedding because not everyone has kids at the wedding, they usually come after that. I’m super excited.

‘Everyone in Diversity had children after they got married, we did it the other way around.’
Last January, Jordan revealed that he had asked Naomi the question in the Maldives, six months after they welcomed their second child, Mimi.
In a sweet Instagram post, the dancer and his partner – who also share Cassius – cuddled up at the four-star SAii Lagoon resort as the brunette flashed her diamond engagement ring.

The couple were finally one step closer to marriage after Jordan admitted his marriage proposal had failed twice.
He told The Sun in April 2019: “At this rate, we’re going to have 13 kids and we’re not getting married. I was about to propose when I found out she was pregnant with Cass.
“So I thought, ‘Okay, I’ll wait until he’s a little older and then I’ll take Naomi and surprise her with a proposal’.

“When I thought about doing it again this year, I found out she was pregnant again. Now she’s convinced we’re not getting married.’
Jordan and Naomi met at the famous Sugar Hut nightclub in 2013, but started dating two years later.
In January 2018, the couple revealed they were expecting their first child together, and the Essex beauty admitted she’d taken ‘nine pregnancy tests’ out of shock.

She told OK! at the time, “I wanted to be sure, so I went out and bought eight more tests. I sat with them on the bathroom floor in front of me and stared at them in disbelief.
“We’ve always said we wanted kids together, we just didn’t think it would happen so soon. But we are overjoyed!’
Eight months after welcoming Cass, the couple announced they were pregnant with their second baby, and their daughter arrived in July.
