She went on to reveal the couple welcomed their son via surrogate.

"As with Coco, he is biologically ours, but born via our same incredible surrogate.

Ayda and Robbie had not revealed that they were expecting a fourth child.

The pair's daughter Coco, one, was also kept a secret until her arrival last September. Following her birth, Ayda explained on Instagram that she and Robbie endured a "long and difficult path" trying for another baby.

She wrote: "Family comes in all forms, and this little lady, who is biologically ours, was carried by an incredible surrogate mother, to whom we will be eternally grateful."

The couple married in Los Angeles in 2010 after dating for four years. They also share a daughter Theodora (Teddy), seven, and son Charlton (Charlie), five.
