“For anyone who has lost hope right now, I’ve been there and I’m thinking of you, and I hope one day soon, you get your miracle.”

Joel posted the same photo to his social media accounts and said the news was “world changing”.

“Our dreams have come true. Brit and I are grateful to be able to share we have a little one coming into the world,” he wrote.

“What I have worked out through this process is that women are amazing and my wife is a superwoman. In a journey that hasn’t been easy, we have found a way, through great support and Brit staying positive.

“To couples, who are trying, have tried or can’t have a baby for some unfair reason, we see you and are sending love and positive energy your way.

“We can’t wait to meet you Baby Selwood, you will be very loved.”
