Ollie revealed they were expecting twins last month in a post that read: ‘We are beyond delighted to finally be able to share the news that we are expecting twin baby Locke-Locke’s into the world this summer!
‘You have all been so wonderful throughout the last 3 years of us trying to have a family and we promise to share every step of this adventure with you all.
‘For all those on their own journey to become parents we are with you and sending all the baby dust your way!
‘Thank you to our sensational surrogate @bex7ward for being the most incredible human, the love we have for you and your family is just another level! Xx.’
It came after Ollie and Gareth spoke out in December after their surrogate suffered a miscarriage.
It happened just days after Ollie and Gareth had announced that their surrogate had fallen pregnant after their third round of IVF, after the couple suffered a miscarriage at six weeks pregnant in 2021 during their first round of fertility treatment.
The couple shared the heart-breaking news, and Ollie admitted it had left him feeling ‘demasculated’ that they have been unable to conceive so far.
Speaking on the Bali special of E4 show MIC, Ollie said: ‘We just can’t believe it’s happened again.’

Gareth added: ‘This is our third time. Every time it’s like … “Oh well next time surely it’s going to happen.”
‘It feels like every time you’re going to have to redo it, it just feels like it’s a bit, a step further away.
‘Obviously we’re in a very fortunate position, we can go again. But you know it’s not, it’s not easy.’
Ollie admitted he felt ’embarrassed that he and Gareth were yet to have a baby together.
Speaking to his co-stars Emily Blackwell and Miles Nazaire on the show, Ollie said: ‘Can I tell you something really savage as well? And this is a weird, personal thing, and I know this isn’t how I should be feeling.
‘And I know this, but I get so embarrassed. I haven’t even called my dad yet. Because I’m embarrassed by …
‘I’ll tell you the reason is, weirdly, I feel demasculated. And I know that’s really silly, but this is me talking frankly to you guys, and I know I shouldn’t feel like that, but I feel embarrassed that it hasn’t worked for us.
‘And it’s so stupid, but I’m just waiting for long enough, for someone to tell dad, so I don’t have to.
‘But embarrassment is such a weird emotion, to have when it’s actually like, that should be the last of your thoughts.’
In December 2021, Ollie and Gareth told how their surrogate had tragically miscarried at six weeks.
In July 2021, the couple – who married in November 2020 – told how their first IVF attempt had been unsuccessful.

Ollie said at the time: ‘I think our expectations were very high and we really thought it was going to work, but nature’s nature and we can’t do anything about it.
‘We have to think that it wasn’t meant to be and we are going to go ahead in a month or so and do it again. We’re optimistic.
‘Sometimes it just doesn’t work. But that’s not going to stop us from trying again and again.’
The miscarriage came after their first attempt to have a baby via IVF was unsuccessful in 2021.
