Talking about the baby news in a new interview with Hello! magazine, the former Strictly contestant shared his excitement about becoming a father for the third time. 

While Verity praised Lee for being ‘paternal’ and ‘good with children’, adding that it is ‘very reassuring’ that the star loves family life.

Lee told the publication: ‘I’m so excited. I love being a dad; there is nothing better than that. It’s the most amazing thing in the world.’

To which Verity added: ‘I’m very comfortable moving into the next stage of my life with someone who is so paternal and good with children. Lee is so hands on and to me it is very reassuring to be with someone that loves family life.’

Lee sweetly revealed that he wants his baby daughter to sing and play both the piano and saxophone as music is a ‘huge part’ of his relationship with Verity.

He added: ‘We sit in the hot tub on our roof terrace, singing at the top of our voices. I don’t know what the neighbours make of it. I can’t wait to teach this little baby how to sing and play the piano and saxophone. I sing to the bump too.’ 

The couple moved to a beachfront apartment in the Costa del Sol last year with the duo admitting that they now have a ‘better quality of life’ and ‘new lease of life’. 

Lee admitted that after 20 years of living in London he now loves scenic walks along the coastline and ‘sea air’.

The singer revealed that they took out Spanish residency before Brexit and that their daughter will have ‘dual passports’ with the couple excited for her to speak Spanish.

It comes after Lee confirmed he is set to become a father for the third time as he stepped out with his pregnant girlfriend in Malaga, Spain, earlier this week. 

Lee placed a protective arm around Verity as she covered her blossoming baby bump in a mid-length black dress, which she wore with a white linen shirt tied over the top.   

A source told The Sun at the time: ‘They couldn’t be happier. Pals have joked it will mean Lee will have some time to chat to someone who understands him.

‘It’s early days but they’re excited.’ 

Lee and Verity, whose real name is Verity Morley, were first linked back in January 2020 before enjoying a loved-up holiday together in February last year.

Verity is an Ariana Grande impersonator who starred on the X Factor in 2009.

Lee, who was known as somewhat as a Lothario on Celebrity Big Brother and Celebs Go Dating, previously reflected on his failed relationships and low points of his life. 

The dad told the Daily Mail in 2019: ‘I shouldn’t have lost the family life I had with my ex-fiance, Sammi, and our little boy, Rayn. He’s ten now and we’re really close again.

‘But I neglected the relationship so it’s only relatively recently that he’s been able to see functioning co-parenting, something my mum and dad never achieved,’ they split when Lee was six.

He added: ‘I don’t know if I’ll settle down for a long time. I love the early months of a relationship and then I start concentrating on my career again.

‘I also have a daughter, Bluebell, who’s 11. These are key ages for my kids so I’m working as hard as I know how to make memories with each of them that will last. They’re my priority for the next few years.’

He also chatted about his career, saying: ‘I don’t have any regrets about the mistakes I’ve made because they’ve shown me that something good can come out of something bad. 

‘For example, in Blue’s heyday, I didn’t pay attention to financial matters, preferring to listen to other people who took advantage of me. [The band’s company, Blueworld Ltd, went into liquidation in 2013; two years later Lee declared himself bankrupt].

‘I blame myself for that careless attitude; a legacy from my school years when I thought I knew it all. I’m much more astute these days.’

Last summer, Lee hit back at trolls who criticised him for gaining weight while in lockdown during an emotive Instagram video.  

The star had been enjoying a rooftop singing session with his mother and Verity at his home, showing his vocal abilities to Spandau Ballet’s Gold.

But the singer was forced to go inside and take a moment after trolls started sending him abusive messages about his appearance.

Talking to the camera, the handsome chap said: ‘So listen right, a few people are on at me for having fun and saying, “Oh s***, you look like you’ve put on a bit of timber”.

‘Who ain’t in this lockdown? No one is going out and doing their usual routine. Be kind to people, we will all lose it eventually.

‘Be happy, be with your family and be kind and loving to people. Especially during this time.’
