The former sportsman revealed the exciting news to his friend Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday (24Nov15). The couple's child is due to arrive on Christmas Day (25Dec15).

The former Liberty X star's child won't be the only celebrity baby born around Christmas Day - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's second child is also due on 25 December (15).
The former Liberty X star gave birth to a son on Sunday (09May10).
And Pietersen almost missed the special occasion - he had to jet in to London from Barbados after playing for the England cricket team in the Twenty20 World Cup.
He says, "This is the most amazing experience of my life."

Coleen Nolan missed out on a place in the Dancing on Ice final after the show's judges decided to vote her off the show.
The former singer and Loose Women presenter was forced into a skate-off with investigative reporter Donal McIntyre following the initial routines of the semi-final.
And all five of the show's judges decided to send her home after branding her routine "boring".
McIntyre will now join singer Ray Quinn and former Liberty-X star Jessica Taylor in next week's final.
Speaking after being voted off the show, Nolan said: "It's been amazing working with Torvill and Dean. And I've enjoyed it so much."
Despite having battled through the semi-final in pain having sprained her lower back and rib, the judges showed little sympathy when criticising her skating, suggesting she had only remained in the competition due to the "John Sergeant factor".
"Obviously you're popular with the public, but we're in the semi finals now and we have to put people through who deserve it," judge Jason Gardiner said.

Actress Roxanne Pallett has become the latest contestant voted off Dancing on Ice.
The 26-year-old, who plays Jo Sugden in Emmerdale, took to the ice for the final time after losing out in a skate-off with Blue Peter presenter Zoe Salmon.
"It's been such a treat - an amazing experience," said Pallett after she and partner Daniel Whiston performed their last dance on the ITV1 show.
"I can't believe I made it this far."
Pallett was left in the bottom two after the public vote despite finishing second in the leader board after judge Ruthie Henshall awarded her full marks.
Former X Factor contestant Ray Quinn was picked by former Dancing on Ice champion Kyran Bracken as the man to beat this year and is currently the favourite to win the fourth series of the show.
The other four contestants remaining are Salmon, singer Jessica Taylor, investigative journalist Donal MacIntyre and TV presenter Colleen Nolan.

Former model Melinda Messenger has become the seventh celebrity voted off ITV1's Dancing on Ice after losing out in a skate-off.
Messenger found herself in the bottom two for the fourth time on the talent show and skated for the last time as the judging panel opted to save former Liberty X singer Jessica Taylor and partner Pavel Aubrecht.
Messenger's departure leaves just six celebrities - Coleen Nolan, Donal MacIntyre, Ray Quinn, Roxanne Pallet, Zoe Salmon and Taylor - in the fourth series of the celebrity reality contest.
"It's been absolutely brilliant, I've loved every second," Melinda said after her exit on Sunday night.
"Thanks to [coaches] Jayne [Torvill], Chris [Dean], the team and especially [dance partner] Fred [Palascak] for being so very kind and very patient!"
Judge Nicky Slater said Messenger had "brightened the show" but was "not strong enough against Jessica".
Former X Factor contestant Ray Quinn remains the favourite, following his perfect score of 30 last week with a 29.5 after a dance to Rock Around the Clock.

Actor Jeremy Edwards has become the latest celebrity voted off the new series of Dancing On Ice.
The former Holby City star skated for the last time after the judging panel chose to save ex-rugby league player Ellery Hanley and his partner during the skate-off.
"It's sink or swim in the skate-off and it's quite obvious who sunk tonight," said Jason Gardiner as he cast his vote for Ellery.
And Nicky Slater added: "I think nerves played a part on one performance here."
Following his departure, Jeremy said he had "loved every second" of his time on the ITV1 talent contest.
"Despite what the judges thought, my first skate tonight was the most fun I've ever had. It was fantastic and I loved it," he added.
"If you're going to go out to anyone, go out to Ellery. He's such a top bloke and definitely the best man won tonight, so well done to him."
Edwards' exit was somewhat of a surprise, after Eastenders actor Todd Carty had flown off the rink during an unremarkable dance to Help! by the Beatles.
Fellow contestant Jessica Taylor said she believes Todd could become the Dancing On Ice equivalent of Strictly Come Dancing favourite John Sergeant and remain on the show for longer than his limited abilities might merit.
Former footballer Graeme Le Saux and actress Gemma Bissix have already been voted off the new series of Dancing On Ice.

Completing the female lineup is ex-EastEnders and Hollyoaks actress Gemma Bissix, presenter and model Melinda Messenger, Loose Women host Coleen Nolan and Blue Peter presenter Zoe Salmon.
And the remaining male competitors have been revealed as actor and TV presenter Jeremy Edwards, investigative reporter Donal MacIntyre and children's TV anchor Michael Underwood, who was forced to withdraw from last year's series after suffering a broken ankle.
The 13 participants will aim to emulate the skating feats of previous winners Gaynor Faye, Kyran Bracken and Suzanne Shaw when series four begins on ITV1 at 19:00 GMT on Sunday January 11th.
Presenters Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are back as well as the judging panel of Jason Gardiner, Nicky Slater, Karen Barber, Ruthie Henshall and Robin Cousins.
The new series also includes the return of the Ice Star competition, with ice skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean searching for the most original ice acts in the UK.
The winner will be handed a chance to perform in the Dancing on Ice final and on the Dancing on Ice tour.

Liberty X singer Jessica Taylor has admitted she was stumped when it came to knowing exactly what her cricketer fiance did for a living.
The 26-year-old, who is due to marry KEVIN PIETERSEN, has said that she had no idea he was top English batsman and was even more confused about which position he played.
Speaking to the Sun, the star said: "I had to ask if he was a batter or a bowler - I didn't really know who he was."
She added that she had never been a big fan of the sport before meeting her husband-to-be - despite the pair now being dubbed the Posh and Becks of the cricket world.
The couple, who have been dating since last year are due to tie the knot in September, with former England hero DARREN GOUGH acting as best man.
Other stars expected to attend the wedding are former LIBERTY X bandmates MICHELLE SCOTT-LEE and KELLI YOUNG who will be Jessica's bridesmaids.
Kelli recently revealed that one of the main reasons behind the break-up of the pop group was the members' desire to start having children, with fellow LIBERTY X singer Michelle said to be planning kids in the near future with husband Andy.

Liberty X have announced they will not be recording any more material together.
The five-piece group, formed from 2001 reality show Popstars, made the announcement in a statement to fans on their website.
Although the group received considerably greater chart success than the show's winners, Hear'Say, they have never managed to repeat the feat of their 2002 number one Just a Little.
That track won a Brit award for best single. Since then the group, consisting of Michelle Scott-Lee, Jessica Taylor, Kelli Young, Kevin Simm and Tony Lundon, have had six top ten hits including Being Nobody, Jumpin' and Song 4 Lovers.
Their last release, X, charted at number 46 in the UK singles chart and the group have now decided to call it a day for good.
"We want to let the fans know that Liberty X won't be doing any more recording together. All of us have separate projects we're working on and are excited about," the fivesome said.
"We're still the best of friends and we'll still be doing all the dates on the current club tour," their statement added.
