Harry Redknapp has seemingly confirmed the news that his son Jamie Redknapp and his model girlfriend Frida Andersson are expecting their first child together. The 74-year-old said he was looking forward to welcoming another grandchild into the family.
Harry, who is already a grandfather of five, said there are “exciting times” ahead.
He made his comments after it was reported that Jamie and Frida are set to become parents again.
Former footballer Jamie, who shares sons Charley, 16, and Beau, 12, with his ex-wife Louise Redknapp, will become a father for the third time.
Meanwhile, Frida shares four children with her ex-husband Jonathan Lourie.
Speaking about the baby news to Julia Hartley-Brewer on talkRADIO today, Harry said: “Yeah I’m really pleased, it’s good news.
“So looking forward to that and it’s exciting times,” he added.
The doting grandad continued: “I enjoy spending time with the grandkids, I love it, I really do.
“Going to watch them play football and sport… I love being there and turning up and watching the kids and taking them to football on Saturday.”
Jamie and Frida, who have reportedly been dating for 18 months, have not officially commented on the baby news yet.
However, the 37-year-old responded to congratulatory messages from her followers on Instagram, seeming to confirm the news.
“Congratulations on your new baby,” one user wrote on her latest post.
She replied with a praying emoji.
