Speaking to Hello! magazine about the couple’s pregnancy and engagement, Chyna said: "After the baby news, we were on cloud nine – and now this. It still doesn't feel real."
Neil added: "I'd already planned to ask Chyna to marry me before we knew she was pregnant. Then we found out and I was like: 'Oh, this is brilliant, everything is coming together’."
The couple took to Instagram to announce their pregnancy. Neil posted a photo of himself and Chyna embracing, captioning it: "Excitement is an understatement," followed by a smiling face emoji.
His ex-wife, Katya, 33, was one of his many followers who congratulated the couple on their exciting news.
Reposting Neil’s news on her Instagram story, she wrote: "So happy for these two! @mr_njonesoffiicial You deserve all the happiness".
The former couple were married for five years before deciding to split in August 2019, after being together for 11 years.
Despite their breakup, they continued to work on Strictly Come Dancing together and have maintained an amicable relationship.
Katya and Neil announced their split in a joint statement on their social media pages, which read: "Hi everyone, as our fans and loyal supporters you are really important to us and so we wanted to let you know some news. After 11 years, we have made the mutual decision to separate."
It was believed that their breakup was caused by Katya kissing Seann Walsh while she was in a relationship with Neil, however, a spokesperson said: "Many people make such a decision to separate when they realise that their relationship has become more of a friendship. They remain the very best of friends and will continue to dance together."
