McFly star Tom Fletcher is to become a father for the third time.

The singer and guitarist announced that his wife Giovanna is pregnant with their third child in a fun video, the couple’s favoured way of sharing such news.

They and their two sons Buzz, three, and Buddy, two, are seen making a small snowman together before adorning it with a copy of a baby scan.

Along with the video, Fletcher wrote on Instagram: “We thought we’d make it a trilogy. Baby 3 coming September! Couldn’t be happier. @mrsgifletcher.”

Giovanna, a blogger and author, said in her own post: “Roll on September.”

The music star, 32, has become known for creating videos to reveal happy news and the latest follows his previous two baby announcements.

In 2013, he and Giovanna carved pumpkins in a Halloween-themed clip to reveal they were expecting their first child.

The pair did the same again in 2015 to announce Giovanna’s second pregnancy in a video game-themed piece.

The film showed the Fletchers playing on an old games console with Buzz before a mystery Player 2 option popped up on a screen.

Fletcher, who rose to fame in McFly and who has also carved out a successful career as a children’s book author, married childhood sweetheart Giovanna in 2012.
