Baby on the way for Sophie and Jamie

Model Sophie Dahl is expecting a baby with her musician husband Jamie Cullum, a spokesman for the couple confirmed.

A statement said: "In response to a number of recent inquiries, Jamie Cullum and Sophie Dahl are delighted to confirm that Sophie is four months pregnant.

"There will be no further comment at this time."

Dahl, granddaughter of children's author Roald Dahl, married jazz musician Cullum at the start of the year.

The couple celebrated their wedding at a country hotel in January after keeping the event secret.

Cullum (31) and Dahl (32) had a blessing at the Lime Wood Hotel, set in the New Forest National Park, on England's south coast.
