Saturdays star Una Foden can expect to sleep easier with the knowledge that her dreamy husband Ben intends to take on all the nappy changing duties when their second tot arrives next month.

The Voice judge’s husband Ben dished that he is just as content changing nappies as he is on the rugby pitch.

"In this day and age women can just as easily be the main breadwinner as men.

“Why should they have to give up their careers when they have children?” the English rugby player told The Sunday Times.

"Being rugby players we are used to sweat, spit, blood and rolling around in the mud, so no one has a problem about getting their hands dirty changing nappies," he said.

The rugby star and dad to two-year-old Aoife-Belle is promoting a new initiative encouraging fathers to play a larger role in their children’s lives.

Meanwhile the couple are getting ready for the arrival of their son in February.

Last week, Tipperary-bred Una appeared in Hello! Magazine celebrating her baby shower with fellow bandmates Frankie Bridge, Rochelle Humes, Mollie King and Vanessa White.

"Ben was a huge baby - over 11lb - but although we've been told our son's a good size, we're not anticipating he'll be a whopper like his dad," she said speaking to Hello!

"Aoife was just under 8lb and we think our boy will be around the same. I know I'm very lucky to have had such an easy time of it on both occasions."
