YOUTUBE star Jim Chapman is set to become a father for a second time.
The 35-year-old influencer and his wife Sarah Tarleton announced their happy news today, 17 months after having their daughter Margot.
Jim shared a video of himself and Sarah baking cookies with Margot, which read ‘big sister’.
He captioned the post: “Margot’s going to be a big sister! We are so happy and excited to have a little boy coming this summer 💕.”
Their famous pals rushed to comment on it, with fellow YouTube star Zoe Sugg writing: “Congratulations guys! 🥰 Margot is going to be the best big sister xx”
Bake Off’s Ruby Bhogal commented: “So excited for you all 🥰🥰🥰 (and me – means I’ll have two little mini sous chefs in no time).”
While Union J star Josh Cuthbert said: “Can’t wait to meet the little man.”
Jim and Sarah tied the knot last year at a Santa Barbara Courthouse before throwing a wedding party in Spain with their nearest and dearest.
The social media star split from ex-wife Tanya Burr in 2019 after four years of marriage and 12 years together.
Sixteen months later he announced he was due to marry Sarah and they welcomed their first child in September 2021.
Speaking previously about becoming a father, Jim wrote in Grazia that he wanted to be a dad “like his mum” as he reflected on his own childhood.
He explained: : “My own dad is something of a cautionary tale when it comes to father figures. He was abusive, cruel and unpredictable.
“I don’t believe he was a bad man. He was, like all of us, a product of his environment, combined with his mindset, outlook and coping strategies. Unfortunately, in him, these factors made for the cocktail of a calculating, violent man.
“With all that said, I still look back at my childhood with joy and that’s because of my mum. She was (and continues to be) the antithesis of my dad.
“She was all the adjectives that sound boring but the ones that I believe, right down to the heart of me, are the best ones when it comes to being a parent; Consistent, dependable, predictable, loyal.”
