Jamie, who shares sons Charles, 17, and Beau, 13, with his ex-wife Louise, was reportedly ‘thrilled’ when he and Frida, who has four sons with hedge fund manager Jonathan Lourie, 58, discovered they were expecting earlier this year.

It was previously reported that Louise was ‘quite shocked’ about Jamie’s decision to marry Frida.

The newlyweds tied the knot at Chelsea Registry Office on October 18, five months after they announced they were expecting a baby. 

And the whirlwind nuptials wee said to have come as quite a surprise to Louise as she reportedly didn’t know they were engaged. 

A source told OK!: ‘Louise was quite shocked, she only found out very recently. They kept it very under wraps, nobody even knew they were engaged.   

‘It’s very mixed emotions for her, it’s difficult because she’s spoken quite openly about her regret, she’s blamed Strictly quite a lot but, unfortunately, you can’t turn the clock back.’ 

‘He wanted his sons to walk in with him but it was a very small affair. She only knew because the boys were there.’

The insider added Louise wasn’t ‘given a lot of time to prepare’ because ‘Jamie wanted to be married before the baby was born’.
