Harry Redknapp has said he is "pleased" to be welcoming another grandchild as he confirmed son Jamie Redknapp is expecting a baby with his girlfriend Frida Andersson.

It was reported by The Sun last week that 47-year-old ex-footballer Jamie's partner Andersson, 37, was three months pregnant.

Neither formally announced the news publicly but former football manager Harry, 74, has now confirmed the pregnancy.

Questioned whether being a grandfather becomes "less exciting" as more children are born into the family, Harry replied: "No, I enjoy spending time with the grandkids, I love it I really do.

"Going to watch them play football or sport or whatever they're playing, I love being there and turning up and just watching the kids."

Jamie already shares two sons with ex-wife Louise Redknapp, Charley, 16, and Beau, 12. He and Eternal singer Louise, 46, parted ways in 2017 after 19 years of marriage.

Harry and wife Sandra's other son Mark Redknapp has three children of his own too.

Meanwhile, Andersson has four children with ex-husband Jonathan Lourie.

While she didn't make a public announcement herself, the Swedish model did appear to confirm her pregnancy after fans left congratulatory messages in the comment sections of her Instagram as she replied with prayer hands emojis to the well-wishers.
