The One Show’s Jermaine Jenas and wife Ellie welcome fourth child and share sweet name

The One Show's Jermaine Jenas has announced that his fourth child has been born along with revealing his name.

The presenter took to Instagram to share the happy news that his first son had been born with a cute picture of the dad of four holding his new baby boy.

He also announced the baby's name as Jacob Anthony Jenas.

Jermaine captioned the post: "Jacob Anthony Jenas, 08.10.21 You have no idea how loved you are! Good luck with three big sisters though!!"

Jermaine's also tagged his wife Ellie in his post and she took to her page to share the happy news as well.

The former footballer also has three daughters Geneva, eight, and Olivia, four, with Ellie, as well as daughter Sancha, 14, from a previous relationship.

The good news comes soon after Jermaine was praised for Channel 4's Hunting The Football Trolls documentary that explored social media's response to racist abuse of England's footballers.

He said: "We're going back to the dark ages of racism.'

"Bananas that were thrown to pitch have turned into monkey emojis sent to people on social media. And the use of the N-word seems to be normalised again. Offenders need to be held to account."

News of the couple's new arrival was announced during Monday's episode of The One Show as Jermaine's co-host Ronan Keating announced: "First off congratulations to our very own Jermaine and his wife Ellie, who had a baby boy called Jacob at the weekend!

"Enjoy some time off, no sleep for you Jermaine!"

Jermaine revealed that his wife was expecting back during his debut appearance on The One Show in May.

He said: "I have a baby on the way. It's a boy. Very excited in our house."

Last August Jermaine opened up about how he experienced 'imposter syndrome' during his football career because of perceived preferential treatment of star players.

During his career he won 21 caps playing for England as well as being included in Sven-Goran Eriksson's 2006 World Cup squad.

Speaking on the British Army podcast 'The Locker', Jermaine said: "I had a couple of moments struggling with imposter syndrome throughout my career as a player.

"It was playing for England and it was nothing to do with my ability or my deserving of the position I was in."

Imposter syndrome involves feelings of self doubt personal incompetence that can persist despite your education, accomplishments or experience.
