Brooke revealed in January she was expecting another boy.
She said: “We are having another boy. We never found out with Mexx (and) this time we just said, ‘Why not?’
“To be honest, I’ve enjoyed pregnancies with having found out and not. It’s nice to know I’m having a boy and he will be so close in age to Mexx.
“Hopefully they will be little besties.”
