St Helens comic Johnny Vegas and his wife are expecting their first child.

The funnyman, who has a son from his first marriage, announced the news via Twitter, posting a picture of the scan and photoshopping a pint of Guinness into the picture.

Johnny’s wife, Irish journalist and TV presenter Maia Dunphy, captioned the snap: “Well Johnny, at least we know he’s definitely yours.”

Johnny added: “No need for a DNA test then, or for Maia to splash out on expensive maternity gear, just borrow my jeans.”
