However, he's not the only member of Take That to be expecting an addition to his brood imminently.
Gary Barlow's wife Dawn is pregnant with the couple's fourth child,
while Robbie Williams' wife Ayda Field is due to give birth to a baby
girl in August.
It was only a few days ago that the couple were spotted taking a quiet stroll near their home as Emma displayed a large bump.
Although looking radiant, Emma looked as though the final days of her pregnancy were perhaps taking their toll.
But Mark was there to escort his wife through the streets.

They managed to keep the baby news under wraps for several months, before they finally announced the pregnancy in April, revealing Emma was in fact already six months gone.
In the statement posted on the website Mark said at the time: 'Emma and I are delighted to confirm reports that we are nearly six months pregnant and expecting our third child in the summer.
'Myself, Emma, Elwood and Willow are thrilled with the news and cannot wait to meet the new addition to our family.'
The birth seals a comeback for Emma and Mark, who
was forced to admit he'd had at least 10 affairs behind his 35-year-old wife's back two years ago, before they were married.
Happy times: The pair already have two children, while Mark's bandmates Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams are also expecting children imminently
He said at the time when confessing his infidelity: 'I don't know how many girls there were in all. Maybe ten…
'I denied to her I was having an affair when things were going on.
feel like I am getting to know Em more and more every day. I love her to
death but our relationship hasn't always been great, because of me.'
But he promised to put the past behind him and added: 'I
want to do the right thing now for the kids and Emma.
'It's the best thing in the world having kids. I feel blessed and I am really sorry that I have done this to them and to Emma.'
