Professor Green and his girlfriend Karima McAdam are expecting their first child together.
The musician, 37, posted a snap to Instagram on New Year’s Day, of him in the bath and Karima, 36, sat on the floor in patterned pajamas, looking at her bump.
Pro Green – real name Stephen Manderson – captioned the snap: ‘And then, all of a sudden everything is different. It all makes sense.’

On December 30, he had posted a reflective caption asking ‘what’s the point in anything?’
It seems as if this were a precursor to the New Year’s announcement.
He continued in the caption revealing the exciting news: ‘It’s finally gotten to the point where it’s impossible to hide, and unless I wanted to wear prosthetics there was no more sneaking into appointments.
‘Not even during the current climate, having to wear a mask and keeping my hood up with the strings pulled tight has stopped me from getting caught out at the hospital.
‘So my mate and I are procreating’: Karima – who started dating the I Need You Tonight singer in summer 2019 – also shared the news, posting a similar photo of the pair in the bathroom

‘I’ve been overwhelmed with excitement, admiration and curiosity ever since we found out. I’m excited about meeting you. Holding you. Teaching you. Learning from you.
‘Never have I admired anyone as much as I have your mamma. She’s nothing short of remarkable, remarkable in fact is an understatement.
‘To see the body change in such a way is fascinating, incredible, unbelievable, amazing, ASTOUNDING. Weird. Ridley Scott had to get his inspiration from somewhere…
Poignant: He continued with a lengthy caption revealing the exciting news
‘I feel a bit useless sometimes, pedestrianised; left to spectate from the sin bin as each phase plays out. It’s humbling; never do our strengths as men compare to that of a woman. I’m awestruck. Subservient (albeit reluctantly at times.
‘I’m curious about everything to come; about who and how you’ll be, what you’ll look and sound like… and who’ll be the stricter parent.
‘A friend told me the best thing you can do for your own anxiety is to have a child. It sort of made sense at the time, it doesn’t anymore; THIS HAS BEEN WILD.
‘My understanding of mortality and just how fragile life is have grown exponentially. Wishing you all (and hoping for) a very joyous and healthy 2021. Happy new year.’ [sic]
She wrote: ‘So my mate and I are procreating. We weren’t gonna say anything but trying to get him past hospital security, scans, and various other appts masked and cloaked has failed on occasion’
Expecting: ‘I REALLY loved biology and now I’m my own walking case,’ Karima added
Karima – who started dating the I Need You Tonight singer in summer 2019 – also shared the news, posting a similar photo of the pair in the bathroom, this one with Pro Green leaning out of the bath to kiss the mother-to-be.
She wrote: ‘So my mate and I are procreating. We weren’t gonna say anything but trying to get him past hospital security, scans, and various other appts masked and cloaked has failed on occasion.
‘Also 2020 has been a trip/non trip of sorts and the only thing that has spurred me/us on is the longing to meet our little babe (also if I hear another friend tell me to lay off the deliveroo I might get violent).
‘Pregnancy… without going into detail, It’s been tumultuous, a process this delicate has been hard for this heavy handed Berber brute and I’m sure there are more surprises to come but I feel lucky – I REALLY loved biology and now I’m my own walking case.

The couple tied the knot at Babington House in Somerset in September 2013, but announced their split after two and a half years of marriage in February 2016.
The duo finalised their divorce in May 2016, the same week that Millie chose to go public with Hugo Taylor, her former Made In Chelsea co-star boyfriend with whom she had reunited.
Millie and Hugo got engaged on the Greek island of Mykonos the following year, and tied the knot in Sussex in June 2018. They welcomed daughter Sienna in 2020.
Pro Green previously admitted his divorce hasn’t put him off getting married again.
He said in an interview with Closer magazine in March 2018: ‘I’d love to be dad one day, but I’m not broody yet – I can have them until I’m 50!’
‘I’ve definitely learned something from every relationship I’ve had. If you don’t learn something then it is time wasted. But Millie hasn’t put me off tying the knot again.’
