The 34-year-old pop star has Ace, six, and Chiara (two) with wife Chloe, and she has admitted that JB was a little concerned when they discovered they were about to become parents for the first time.
She said: “That was a surprise, he got a little nervous then.”
Then JB added, “Yes, I had no prospect of having children, it was just very sudden and I don’t think I was expecting it. You know what I mean? And for me, I take things like that very, very seriously. “

JB is determined to be a true father figure to his children.
The JLS star is particularly determined to be a good role model for his son.
He said of Giovanna Fletcher’s Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast: “For me as a father, especially in the black community, you know the role of the father, not always, I think it changes.
“But historically it’s underrepresented and I see it in Ace anyway, but just to encourage him to be the father figure he … I think he was born and made to be and that responsibility only with to take over with both hands. “
JB previously admitted that Ace immediately established a relationship with his little sister.
He said, “He was amazing, he’s so proud to say to everyone, ‘This is my sister,’ and he wants to include Chiara in everything like story time and bath time.
“He’s a typical boisterous boy, but he instinctively knew that he had to be gentle with her and he speaks very softly to her.”
