Jordan previously confessed that he attempted to propose to his girlfriend twice before she fell pregnant, but Naomi became convinced the duo would never tie the knot.

Before he asked for her hand in marriage, he told The Sun: "I was ready to propose when I found out she was pregnant with Cass.

"So I thought, 'OK, I'll wait until he's a little older and then I'll take Naomi away and surprise her with a proposal.'

"Then when I started thinking about doing it again this year I found out she was pregnant again."
