“Welcome to the world my little [princess emoji]," Jack wrote when he shared the exciting news.
It's currently unknown if Jack is in a relationship or not, he hasn't shared any photos online of a girlfriend and the name of the mother of his child remains private.
Molly is already being spoken about as the 'one to watch' from the upcoming series, ahead of her entrance in the famous Marjorcan villa she called the experience, "ideal timing and the perfect way to find someone".
She said: "There’s no better way to meet someone than by going into a Villa in the sun with the potential ‘one’ in there."
