Aston and Sarah announced her pregnancy in September, with the singer admitting he had found it hard to keep the news a secret. He shared a series of photos showing the couple sat at a table with a spare seat 'reserved' for their baby, along with a photo of their child's scan. He wrote: "On May 29th 2017 we found out that our lives were going to change forever this secret has been so hard to keep, but I'm so excited to finally be able to share the news with everybody that me and my beautiful lady are going to be parents!!!!!! I'm NEVER speechless but words can't describe how I feel… All I know is there's no feeling like it!"
There was further cause for celebration in December, when Aston popped the question to his expectant girlfriend on Christmas Eve. Sharing the news of their engagement on Instagram, Sarah said she was "floating on cloud nine". She wrote: "So I had the best Christmas Eve of my entire life! My favourite asked me to be his wife and of course I said YES!!!" she revealed.
