Inside Jamie Redknapp’s former bachelor pad as he ‘prepares to welcome new baby’

Congratulations are in order – former footballer Jamie Redknapp, 47, is expecting a baby with his girlfriend Frida Andersson, 37, according to reports.

The soon-to-be parents will reportedly be preparing to welcome their new baby at Jamie's former bachelor pad in Surrey.

The pair live there alongside their pet Shar Peis and Jamie's sons Charley, 16, and Beau, 12, who he shares with his ex-wife Louise.

This comes as Jamie's girlfriend Frida seemed to 'confirm' the news of the new baby on social media this weekend.

The Sky Sports soccer panellist moved into the snazzy Surrey home as a single man after his divorce from Louise Redknapp in December 2017.

However, the pundit has since made his former bachelor pad a family-friendly space for his sons by fitting in a cinema room and ping pong table for them to play on, which he showed off during an episode of Houseguest With Patrice Evra on Youtube.

Jamie's abode also boasts a first-rate home cinema room, which has a giant projector on the wall and a spacious grey velvet L-shaped sofa as well as a row of bar stools for extra guests.

Jamie even used the room to watch his dad Harry Redknapp get crowned in the jungle after winning I'm A Celebrity in 2018.

The impressive house is decorated with a modern monochrome theme and it's set with high-rise ceilings and a chandelier to match above shiny black marble floors and white walls, alongside a smart dining table and classy lampshades.

Jamie's lavish crib even has one room entirely dedicated to suits, so the broadcaster is always ready for a formal dinner at the drop of a hat.

And outside the house, the pundit has a lovely patio space with grey rattan furniture and an expansive garden which is definitely fit for a football game if Jamie ever wants to get the boots back on.

Not just kitted out for football, Jamie's pad also features a basketball hoop ready for when Charles and Beau stay over and want to take their dad out onto the court.

Although the couple hasn't announced their reported pregnancy yet, Jamie's girlfriend Frida apparently confirmed the news on Instagram when she replied to a string of congratulatory messages on Sunday night after sharing a picture of one of her sons.

For example, one social media user posted: "Lovely news on your new baby. Congratulations to both," to which the model responded with a thank you emoji.

The pair, who have been linked since August last year, are reportedly delighted at the news and have been loving each other's company in lockdown.

A source told The Sun: "Jamie and Frida are absolutely delighted. They've been virtually inseparable in lockdown, and their relationship has gone from strength to strength.

"Jamie's been telling pals he's really excited to be a dad again — less excited about the sleepless nights, and ­nappy-changing."

The source added that the couple has begun telling their "nearest and dearest" the reported news over the last few days.

Former footballer Jamie split from Eternal singer Louise in 2017 after being married for 19 years, and recently praised his ex-wife for doing a "great job" of co-parenting their two boys Charley and Beau.

Speaking to Hello! Magazine last month, Jamie commented: "I'm very fortunate I've got two great boys. When you co-parent, it's something you have to do together and make sure you're both pulling the right way."

"Louise does a great job with the boys. We do the best we can and try to be tough but fair".
