The actor could be seen cradling his partner's blossoming bump in the photo, which was shared on 1 August.

"Can't believe my second daughter will be born in 2 weeks that's mad. 24 with 2 kids yano think it's time to wrap it up," he joked. "ahahaha all jokes aside man can not wait to be a dad again truly blessed."
