Announcing that his wife Dawn is pregnant with their fourth child together, the Take That member jokes on Twitter that he has set his eyes on winning the title of 'Celebrity Dad of the Year'.
Gary Barlow is preparing himself for yet another diaper duty. The 41-year-old member of Take That has just broken the news that he's going to be a father for the fourth time. "My wife and I are expecting our 4th child #Anotherowngoal," so he wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday, February 19.
After receiving a slew of congratulations from his 1.3 million followers, the judge on the U.K. version of "The X Factor" tweeted, "What a lovely bunch you are.Thank you for all your kind messages. We are a very excited family." He later joked that he's now aiming to dethrone Peter Andre as writing on his account, "Next goal 'Celebrity Dad of the Year' #moveasideandre."
Barlow married Dawn, a dancer on Take That's 1995 Nobody Else Tour, in 2000. They are already parents to 11-year-old son Daniel and two daughters, 9-year-old Emily and 3-year-old Daisy. Dishing on Barlow's reaction over the baby news, a source told The Sun, "Gary is constantly beaming from ear to ear. The news couldn't have come at a better time because he's a real family man and now he can be around more."
