Tom Fletcher and wife Giovanna's pregnancy was one we all felt a part of, thanks to their joyful baby announcement (the one with the pumpkins, remember?) on YouTube. Not to mention the amazing pregnancy time-lapse video the couple created especially for their fans.

But it seems as if Tom's McBusted bandmates were a lot more involved in the experience than we were - especially as Gi went into labour while they were all at dinner together!

Speaking on her Hello! blog, the yummy mummy said: "We were out for dinner with all the McBusted family (celebrating Danny’s birthday) when my waters broke – so I’m pretty certain Buzz just wanted to be part of the fun," she writes.

"I can’t tell you how giddy we all were when we left our friends in the restaurant knowing that the next time we’d see them we’d have a child."

But, despite the suddenness of it all, Tom Fletcher proved to be a calm and encouraging birth partner.

Gi explained: "I can honestly say that my labour was far from the horror stories people love sharing – it was the most amazingly powerful experience I’ve ever had.

"I never realised my body was so clever! During the final stages I felt like I’d taken every drug known to man – I clearly hadn’t, but I was calm enough to allow my body to produce a whole heap of oxytocin and endorphins with the help of some Michael McIntyre standup, singing along to Coldplay albums and my wonderful husband Tom.

"He was as encouraging as I knew he would be – stuffing jelly babies into our mouths, rubbing my back and reminding me to breathe anytime a frown appeared on my brow."

Isn't he just the cutest?
