Aston Merrygold will drop all things Strictly if his first-born arrives early!

Aston Merrygold has said that he’ll drop all things Strictly Come Dancing if his first-born arrives before their due date.

Aston, former JLS star, and his girlfriend Sarah Richards are expecting their first child together in the New Year.

Although his baby isn’t due until early next year, it’s been known for first-borns not to arrive on their due-date – Aston isn’t worrying about this and has said what’ll happen if that’s the case and he makes it to the final on December 16.

Aston told The Mirror: “If I got to the final it would be amazing, it would be great, but what if suddenly her waters broke?

“If that happens then I’m not going to finish the dance. I’ll be straight out, grab the bag, let’s go. I’m prepared. I’ve got a great support network around me and I’m getting a lot of advice. At the moment I am not getting much sleep as there is not much room in the bed.

Aston added: “I’m trying to juggle between Strictly and keeping Sarah happy.”

The couple confirmed their pregnancy on Instagram, in the post they said: “I’m NEVER speechless but words can’t describe how I feel. All I know is there’s no feeling like it. Sar, I promise to be the best daddy ever to our baby boy/girl.

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 @sarahlourichards are going to be parents!!!!!! 😃❤🌍😍 I'm NEVER speechless but words can't describe how I feel..
