One of the much-loved members of the iconic children's group The Wiggles, Purple Wiggle John Pearce, has announced he and his wife Jessie are expecting their first child together, due in December this year.

Taking to Instagram yesterday, John shared a video of him and his wife finding out they were pregnant as well as a photo of an ultrasound. “It has been a long journey, but our beautiful angel has finally been sent to us,” he captioned the post. "We are so full of joy and can’t wait to meet you - baby Adamo Pearce due Dec 2024."

The video also showed the couple doing a gender reveal balloon pop, revealing they're having a baby boy. John and Jessie married in 2019, with John joining The Wiggles in 2021.

The happy news was met with many congratulatory comments from Wiggles cast mates, new and old, as well as fans and friends.
