Gary Barlow set for third child

Gary Barlow is going to be a father again.

The Take That star’s wife Dawn is expecting the couple’s third child, which is due early next year.

A source said: “Gary and Dawn are absolutely thrilled. The baby really is the icing on the cake for Gary after the amazing success of the Take That reunion.”

Gary and Dawn, who is three months pregnant, already have an eight-year-old son Daniel and a daughter Emily, six.

The Patience singer may have to take time out from Take That’s upcoming tour, which is due to begin in December, so he can be at the birth.

The band are also set to release a new album before Christmas, and are currently in the studio working on material.

Gary, 37, recently admitted he and his bandmates – Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald – find it difficult to take a break.

He said: “We are workaholics and we miss each other. We had a little break after completing our tour, but after a couple of months it was like, ‘Come on guys, let’s get back to work.’

“We will be back by Christmas. We can’t stay away.”
