"Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies? 😅 so grateful and excited to become a dad ❤️ bring on the sleepless nights 🤪", the Liverpool F.C. midfielder wrote in the caption.

While a due date has not been disclosed, it is likely that Edwards is past the three-month mark, which could mean the new bub could be greeting the world in October or November.
