Former footballer Harry Redknapp has revealed that he’s “really pleased” about the fact he's becoming a grandfather again.

Harry is already grandad to five children and admitted to talkRADIO earlier today that he was excited to welcome a sixth grandchildren to the family.

It was recently reported that Harry’s son, footballer Jamie Redknapp, 47, is expecting his first child with girlfriend Frida Andersson.

Harry broke his silence as he spoke to Julia Hartley-Brewer, saying: “Yeah I'm really pleased, it's good news. So looking forward to that and it's exciting times.”

He added: "I enjoy spending time with the grandkids, I love it, I really do. Going to watch them play football and sport… I love being there and turning up and watching the kids and taking them to football on Saturday.”

Harry also remarked on how he prefers to let kids enjoy playing sports by not getting too involved. He said: “I stand out the way, I listen to the parents shouting at their kids, that is not good. Just let them enjoy playing.”

The news that Jamie and Frida are expecting was revealed yesterday, and Frida is reported to be three months pregnant and due in November.

A source told The Sun: “Jamie and Frida are absolutely delighted. They’ve been virtually inseparable in lockdown, and their relationship has gone from strength to strength.

"The couple started telling their nearest and dearest last week. Jamie’s been telling pals he’s really excited to be a dad again — less excited about the sleepless nights, and ­nappy-changing.”

Jamie’s model girlfriend then confirmed the exciting baby news last night on social media.

Frida, 37, is a Swedish mum-of-four and began dating Jamie in August 2020.

A source told OK!: “Louise was knocked sideways by the news. Jamie didn't tell her directly, she found out through family.”
