Former footballer Fabrice Muamba is to become a father for the second time after it was revealed that his wife Shauna is expecting a child in June.

The ex-Bolton Wanderers midfielder, who just 10 months ago 'died' for 78 minutes when his heart stopped on the pitch, is said to be 'elated' at the news.

The pair are thought to have found out their good news shortly before Christmas.

A friend of the couple told The Sun: "They would have been thrilled anyway but given what happened to Fabrice last year, they feel even more blessed and lucky.

"Both were looking forward to 2013 but this makes it more special."

Muamba and Shauna tied the knot last October seven months on from his heart attack. The ceremony was said to have been attended by several football stars past and present and some of the doctors who battled to save him during the FA Cup tie at White Hart Lane.

The overjoyed couple already have a four-year-old son, Joshua.
