Happy: The couple posed together while on holiday in Barbados
On that team he stunned, scoring an important goal in the team’s World Cup quarter finals match-up against Sweden. The goal gave England a lead on Sweden, which helped keep them in the competition.
The couple’s happy news comes nine months to the day after Maguire and the rest of the Three Lions stormed to victory against Colombia, after a nail-biting penalty shootout.
The Three Lions made history when they won their first ever World Cup penalty shootout, sparking euphoria across the nation who tuned into the nail-biting match in Moscow.
Close: Fern was also a figure of support to Harry as he jetted to Russia last year for the 2018 World Cup
After Kane sent the team 1-0 up with a penalty in the 57th minute, the match went to extra time with Colombia scored in the dying minutes, and many viewers were ready to be disappointed yet again when the game went to penalties.
It was Eric Dier who delivered the winning kick to the delight of fans, the team and manager Gareth Southgate.
Harry, whose net worth is about £22.5m ($29.8m), according to TransferMarkt.com. regularly shares photos of Fern on social media.
Many fans will recall the moment Harry poked fun at a snap that showed him chatting to fiancée Fern, as she stood on the side lines following their World Cup quarter-final victory against Sweden last summer.
Doing what he does best: Harry pictured during a qualifying match between England and Czech Republic at Wembley Stadium on March 22
Having scored one of the two winning goals, Harry was in high spirits after the win and took to Twitter to post the snap with the caption: ‘Can you ask the neighbours to put the bins out on Monday? We’re not going home just yet.’
Fans quickly got in on the action posting their own hilarious memes, including his England team-mate Kyle Walker who wrote: ‘Yeah so a good header doesn’t hurt.
‘I mean the moment you head it proper, you feel it’s a good one. Know what I mean love?’
It now remains to be seen whether Harry will still be playing in Leicester’s Saturday tie at Huddersfield Town following the news of his new arrival, having been one of the team’s top goal-scorers this season.
Leicester currently sit ninth in the Premier League, following their 2-0 victory against Bournemouth last week. The team have seen an improvement since they appointed Brendan Rodgers as manager in February.
Maguire did not play in the club’s most recent tie, perhaps hinting he knew his first child would be on the way soon.
