Pregnant Taylor Ward and husband Riyad Mahrez announce gender of baby with sweet video

Taylor Ward and Riyad Mahrez have announced they are expecting a baby girl in a sweet video posted on the model's Instagram.

The pair looked overjoyed as a balloon burst to reveal pink confetti falling to the ground, revealing they are having a daughter.

Posting on her Instagram page, Taylor, 24, said: "baby GIRL.. we can’t wait to meet you', alongside a heart emoji.

After the confetti fell to the ground, the pregnant model walked over to her footballer husband and gave him a hug as pink and blue balloons floated up into Dubai's skyline – with family and friends there to take photographs of the special occasion.

The news was met with lots of happy comments from friends online, as well as getting more than 225,000 likes.

Love Island star and friend, Kendall Rae Knight commented "Aww congrats guys xxx" with three heart emojis, while fellow Love Island star and friend, Joanna Chimonides, wrote: "congrats baby girlllllll!! cannot wait to meet her !!!!" with lots of heart emojis.

Towie's Georgia Kousoulou commented: "Awwww congratulations" along with three heart emojis.

Taylor, who is the daughter of Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward and retired footballer Ashley Ward, announced her pregnancy on Instagram back in February with a snap of her and Riyad, 31, holding a string of baby scan photos.

At the time she wrote: "Where life begins and love never ends".

The pair started dating in early 2020 before getting engaged in a sun-soaked proposal in Mykonos, Greece, in June 2021, with the Manchester City star giving Taylor a £400,000 engagement ring.

At the end of 2021, the couple reportedly married in secret in a Muslim ceremony known as the Nikah, where they signed a contract which makes them legally married under Islamic law.

The pair will also be taking part in a second wedding day to make their union legal in the UK.

A source told The Sun : “Riyad and Taylor are now legally married under Islamic law following their ceremony late last year.

"For them as a couple it was important to follow the traditions of his religion.

“The ceremony was short but sweet and has started them on their path to their second wedding which is very much going to be the main event.

“Taylor and Riyad are so excited and are very much in love.”
