Harry Redknapp has said that his ex daughter-in-law Louise Redknapp is doing ‘great’ following the news that her former husband Jamie Redknapp is expecting his first child with girlfriend Frida Andersson.
It was previously reported that former footballer Jamie and his partner, who he has been dating since August 2020, were set to welcome a baby in the near future – four years after Jamie split from singer Louise.
Now Jamie’s father Harry has said that the two exes, who share children Charles, 16, and Beau, 12, are currently on good terms with one another.
Frida, a model who hails from Sweden, is also a mother to four sons with her hedge fund manager ex-husband Jonathan Lourie, 58.
Speaking to The Sun, the former football manager explained that both Jamie, 47, and Frida, 37, are still in touch with Louise and the rest of the family.
Harry, 74, and his wife Sandra Harris also told the publication they were ‘excited’ to become grandparents again.
And Sandra joked that her husband will not be changing nappies once the baby has been born.

‘You didn’t do it before!’ she cheekily said.
Harry had previously shared his delight over his son’s baby announcement, saying he is ‘really pleased’.
Confirming the news as he spoke with presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer on talkRADIO, Harry responded to her congratulations by describing it as an ‘exciting time’.
He said: ‘Yeah, I’m really pleased, it’s good news.
‘So looking forward to that and it’s exciting times.’
The football legend also chatted about his enjoyable experience as a grandfather so far, revealing he wasn’t any less excited about the arrival of grandchild number six.

‘I enjoy spending time with the grandkids, I love it, I really do,’ he said.
‘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 Saturdays.’
But he also revealed how he’s not one to push a football career on any of them or shout from the sidelines during matches.
He added: ‘As long as they enjoy playing, I encourage them to enjoy it.’
