McFly star Tom Fletcher found an unusual way to announce he is to become a father — by carving a message in pumpkins and placing a video online.

The frontman and his wife Giovanna created a musical video which sees them slicing through the skin of the squashes to spell out: “We're having a baby.”

The video is captioned: ‘Sometimes the best way to say something is with a pumpkin... and a song.’

Fletcher — whose hits include Obviously and Five Colours In Her Hair — charmed guests at his wedding by delivering his speech to the accompaniment of the tunes from his songs.

And he shared the moment from his wedding last December by placing it on YouTube, where it has been seen over 11m times.

The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
