Wicks, 32, revealed he and his partner were to become parents two months ago.
It was the first time he had shared a picture of himself with Rosie and he said that, although he has “always chosen to keep my personal life and relationship private”, he wanted to share the news of the “amazing new thing coming into our lives”.
He added: “We are both absolutely buzzing to be parents.
“We don’t know the sex of the baby but it’s due in just over 10 weeks time.”
Wicks became a star with his diet and exercise regime and popular YouTube videos, before becoming a best-selling author with his Body Coach books and hosting his own series on Channel 4.
