Pop star Fatboy Slim and his DJ wife Zoe Ball are "over the moon" their desperate two-month-long attempt to conceive a child has ended in success.

The PRAISE YOU star - real name NORMAN COOK - and Ball have announced they are expecting their second child 18 months after Ball's scandalous affair with fellow radio presenter DAN PEPPE, which put a hiatus on their turbulent marriage.

A close friend of the couple says, "She is thrilled and Norman is really excited, too. They have always wanted more children and have made no secret of the fact they have been trying very hard recently.

"They're really happy that they can give son WOODY a brother or a sister. As a couple they have definitely been through so much together. This definitely brought a smile back to their faces."
