Union J’s JJ Hamblett made an announcement on Twitter this evening that none of us here at Unreality TV was expecting… he’s going to be a daddy!

Now, we nearly fell off our chair when we read the news on Twitter. JJ says he is “super excited” to become a father and the rest of the Union J lads are already thinking of names beginning with J.

Hamblett, who is aged 25, wrote on Twitter this evening that he wanted the fans to be the first to know that he’s expecting his first child with girlfriend Caterina Lopez.

He wrote: “Guys I want you to be the first to know that I’ve got some big news…I’m going to be a daddy…. 🙂 🙂 wooop x

“My girlfriend and I are super super excited and the boys cant wait to be uncles! They are already thinking of names begining with J lol :-)x (sic)”

Meanwhile, it didn’t take long for the rest of the group to take to Twitter to congratulate Hamblett and Lopez on the news.

Josh Cuthbert wrote: “SUPER DOOOPER WOOOOPER HAPPY FOR MY BROTHER JJ 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 hi my names Uncle Josh……just call me Uncle.Pidge. 😛 hehe! Love you bro x”

Jaymi added: “Congrats JJ & Cat – gonna be an uncle whoop”

Elsewhere, Rylan Clark who appeared on last year’s series of The X Factor with Union J also offered his support via the social networking website in which he tweeted: “so proud of you. I’m gonna be an uncle again!!! Xxxx”

It was only two days ago (Monday) that the lads debuted the video to Beautiful Life which sent the pulses of girls around the country racing and now, it looks like the guys have more news to celebrate.

Congratulations to JJ and Caterina!
