He wrote: ‘Being a father is a quality that is born with us and that we can simply develop, to create better that baby that is ours.

‘To be a father is to live another life, through the eyes of another person. Being a first-time dad is trying to be the best dad in the world even without the least notion of where to start – although it is very clear in our head which way you want to go.

‘Being a father is the great privilege that life gives us to see someone with our details born! I love you my family!’

Blogger Maja wrote alongside the post: ‘At last, I can tell you that I and Victor will be parents in April (now I cry again).

‘It is so big and amazing that we can barely take it in.

‘While it’s so big, it feels like we’ve known about it for so long now that the shock has subsided and that it feels completely natural. Being parents is the only reality I can imagine right now.’

Maja, who is due in the spring and revealed this week that she was 27 weeks pregnant, added: ‘The only feeling bigger than anything else is love. I already love my baby so much that it sometimes hurts in my heart.

‘My beloved little baby. Like I’ll be Mom. And Victor Dad.

‘I am just so happy (and tired) and it feels so nice to finally tell you about what has taken up all my thought activities in the past two months.’
