BOLTON Wanderers legend Fabrice Muamba and his wife Shauna have confirmed that they are welcoming a new addition to their family in November.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, the 32-year-old former footballer revealed that the couple are having a baby girl which will be their fourth child.

"She has definitely got a good kick on her - strong - and she is much livelier than any of the boys were," said Muamba, who famously cheated death in 2012 after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch that caused his heart to stop beating for 78 minutes.

Muamba has recently relived the terrifying incident for presenters Elis James and John Robins who are returning to BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Sounds with a second series of How Do You Cope?

Throughout the series the pair talk to celebrity guests about some of the mental and physical challenges they’ve faced.

James said: “I never fail to be amazed at the guests we interview on How Do You Cope? Whether it’s Monty Panesar discussing the pressures of elite level sport or Fabrice Muamba’s relentless positivity in the face of a career being cut so cruelly short, this series has inspired me as I’m sure it will the listener."

Future guests include comedian Josie Long and naturalist Chris Packham.

The new series of How Do You Cope? …with Elis And John is available now on BBC Sounds.
