On Instagram, he shared a photo of him and Margaret holding a sonogram. “[Margaret] and I are excited to let everyone know that we are expecting a new addition to the Younghusband family in the Summer of 2020,” Phil wrote in the caption. “Mags has just entered her 2nd trimester and so far, she is doing really well.”

“It has been our dream to be parents for a long time now and for our wishes to come true, we feel truly blessed by the Lord,” he continued. “We hope to be half as good as parents as our Mother’s and Father’s have been to us and those parents we have surrounded ourselves with.”
