The couple celebrated their one year anniversary back in May.
In a post to Marcel’s Instagram, he wrote: “Happy Anniversary @rebeccavieirax my sweetness!
“Mad spending our anniversary on lockdown but there’s no one in the world I’d rather be spending 24/7 with mama.
“Love you so much! We’ve had a mad year, if they only knew! But we’re here about to start the next 365. Let’s Go, I’m so ready.”
This week it was announced that Marcel and Rebecca were expecting their first child together.
In an exclusive interview with OK! Magazine, Marcel said: “I was in the studio with my headphones on, and she tapped me on the shoulder.
“She had loads of pregnancy tests in her hand, just to make doubly sure.
“It was crazy! It’s my first baby and I’ve been waiting a long time for this, so it’s just mad.”

Later in the interview, Marcel spoke candidly of how Rebecca had suffered a miscarriage early into their relationship.
He explained: “We don’t really like to talk about it. We found out we were pregnant very early in our relationship, and both felt like we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together, so we were getting ready for the baby.
“Then we found out we had a miscarriage. We both took it really badly.
“It took a little while for us to get over it, but it did make us stronger because when you go through something like that, it makes you be there for the other person.”
Rebecca added: “It was hard to go through, but it really did bring us closer together.”
Marcel went on to say how he and Rebecca plan to tie the knot in the future.
The Love Island star said: “A million per cent. I don’t want to give too much away, I’ve got certain plans.
“I know this is the woman I’m going to spend the rest of my life with. There will definitely be wedding bells.”
