Ben Foden's pregnant new wife Jackie Belanoff Smith sheathes her bump as they pack on the PDA

Ben Foden has been seen with his new wife Jackie Belanoff Smith for the first time since it was revealed they are expecting their first child together. 

The rugby player, 34, married American entrepreneur Jackie in August just two weeks after they started dating, and it came to light last month that they are now expecting their first child together. 

In their first sighting since the reveal, the couple looked positively smitten as they shared a kiss in their new hometown, New York on Sunday.

Proud parents to be! Ben Foden has been seen with his new wife Jackie Belanoff Smith for the first time since it was revealed they are expecting their first child together

Jackie's baby bump was just visible in a cream knitted jumper that she layered beneath a shearling jacket. 

The mother-to-be teamed the garment with leggings and chunky scarf, whilst she sported a bouncy glossy blow dry. 

Ben kept things casual on the outing as he donned a grey hoodie and joggers with fresh white trainers.

Last month, MailOnline exclusively revealed that Ben is expecting a child with Jackie, 19 months after his divorce from Una Healy.

Friends of the Celebrity X Factor star said he is 'absolutely delighted' at becoming a father for the third time.

He already shares two children Aoife, seven, and five-year-old Tadhg, with The Saturdays singer, Una, 38.

'Ben and Jackie are over the moon,' a source told MailOnline.

'They're so excited to become parents together for the first time and are looking forward to starting their new lives as a family.

'The plan is to move from America back to the UK and raise the baby here – there's lots to organise but they can't wait for their new arrival.'

Ex-England rugby international Ben first married The Saturdays singer Una in her native Ireland in 2012, after the pair dated for four years.

The couple divorced in July 2018 after six years of marriage when Ben confessed to cheating on Una with PR Becky Milne.

Their split came days before they had planned to move to the US with their two children, which resulted in Ben starting his new life having signed with Rugby United New York on his own. 

Una has since moved on from Ben with new long-term partner Irish sportsman, David Breen.

Whirlwind: The rugby player, 34, married Jackie in August just two weeks after they started dating, and it came to light last month that they are now expecting their first child together

Ben married Jackie on board a luxury yacht in Nantucket, Massachusetts in August despite the pair only knowing each other for a few weeks.

Following the ceremony, Ben said: 'The world has a funny way of working things out, many people think I'm a bad person – as I'm sure they'll be many nasty comments left under this post by keyboard warriors a plenty.

'But I met a girl who seriously swept me off my feet and in a time of hardship showed me love, a deep devoted love.

'People will say we are mad or crazy or even fools, as @snackyjax and I had only been dating seriously for a little over two weeks before deciding to get married.  

'But when someone like her comes in to your life, why would I wait?'

Ben revealed to MailOnline last year that he plans to move back to the UK with Jackie and buy a house together in Cheshire. 

Family: The former England rugby international already shares two children Aoife, seven, and five-year-old Tadhg, with ex-wife Una Healy, 38.
