The Apprentice's Joseph Valente reveals he's engaged and expecting first child six years after winning the show

THE Apprentice star Joseph Valente has revealed that he's engaged and is expecting his first child with his fiancée six years after winning the show.

Joseph won the business-styled reality show in 2015 and walked away with a £250,000 investment deal from Lord Alan Sugar.

The 31-year-old entrepreneur announced that he was having a baby on social media.

Standing on a balcony with his girlfriend Megan Clarke, he told his fans that he has some "exciting news" to share on Valentine's Day.

He said: "We are having a baby! It is 16 weeks old to the day. I'm praying for a boy."

The couple popped a confetti canon that exploded with blue paper – before celebrating at discovering they are having a boy.

The former reality TV star then got down on one knee and popped the question to Megan.

Wearing a figure-hugging dress, a shocked Megan was over the moon and the pair shared a sweet kiss as they celebrated.

Joseph said it was the "proudest day" of his life and joked that he was thrilled to have a future "heir" to his company.

He gushed: "Never thought getting engaged would feel so good. Now I've got a family to fight for, this empire is getting built bigger than I ever dreamed I would go."

The star has already teased fans with a name, saying his son will be called Joseph Junior.

A number of fans congratulated the pair, with one writing: "Congrats to both! You're going to make great parents."

Another posted: "This is amazing news, congrats Joseph."

A third added: "Massive congratulationsJoe and Megan, very exciting times ahead for you."

The Apprentice winner told fans he's already set up his son an Instagram account to document Megan's pregnancy.

Joseph found fame on the BBC One show when Lord Sugar invested in his plumbing business ImraGas.

In 2017 the pair parted ways on friendly terms with business mogul Sugar saying he wished Joseph all the best for the future.

Joseph said at the time: "I am so grateful for everything Lord Sugar has done for me and I could not have asked for a better partner in the early stages of my business career.

"I owe him a great deal. I am confident that with the winning business model we created together, I can continue to grow the business successfully."
