Late last year, though, tragedy struck as their Chesire mansion was raided.

on Boxing Day while Jack’s family were inside, making off with £1million of jewellery.

Jack only spoke about the ‘traumatic’ incident for the first time recently, after it emerged that Sasha, who was watching Jack’s match at the time, hit a panic button.

It is thought 10 relatives – including Jack’s parents and siblings – were inside the property at the time of the burglary.

The star’s loved ones were forced to run for cover inside the £5.6million property, which Jack and Sasha only moved into before Christmas.

A source later said that Sasha was ‘in pieces’ over what happened, especially as it regarding her relationship, forcing her to turn off social media comments.

‘Jack is particularly angry about the impact this has had on Sasha. They’ve been together nearly half of his life and he loves her to bits,’ the insider added.

‘He will now do anything to protect her. They’ve got their dream home but it means nothing if she’s not happy and Jack wants her to feel as safe in it as possible.’

Meanwhile, their joyous baby announcement about becoming a family follows Jack’s devastation of missing out on the final 26-man England squad for Euro 2024.

As manager Gareth Southgate cropped his 33-man team down, Jack was one of seven players who failed to make the cut.

According to , the player was both stunned and upset by the outcome.

However, sitting out of the tournament has surely allowed Jack some downtime and the opportunity to support Sasha through the early stages of her pregnancy.
