The reality star shared a love heart over his sweet snap and wrote: "My life"
Marcel and Rebecca found out they were expecting a little boy at a gender reveal party last August.
And it was a double celebration for the star, as he also proposed to Rebecca at the bash.
A source told OK online : "Marcel didn’t tell anyone that he was going to propose, even his best friends, he did not tell anyone that he was planning it so it was a whole surprise for everyone.
"Rebecca cried and every one at the party was crying, it was really emotional and every one was super happy."
Their baby joy comes a year after the couple went through a devastating miscarriage.
Telling OK! about the moment he found out he was going to be a dad, 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."
The pair have been together for 14 months, with their first pregnancy coming early in the relationship.
Despite their miscarriage heartache, they said the tragedy has made them a stronger couple.
He said: "This is just a message to everyone that has been sending all their prayers and blessings.
"They don’t go missed, I really appreciate them, I really need them right now.
"It’s been a very, very hard few days for me. Saturday was literally the worst day of my life and I nearly died but, yeah, just keep sending them my way because I really need them. Thank you so much. Big love from Marcel."
