Posting a video of Nikki at the fertility clinic, he said: "2 baby Reid embryos in the oven!"
Tagging Harley Street Fertility Clinic, he added: "Well @ivf_chasing_dreams did it!! With more than a littke help from @hsfc_uk. [sic]"

The parents-to-be, who have been together for eight years, have made no secret of their hopes to start a family together in the past.
Nikki has been open about her struggle to conceive, bravely discussing her fifth miscarriage in a heartbreaking Instagram post in early 2019.
At the time, she said: "It’s taken me a long time to go public because it was such amazing news again and I got pregnant from my IVF cycle.
"Unfortunately today the scan confirmed that Baby Phoenix Reid was no longer viable. We are heartbroken and devastated.
"I was so excited to announce this baby but unfortunately I am announcing my fifth angel baby in heaven.”
Last year, speaking to Daily Star Online, Alex opened up about the couple's hopes of having a baby together.
Reflecting on the heartbreaking experience of miscarriage, Alex explained: "We want a child so much, and we will have a child. We're focused and we love each other so much so it's a matter of time.
"There'll be more challenges but we'll get there."
The former Hollyoaks star added he plans to walk down the aisle with Nikki once they see their family grow.
He said: "We were waiting to have a baby first. We'll definitely get married, but it's like we're already married."
