Katie Chapman is set to miss the first half of Arsenal Ladies' season because she is seven months pregnant with her third child.

The 30-year-old is already mapping out her return to action, which she hopes will be sometime in June.

Everyone at Arsenal would like to congratulate Katie, her husband Mark and two boys Harvey and Riley on their fantastic news.
