Inside UKs most expensive home as billionaire, 70 to become dad for 7th time

Phones4U billionaire John Caudwell is expecting his seventh child – his second child with former Olympian Modesta Vzesniauskaite.

The couple confirmed that they are expecting a “surprise” baby girl “very soon”.

After three years of struggling to conceive, the pair welcomed their son, William John, to the world back in 2021.

The billionaire businessman, aged 70, is already a father to Rebekah, aged 42, Libby, aged 34, Rufus, aged 25, Scarlett, aged 20, and Jacobi, aged 18.

Cyclist Vzesniauskaite, aged 39, also has an 11-year-old son Leonardo from her first marriage.

Caudwell announced the news on Twitter alongside a 3D baby scan, while asking for suggestions for the middle name.

The tweet read: “Our baby girl is due this month. Based on the latest scan, she's ready to come out soon! @Vzesniauskaite and I have a first name but aren't sure about a middle one.

“Feel free to suggest girls’ names that sound good with Caudwell. Libby, Rebekah and Scarlett are already taken!"

Caudwell and Vzesniauskaite split their time between their homes in Staffordshire, London and Monaco along with trips on their yacht Titania.

According to Stoke On Trent Live, he previously posted: "In amongst all the book launch interviews, @Vzesniauskaite and I also have some exciting personal news: we're expecting another baby. Come March, two years after the arrival of our first child together, William John, he and Leonardo will have a baby sister.

"This pregnancy was something of a surprise, especially as we tried for three years with William. But we are both so excited to meet our new daughter and for her to meet William, Leo and all her siblings.

"As @Vzesniauskaite says, dreams came true. Modesta is a wonderful mother. But, of course, raising a girl is very different from raising boys. I can’t wait to see her bonding with and parenting our much-longed-for daughter."

Caudwell and Vzesniauskaite split their time between their homes in Staffordshire, Monaco, trips on their yacht Titania, and at their £250 million mega-mansion in London.

The 45,000 square feet property includes extravagant features including a river with live fish swimming through a dining room and an indoor 'beautiful piece of art' car park.

In 2021, Caudwell told OK Magazine that he had to strip the property down because it was too "ostentatious" and he wanted the decor to be "tasteful".

But he said the room which required the least work is the gold-adorned ballroom, which he reckons is the largest privately-owned ballroom in London.

The property also has its own cinema room, car stacker lift, pool, and stunning Thai-inspired dining room.

She told Hello! magazine: “We weren’t planning to have another child at all so it was a beautiful surprise."
