Couldn't be more excited to start a family with this babe. It's gonna be a hell of a ride @nicolejcombs"
Nicole confirmed the couple are expecting a son, and he is due this spring.
She wrote on her page: "this may be the best year yet baby BOY combs coming spring 2022!! we are so incredibly excited & thankful (sic)"
Nicole appears to be enjoying a happier start to 2022 than she did in 2021, when she was struck down with coronavirus, during which she faced "brutal" symptoms.
She said at the time: "I wish I was like those people that just lost their smell or taste or just didn't even know they had. But no, I've had all the symptoms, except for a fever. It's beat me up.
"It's brutal. But I am on the up and coming and I am feeling great these last two or three days and hopefully, I test negative soon."
Luke and Nicole married in August 2020 at their Florida home.
He wrote on social media afterwards: "Yesterday was the best day of my life. I got to marry my best friend. I love you @nicohocking, here's to forever."
Earlier this month, Luke revealed he was putting the "finishing touches"
to his third album, after completing his 'What You See Is What You Get'
tour last month.
He said: "This tour finally closes the long strange chapter of my last album. I'm taking a few weeks off and then we're putting the finishing touches on LC3. (sic)"
