Meanwhile, Billie previously revealed she suffered a "difficult" pregnancy as she struggled to sleep at night. 

"It’s really difficult getting comfortable at night. I’m up all night and I go to the toilet three to four times, so I have very broken sleep. The other morning I was awake from 4am and I couldn’t get back to sleep," she told OK! Magazine.

"When you don’t sleep it affects your whole mood and your day. I think it’s Mother Nature preparing me for those sleepless nights!"
