'Yessss congratulations guys ❤️,' added former Corrie star Ryan Thomas, while TOWIE star and songstress Megan McKenna wrote, 'Congratulations Ashley! 💙💙💙'

When Ashley confirmed news of her pregnancy back in July last year, she admitted she had never been huge on the idea of having children.

"I've never been that maternal. When friends have been like: 'I want to meet someone, settle down and have children,' I never felt the same. I guess I've been a free spirit," she told Hello! magazine.

"It's been such a 360-degree shift for me. From the moment I found out, it felt so right."
