Charlotte Crosby has revealed she is expecting her first child with partner Jake Ankers, taking to Instagram to share the exciting news. 

The Geordie Shore star opened up about her feelings about her pregnancy in a heartfelt YouTube video, as she prepped to tell her friends about the big news.  

Recording a touching video in a pool in Dubai, Charlotte said, "It's four days until I tell Holly Hagan and Sophie Kasaei. I can't tell you how hard it has been keeping this from two people who know us better than anyone - and especially Sophie because I'm with her all the time! 

"I don't know how I've done it! There's been a couple of times where she's actually been guessing and she's asked us a couple of times 'You haven't been out in a while, are you pregnant?' and I'm like, No, I just haven't fancied it."

Charlotte's happy news comes six years after she suffered a life-threatening ectopic pregnancy which she revealed she could have died from. In candid interviews and posts she confessed she had suffered the terrible loss after her breakup from on-again, off-again co-star Gary Beadle.  

Charlotte found love with her new beau after breaking up with boyfriend Liam Beaumont last summer. The reality star was said to have moved into Jake's home towards the end of last year. 

Charlotte's friends and fans have shared their excitement over the news of her pregnancy.
