Danielle's news has sparked a flurry of congratulations on her social media. 

One fan wrote, "Congratulations to you all. Lovely news" another fan put, "Oh Dan  congratulations to you all! So soo happy for you and Tommy, the best news!! Orla is going to be the best big sister xxx"

While a third fan said, "Congrats! Had a guess a few weeks ago!"

Danielle hasn't yet revealed if she's having a boy or girl (opens in new tab)or her exact due date (opens in new tab) but fans can simply expect a summer arrival.

Danielle previously opened up last year on her endometriosis (opens in new tab)diagnosis in 2018, "I remember walking out of that appointment and I was sitting in the car park just crying on my own."

Six months later she met Tom, with the couple moving in together after just two-weeks, and six week's later Danielle discovered she was pregnant with Orla who was born in May 2020 (opens in new tab).

Danielle hinted at having another baby after she got married, she said, "Even on our wedding day, people asked me, 'Are you going to be trying for another soon?'

"It’s always, 'When is the next?' We think next year would be a good time. There’s a three-year gap between me and my sister, and I really liked that when we were growing up. Orla would absolutely love to be a big sister."
