Amy Childs has surprised fans with some very happy news.
The TV star – who found fame on reality series The Only Way Is Essex a number of years ago – has revealed that she’s pregnant with her second child.
‘My partner and I are delighted to announce that Polly will soon be welcoming a little brother or sister into the world 👶🏼💙💗,’ she wrote on picture-sharing site Instagram.
‘We are beyond excited! #babynumbertwo #halfwaythere.’
Amy accompanied her announcement with a stunning black and white photo.
In the snap, the pretty Essex-based mum displays her growing baby bump as she cuddles her firstborn while wearing white underwear.
While her caption let admirers know that she’s already reached the 20-week stage of her pregnancy, she made it clear that she’s declined to find out the little one’s gender.
Amy also decided not to reveal the identity of the child’s father.
Obviously delighted to hear that Amy is expanding her family, hundreds left kind comments on the sweet social media status.
Amy’s former co-star Sam Faiers – the star of the Mummy Diaries who became a mum for the second time herself on 11 November – led the way when it came to celebrity well-wishers.
‘Congratulations,’ the 27-year-old wrote before adding two bright red love heart emojis.
Another of Amy’s followers added: ’Beautiful photo and congratulations to the both of you ❤.’
‘Fabulous photo darling… you and Polly look beautiful as always.. beyond excited for baby number 2! What a little bundle of joy that’ll be,’ a third Instagram admirer gushed.
‘Polly a big sister I can’t cope! Beyond cute! 😘😘.’
The revelation comes less that a year after 27-year-old Amy gave birth to her first child, her daughter Polly, with her former boyfriend Bradley Wright. The adorable tot was born at 6:24am on Sunday 20 April.
Amy confirmed her split from Bradley six weeks after Polly’s arrival by releasing a statement through her representative.
