Anna Williamson has confirmed she's expecting her second baby with husband Alex Di Pasquale.
The 37-year-old, who is married to 30-year-old fitness trainer Alex, told OK! magazine that she is ‘so pleased’ to discover that she is expecting for the second time.
The TV presenter, who is already mum to son Enzo, said: ‘I’m not getting any younger, so when we discovered I was pregnant, we were so pleased.’
The dating guru confirmed the happy news via Instagram, hilariously joking that her fuller figure was not a result of ‘eating all the pies’.

Alongside a picture of her gorgeous family, Anna wrote: ‘OK, so some of you have spotted my slightly fuller figure of late 😆 - I haven’t just been eating all the pies (but I have certainly consumed a fair few with cravings)
‘Well, there’s a reason...my lovely husband and I, and Vincenzo, are expecting our 2nd baby 👶 later in the year. We are absolutely overjoyed 💕
‘It’s been an important couple of months making sure this pregnancy 🤰 is healthy, that baby is well (it is 🙏) and that crucially my mental health is in good order - as those of you who know me, will know I had severe peri and post natal anxiety when I had Enzo.
‘I cannot thank the NHS Community Perinatal MH Team enough for their first class support and care 👌 an absolute game changer 🙌
‘It’s also helped that my wonderful bosses and colleagues at @e4grams @limepicturestv @celebsgodating have been BRILLIANT and so supportive welcoming the 1st agency baby into the fold ☺️ - for anyone who loves their job, it’s always so reassuring and gratefully appreciated to know you’re 100% supported and cared for. Best team and duty of care ever!’
Anna also joked with Celeb’s Go Dating co-star Tom Read Wilson that he ‘better get the nursery ready as its business as usual 😉’ in the dating agency.

When discovering she was the pregnant, Anna admits to OK! magazine that she did have a ‘freak out’, recalling her difficult pregnancy journey with her first child, Enzo.
She said: 'I did have a bit of a freak out. We didn’t have the best start to our parenting journey with Enzo.
‘I had bad pre-natal anxiety and post-natal depression and I suffered with birth trauma.
‘It was a really hard time for us. Physically I was healing but mentally I was having a pretty rough time. Alex had to bear the brunt of it all.’
Anna’s friends and followers have been quick to share messages of congratulations on her Instagram post.
TOWIE star Pete Wicks said ‘Congratulations Anna 🙌🏼♥️’, and Blue singer Lee Ryan wrote: ‘Ahhh amazing!!!’.
Others praised Anna for being so open and honest about post natal mental health.
One follower wrote: ‘Congratulations! And well done for continuing to shine a light on pre and post natal mental health x.’
Another added: ‘This is wonderful and brave. Especially considering your first experience. I just pray all is well and that you get that peace you need. it is there for the taking believe me. ❤️.’
Congratulations to Anna and Alex!
