Millie MacKintosh is pregnant!

The former Made in Chelsea star has announced that she is expecting her first child with husband Hugo Taylor.

Revealing the exciting news in an interview with HELLO! magazine, the reality TV star confirmed that the pair are going to become parents next spring – and the pair even revealed the gender and due date for their little one!

The reality star couple let fans know that they are expecting a baby girl, confirming that Millie is due to give birth in May next year.

"Hearing her heartbeat for the first time with Hugo by my side was one of the most amazing moments of my life so far," said Millie, who is currently 14 weeks pregnant.

"I feel very lucky. I can't wait to feel that bond and for her to sleep on my chest and breathe in that baby smell."

Speaking about the scan of her little one to be, Millie said, "She's got long legs - Hugo thinks she’s going to be really tall like him."

"I'm so excited it's a girl," she added. "I would've been delighted with either, but when I found out we were having a girl, I suddenly realised this is what I really wanted."

The expectant parents are sure to love their new roles, having already got a few friends who have little ones themselves, including Spencer Matthews and Vogue Williams who welcomed son Theodore last year.

"Vogue has been great," said Millie revealing that she and Hugo got in some parenting practice by babysitting Theodore.

"Theodore is so sweet," she added. "It was hard when he cried and we were so relieved when he settled down to sleep. Maybe we need to do more babysitting practise, but everyone says it's different when it's your own."

We're sure Made in Chelsea fans will be so excited for the couple, who tied the knot last year in a romantic ceremony at Whithurst Park in West Sussex.

The pair had a lavish ceremony on the country estate, making it official a few days earlier in an intimate ceremony at Chelsea Town Hall.

Huge congratulations to the parents-to-be!
