There’s a new TOWIE baby on the way! Sam Faiers and boyfriend Paul Knightley are expecting their first child

It’s an exciting afternoon in the Now office as it’s been revealed that former TOWIE lady Sam Faiers is expecting her first child with boyfriend Paul Knightley.

Congratulations guys!

The 24-year-old, who has only been with property developer Paul for nine months, is apparently three months pregnant and is said to be ‘very excited’.

A source has told the Mirror: ‘They are really thrilled and really looking forward to being first time parents together.

We’re super happy for the gorgeous pair, who met last October on a night out in Essex.

And it turns out their Sam’s fan are super excited too:

In a recent interview, Sam and Paul spoke about their relationship, with Sam saying:

‘We talk about kids more than we do marriage, but as a couple we want the whole package.’

Talking to OK magazine, Sam also revealed: ‘I’m just about to get an extension put on my house and once that’s done he’ll (Paul) move in. In the future we’ll buy a house together.’

Over the past year Sam has had TONS of mummy practice being a doting auntie to sister Billie’s daughter Nelly. In fact we can’t get enough of those adorable vidoes Sam keeps on uploading to Instagram. No doubt Sam and Paul’s lil’ one is going to be just as cute!

Sam – who used to date Mark Wright – and Paul met at Essex restaurant Sheesh in Chigwell, last year, shortly after her split from Joey Essex.

But Paul has no desire to become famous like his pregnant blonde girlfriend Sam.

So who is this Paul guy?  Well according to reports he is ‘successful in his own right’ and ‘a genuine, down-to-earth guy.’

Sounds perfect for the lovely Sam!

Congrats guys! We can tell you’re going to make fabulous parents.

Aww! Sam Faiers says she can’t wait to have babies with boyfriend Paul Knightley
