Sam Faiers is officially a mummy-to-be, confirming the fabulous news in THIS picture....

Just like show business, there is absolutely no news like baby news.

And you might as well call us the stalk that got the cream, because if we’re chuffed about any baby news today it’s this one here…Sam Faiers has officially announced she is pregnant!!!

Yes, sources confirmed this on Friday but now the TOWIE gal has confirmed the news herself! *Attempts to suppress the overwhelming urge to shout YAY….fails*

Sam, 24, took to Instagram on Sunday night to post a picture of herself and 26-year-old boyfriend of nine months, Paul Knightley– which would be a totally normal post if it wasn’t for the BABY emoji selected to accompany the snap! This is the 21st century people, we announce things in emojis now….

The post has inevitably exploded with the online equivalent of baby confetti (again, it’s the 21st century people), with almost a thousand comments, all full of well wishes for the expectant couple- ‘Congratulations ❤❤’, ‘So pleased for you, take care xxxx’, ‘Aww congrats gonna be one beautiful child you cuties ❤’. Hang on a sec…ARE WE GETTING BROODY?!

The Emouncment (emoji announcement, it will catch on just trust us) follows several bun-in-the-oven rumours after a source told The Mirror that the couple ‘are really thrilled and really looking forward to being first time parents together’. And it looks like mystery source has hit the nail on the head, well done mystery source…

Although we hate to take the shine away from Mr Mystery Source, it was pretty clear Sam had the pitter-patter of tiny feet in mind- at the start of this month she told Ok! ‘In the future we’ll buy a house together…We talk about kids more than we do marriage, but as a couple we want the whole package’.

We think Sam will take to motherhood like a duck to water, especially after having bag fulls of experience with one-year-old niece Nelly who makes plenty of appearances on Auntie Sam’s Instagram account doing super cute things and wearing super cute clothes.

Congrats Sam and Paul, we’re over the moon for you! Anyway, if we’re all announcing things in Emojis now….. *Hamburger emoji*

Cute alert! Sam Faiers’ video of niece Nelly is the most adorable thing you’ll see today
