Meanwhile, although there’s no word of the tot’s name just yet, it looks like Ferne will be sharing intimate details about her birth as she’s filming brand new reality show, First Time Mum. 

Speaking about the upcoming ITVBe 90-minute programme – which is due to air later this year – Ferne told OK! magazine: I really want my birth to be featured. But obviously I won’t be doing a Kourtney Kardashian and pulling my baby out myself!

‘There will definitely be bits of me in labour, though.’

Congrats again, Ferne! We know you’re going to make an amazing mum.
