Jacqueline can't wait to meet her son or daughter

Jacqueline Jossa really can’t wait to become a mum.

The pregnant EastEnders actress, 22, is due to give birth early next year but it’s clear that she’s already bonded with her little boy or girl.

Jac told her Twitter fans last night that her unborn child was being VERY active in her tummy and she was loving feeling the teeny kicks.

Aw!

‘My baby is wriggling like crazy right now!!!! Can’t wait to meet you little one 🙊☺️ #excitingtimes,’ Tweeted Jacqueline.

This isn’t the first time the gorgeous star – who’s expecting her first child with TOWIE‘s Dan Osborne – has posted about the movements in her stomach.

She’s previously said that the sensation ‘amazes’ her and that her tot’s been ‘tossing and turning’, which is ‘cute’, ‘important’ and ‘special’.

It seems Jac’s carrying a pretty animated kid in there. Imagine how much it’s going to be running around once it’s a bit older! Blimey…

Judging by her online updates, Jacqueline is going to be a totally devoted parent. But unfortunately, pregnancy hasn’t always been the easiest ride for her.

Last month, rumours starting swirling that she’d broken up with Dan, 23, after he posted the mysterious Tweet: ‘Relationships just do not seem to work.. 👎 😕.’

Neither have commented on the state of their romance but it appeared as though Jacqueline was getting pretty fed up of the speculation when she began ranting on Twitter at the weekend.

‘Sick of reading so much about my life, from "sources" that clearly don’t know anything. So much ballsh*t I can’t keep up,’ she fumed.

‘I hate feeling pushed into a corner, that I have to now speak about my private life to shut you all up. I am so bored of people talking about things they know NOTHING about.’

Eek!

Whatever the sitch is, Jac’s obviously still incredibly excited to welcome her son or daughter. She revealed on Saturday that she’s (*sobs*) getting ready to go on maternity leave.

‘Can’t Believe I will be filming my last scenes for Enders soon!! So crazy. Nearly 5 years of my life, amazing,’ said Jac, who’s played Lauren Branning since 2010.

We’re sure having her leave our screens will be worth it when we see her first baby snaps!
