‘I think we’ll be good parents together,’ the 43-year-old told The Mirror.

‘Alan’s got a lot of time and patience. I just think this will complete us. It’s the happiest I’ve ever been.’

The baby will be the Essex star’s third child as she shares Kai, 21, and Jody, 15, with ex-husband Kevin Jenkins.

But despite the excitement of adding another little one to her brood, Danniella – who has struggled with drug addiction – admits that her past will always follow her around.

‘I could win 12 Oscars and I would still be known as the cokehead girl off Eastenders…’ she candidly admitted.

After checking into rehab in Spain earlier this year, the expectant mum credits 34-year-old new beau Alan for her new found happiness, admitting: ‘I’m a cocaine addict . If I’m going to find coke, I’m gonna climb a mountain to find it.

‘But I can’t worry about that. My life is different now. My demons have been put to bed. Now I can move forward.’

Danniella’s pregnancy announcement comes just days after she denied claims she was expecting on Good Morning Britain.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star told hosts Kate Garraway and Jeremy Kyle: ‘If you believe everything you read in the papers, apparently today I’m pregnant’, before adding: ‘I’m just fat at the moment… because I’m happy.’

Well, congrats on the happy news Danniella!
