The TOWIE ladies open up about Sam Faiers’ pregnancy…

It’s an exciting time in Essex at the moment as former TOWIE star Sam Faiers recently announced she was pregnant with her first child.

‘I want to capture that moment’ Will Sam Faiers give birth to her first baby on screen?


The 25-year-old reality star is expecting a baby with boyfriend Paul Knightley, who she’s been in a relationship with for nine months. In fact, Sam is already five months into her pregnancy! But what do her TOWIE co-stars think to the news?

Speaking at Monday nights TV Choice Awards, Lydia Bright, Chloe Sims and Ferne McCann spoke about Sam’s exciting baby news.

‘She’s going to be an amazing mum! I’m absolutely over the moon that she’s expecting,’ gushed Ferne, 25, adding:

‘I saw her last night – all the girls came round – and my mum organised a roast and yeah, just really excited! She’s got a tiny little bump, it’s so cute!’

So was the news a shock for the three gals?

‘No, you’re just so happy for that person,’ revealed Ferne, who FYI, looked totally gorgeous in an orange culotte playsuit.

Hmm, we wonder how Sam’s ex boyfriend Joey Essex took the news? His cousin Chloe, 32, admitted: ‘I haven’t spoken to him about it but to be honest, I wasn’t shocked. I’ve always thought she was quite maternal and I knew she did want to have children. I’m really happy for her and I’m sure Joey is happy for her aswell.’

With a new series of TOWIE hitting our screens next month (We.Can’t.Wait!) it was only right to ask the TOWIE lasses what we could expect…

‘When we go away as a group, it’s guaranteed drama, typical TOWIE tears, break-ups, make-ups and a lot of fun,’ said Ferne, admitting that they would definitely miss Gemma Collins, who announced she was leaving the show last month after four years.

‘Personally I’ll miss her,’ said Lydia, whilst Ferne revealed: ‘She’s a huge personality and she was huge on the show so she’ll definitely be missed! I spoke to her this morning and I thought, ‘how am I not gonna have this every day?’.’

Lydia and Ferne also talked about their recent trek to Machu Picchu in Peru, where they raised over £55,000 for breast cancer awareness charity, Coppafeel.

‘It was hard going – one of the toughest things I’ve ever done in my life,’ admitted Ferne. Lydia added: ‘It was so, so hard. It was very intense with lots of challenges like the camping and the walking.’

Lydia also confessed to breaking down ‘lots’ whilst on the 10 day trek.

We just LOVE a catch-up with the TOWIE crew. Until next time ladies…
