Katie Piper thought she was pregnant with a son
Now‘s columnist Katie Piper has announced she’s expecting a daughter.
The 30-year-old campaigner, who was attacked with acid in 2008, is thrilled that her pregnancy is a great conversation starter.
‘The other night I was at a charity ball and everyone I met wanted to talk to me about the baby, not about my burns and recovery. I thought, “Hallelujah”,’ says Katie.
She and boyfriend James, who does not want to be in the limelight, can’t wait for the arrival of their little one, who they had thought was a boy.
‘James and I are similar in that we’re very involved with our families,’ Katie, 30, tells Hello!
‘He makes me feel so loved and when I get insecure he’ll tell me that, to him, I’m not burnt, I’m all these other lovely things which he’ll remind me of.
‘That’s the great thing about having a child together – I feel like I have a new start and I can leave the past behind.’
