The former TOWIE stars are due to become mums five days apart

Lydia Bright and Lucy Mecklenburgh have been through a lot together over the years – including growing up on The Only Way Is Essex.

But now, the two best friends, are going through their pregnancy journeys together.

And if that weren’t enough, Lydia, 29, has now revealed their babies are due just five days apart.

Sharing a picture of herself and Lucy at Lucy’s 28th birthday party, pressing their baby bumps against each other, Lydia – who has previously said her first child is due in February 2020 – wrote, ‘We have experienced a lot together but I have a feeling this is going to be our favourite adventure #5DaysApart #DoubleTrouble.’

Body image 🤰💕 . . . . Although trying to keep this under wraps especially whilst on holiday really wasn’t easy 😅 I’m now over 12 weeks and I’m starting to fall in love with & embrace my new, ever changing… ever expanding body. . I’m in awe of what my body is doing, creating another human! Yes 1 human I was worried with how big I got very quickly it was twins haha! 😅 . for the first time I feel content in myself and how I view my body. It feels like as soon as I became pregnant my priorities changed and I must admit this is definitely for the better. . My journey hasn’t been plain sailing the 1st 3 months have been pretty brutal and quite lonely as you can’t really talk about it & feel like your lying to everyone constantly. So now I’ve had a little more down time (mainly with my head down a toilet!🤢🤮) I’ve been writing a blog about my pregnancy journey so far and there’s no filter! I wanted to share my highs & LOWS!! I’m just finishing it and I’ll share the first instalment with you guys soon 😘🤰🥰 #1sttrimester #pregnancy #bodyimage #babybump
