But the reality star caused a bit of controversy last month when photos emerged that appeared to show her enjoying some Prosecco at a hairdresser’s appointment.

But after receiving a lot of online criticism, Amy took to Instagram to put the record straight explaining that it was NON alcoholic.

In a passionate message to her followers, Amy revealed she was ‘hurt’ that people would think she’d put her baby at risk and added: ‘Being a mum is something I’ve dreamt of for so long and I wouldn’t ruin it for an act of selfishness.’
