The reality TV star has put rumours to rest and spoken out about her pregnancy
Break ups, make-ups, cat fights… all staples on our favourite totally-not-guilty pleasure The Only Way Is Essex. And now we can add pregnancy to the mix – star Billie Faiers is three months pregnant.
The 24 year old, whose sister Sam is currently a housemate in Celebrity Big Brother, announced she’s expecting a baby with boyfriend Greg Shepherd.
‘We kept it to ourselves because I was so in shock,’ Billie exclusively told OK! magazine.
‘In my head I knew I was pregnant because I missed my period, which never happens, but I was too nervous to do the pregnancy test because suddenly my whole life was about to change.
‘[When I did take it] I saw a blue line appear! I called Greg and told him and we just cuddled. Greg cried and I got a lump in the throat.’
Billie’s family including sister Sam are ‘over the moon’ and the couple are excited to find out whether they’re having a boy or girl. The mum-to-be reveals she’s craving plain toast and tea, but ‘can’t even look at’ meat.
And, while the cast play out relationships, family feuds et al on the show, we won’t be seeing every detail of Billie’s pregnancy – and definitely not her birth on our screens.
‘Definitely not! The producers would be like: “Sorry, can we just hold on for a minute while we set this light up?” It will be the first TOWIE baby but it definitely won't be the first birth on TOWIE,’ she said.
It’s the latest excitement is celebrity baby land – rapper Plan B recently revealed he became a dad last year and enjoyed his first Christmas with his child.
