Mother and Baby

Sam Faiers confirms she is pregnant

The 24-year-old, who's best known for her role on 'The Only Way Is Essex', has revealed she's expecting her first child with property developer Paul Knightley, 26, via Instagram, using emojis of a baby and a heart. 

Sam's post confirmed recent rumours suggesting she and her boyfriend - who she's been dating for nine months - were set to become parents. 

A source previously said: "They are really thrilled and really looking forward to being first time parents together." 

Sam met the property developer last October shortly after splitting from on/off boyfriend Joey Essex, and is thought to be just over three months along in her pregnancy. 

Their happy news comes not long after Sam revealed they are preparing to move in together. 

She said: "It's not like he officially lives with me, but he's always at mine and it's really comfortable. I'm just about to get an extension put on my house and once that's done he'll move in. In the future we'll buy a house together." 

The reality TV star also admitted they'd recently discussed the possibility of getting married and having children. 

She shared: "I can see marriage as a possibility. To be honest, we talk about kids more than we do marriage, but as a couple we want the whole package."
