Honeymoon baby! Nicky Hilton is about to become a first-time mum

Well, it seems Nicky Hilton has certainly been busy since returning from her honeymoon.

The socialite and heiress is expecting her first child with new husband, banking heir James Rothschild, it was confirmed today.

Hotel heiress Nicky married James in a lavish ceremony at London's Kensington Palace back in July, before heading to Botswana for a safari honeymoon.

According to People, the 32-year-old is "very excited" to become a mum and has been "feeling great" so far. 

Although she's kept quiet on social media about her pregnancy, we've no doubt there'll be a bump photo soon – the Hilton family were quick to share snaps of the expectant mum's recent wedding rather than wait for a magazine deal.

"They [Nicky and James] have just begun telling close friends and family," a source told People of the couple's pregnancy news, adding that the couple were "over the moon."

Nicky's older sister Paris, 34, was overjoyed to see her sibling walking down the aisle, saying she and James were "so loyal and in love."

Wonder if she'll get the nod for godmother?
