Amy Childs has confirmed that she is expecting her first child with on-off boyfriend Bradley Wright.
The former TOWIE star revealed to OK! that she is 12 weeks pregnant, having reunited with Bradley in March after he was released from jail.
Amy told the magazine: “I feel so overwhelmed and I keep waking up smiling.”
“We’ve wanted a baby for so long so we’re happier than ever.”
The boutique owner explained that she had hoped to conceive before her 25-year-old partner was imprisoned for handling stolen goods, but feared she was unable to have children naturally because at the time she did not fall pregnant.
“We wanted [a baby] before Bradley went to prison but it didn’t happen,” she confessed. “I didn’t think I could get pregnant.”
“We’d been together for nine months and I came off the pill [that] summer and I thought it might take me ages. I was taking folic acid but it didn’t happen. I was really panicking.”
Having first met in an Essex pub in 2014, the 26-year-old reality star split with Bradley last October after discovering he had been sentenced to 16 months in jail.
Upon being released early for good behaviour, Bradley went about winning Amy back.
