Sam Faiers announces she's expecting baby number two
Sam Faiers and partner Paul Knightley are expecting their second child together.
Sam Faiers' Mummy Diaries is about to get a new chapter, after the reality star announced she's expecting her second child.
The former star The Only Way Is Essex is already mother to 18-month-old baby Paul with partner Paul Knightley, but took to Instagram on Wednesday (05Jul17) to tell fans the couple will soon be further extending their family.
Alongside a picture in which she was seen showing off her burgeoning bump in a white crop top and knickers while holding baby Paul, Sam wrote: "Words can't describe how excited we are to meet you baby. We love you soo much already. #babynumber2 #2under2."
The happy news comes after Sam admitted she and Paul were hoping to have a large family, telling Closer magazine: "I'd love to have more babies! Paul and I want five or six kids in the end. I want one soon as I think two years is a nice age gap."
Sam's sister Billie Faiers also left two years between her eldest daughter Nelly and son Arthur, who was born in March.
It remains to be seen whether or not Sam lets cameras follow her second pregnancy. After leaving TOWIE, Sam was given the chance to front her own reality show Sam Faiers: The Baby Diaries, which premiered in February 2016, before following that with Sam Faiers: The Mummy Diaries in October 2016.
She decided she wanted to document her journey into parenthood in a bid to help other first-time mothers navigate the tricky waters, but acknowledged in an interview with Hello! magazine that actually becoming a mother is a very personal experience.
"Nothing can prepare you for motherhood, no matter what books you read, what online blogs you read, what people tell you," she admitted. "You do it your own way. When you're a parent you find your feet instantly – it's that mother instinct."
