Millie Mackintosh says husband Hugo Taylor is tapping into her pregnancy symptoms.

The former Made In Chelsea star, 30, and her husband, 33, are expecting a girl in May.

Mackintosh told Hello! magazine: “Pregnancy is very bonding…

“I talk to the baby a lot, and Hugo does a little bit, but I think it’s harder for guys – it’s a very different experience for them, and I think their connection comes, really, when the baby arrives.

“He’s also had back pain – but that’s more to do with helping lift me up from the sofa!”

Mackintosh, who was previously married to rapper Professor Green, showed off the nursery she has prepared for the baby in her west London home.
