Big Brother's Laura Carter confirms she is expecting her first child
Big Brother's Laura Carter has confirmed she is expecting her first child.
The reality TV star, who appeared on the Channel 5 show in 2016, struck up a romance with Marco Pierre White Junior last year.
But while their romance was short lived, Laura quickly fell for her current boyfriend Tony - and now the pair are expecting their first child together.
The 31 year old posted on Instagram:
"So at 16 weeks & nearly half way through I think it's about time I share our little surprise with the world!
“They say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas but not this time! We brought something back with us..... We're having a baby!
“After years of being mates, (and we've defo had some arguments, mainly him shaking his head at my antics) (turns out he loved me really) no I'm joking, in all seriousness I think if anyone had told us we would end up together we'd have thought it was crazy...but turns out it was our fate and we are both so ridiculously happy!
“I keep having to pinch myself....but this is real, it's actually happening.”
The mum-to-be said she was "so excited" as she thanked her family and friends for keeping the secret.
“I'm so excited to be a mummy & have already had the most incredible support from all our family & friends.
“Thanks to those who have kept our secret!!! You all get major brownie points for the roles of godmother/father...actually no, scrap that, I can't cope with the thought of a christening...but there's definitely gonna be a party!! I won't have had a drink for 9 months!
