TOWIE Favourite Sam Faiers Pregnant With First Child
TOWIE favourite Sam Faiers and boyfriend Paul Knightley are expecting their first child.
The 24-year old, who has been dating Knightley for nine months, is thought to be three months pregnant.
The news comes just weeks after the pair announced they were moving in together, and a source close to the couple said they are ‘thrilled’ at the prospect of being parents.
Speaking to The Mirror, a close friend said:
"They are really thrilled and really looking forward to being first time parents together."
The pair began dating in October last year, after Sam met the property developer in an Essex bar.
The relationship followed a turbulent few months for the star who was diagnosed with Chron’s disease as well as overcoming heartache with her on-off relationship with co-star Joey Essex.
Sam recently opened up about her relationship with Paul and her desire to be a mum, telling OK! Magazine:
"I get asked about this all the time. I'm really looking forward to having a family, but I don't know if it will be 4.
"I can see marriage as a possibility. To be honest, we talk about kids more than we do about marriage, but as a couple we want the whole package."
