Chloe Lewis has given fans a first glimpse at her growing baby bump, just days after confirming she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Danny Flasher.
Taking to Instagram on Sunday evening, the former TOWIE star shared an black and white image of her exposed belly with her one million followers.
Captioning the shot, in which she is seen cradling her bump, she wrote: ‘I love you so much already.’
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Chloe delighted fans by announcing her pregnancy alongside an image of an ultrasound and the reveal date of ‘05.22.19’, which she captioned: ‘Half me, half you ♥️’.
The TV personality’s comment section was inundated with celebratory messages from well wishers, featuring the likes of close pal Rochelle Humes, MIC’s Rosie Fortescue and former co-star Lauren Pope.
This Morning host Rochelle, 30, penned: ‘Can’t wait to meet this beautiful baby’, while fashion blogger Rosie, 29, wrote: ‘Omg congratulations angel.’
TOWIE’s Lauren, 36, who like Chloe, recently left the series, shared: ‘Omg huge congratulations!!!’
The sweet reveal comes just weeks after the reality star insisted kids are definitely on the cards for the couple.
When quizzed about her thoughts on marriage and kids, the social media sensation teased to MailOnline: ‘You have to ask [Danny] that! I hope so, I’ve always wanted babies and marriage, so I’m sure it’ll be in the near future.
‘Being an auntie for now is amazing, it’s the best thing. I’m only an aunt and I feel like I’m a mum sometimes. You can give them back, that’s the good thing!’
The blonde beauty and Essex banker Danny have been in a relationship for two years, and while she likes to keep their romance out of the reality TV spotlight, she often treat fans to loved-up pictures from their romantic getaways.
Chloe is a doting auntie to her sister Abbey’s children, with the star often sharing images of her adorable nieces and nephews on her widely-followed social media platform.
The former musician rose to fame on ITVBe’s The Only Way Is Essex in 2015, where fans witnessed the demise of her seven-year romance with ex Jake Hall, who is now engaged to RHOC’s Missé Bequiri.
Chloe recently revealed she’s walked away from the reality TV for good as she ‘outgrew’ the series after years of being filled with ‘stress and anxiety’ over her past relationship.
She also stressed the difficulty in juggling life in front of the TV with her personal relationship.
The TV star explained to MailOnline: ‘I’m really grateful for the show, but I sort of outgrew it. I think when your relationship isn’t on the show, it’s very hard to do both. I just feel like it’s more important to have a happy personal life, so I just made the decision to leave.
‘I don’t regret it and I’m thankful for all the opportunities it’s brought me, but I just outgrew it.
‘When your personal life is not in it, it’s very hard. I’m not outspoken, so doing scenes and commenting on other people’s lives is just not me. I would find it really hard to go back, so I’m over it.’
Chloe, who previously revealed her banker beau Danny would never join reality TV, gushed over their life away from the spotlight.
She explained: ‘It’s his choice to stay away from the limelight. If he was in the public eye than we would naturally go to more events, but life is so much nicer having your own time away from it all.
‘It’s nice to come home and have normality. Being happy within myself, being with someone who is normal and being in a normal environment is so much nicer [than displaying her life on TV].’
