TOWIE’s Sam Faiers reportedly refused six figure sums from magazines to break the news of her second pregnancy and cover the birth.
Sam, 26, announced last week that she is expecting her second child with husband Paul Knightley.
But unlike her first pregnancy she is keen to keep this one much more under wraps, by steering away from the media.
Rather than take a magazine deal to reveal the news of her second pregnancy, Sam posted a cute photo on Instagram holding her son Paul on her bump.
She posted a comment along with the photo that read: “Words can’t describe how excited we are to meet you baby. We love you soo much already. #babynumber2 #2under2.”
But we may not hear anymore about her pregnancy for a long time, as she reportedly wants to keep her life more private.
A source close to Sam told MailOnline: “Samantha has lived her life in the public eye over the past couple of years and she’s now decided to take a step back from any publicity around the birth of her second child.
“She has one pre-booked TV appearance next month but other than that she doesn’t have any plans to discuss the pregnancy with the media.”
Even if she shies away from TV appearances the star has plenty of projects to keep her occupied.
The source continued: “Samantha is extremely busy with her online fashion business All Bits London and is currently focusing on its expansion along with working on her new organic skincare range, which is launching later this year.”
Sam recently told MailOnline that she became broody after her sister had her second child.
She said: “We do want a big family, and when Billie had her second baby, Arthur, it made me broody.
“It made me all ‘ohhh I want a newborn!’ But I think there should be a three or four year age gap between my children.
“Plus we are really just enjoying baby Paul right now!”
What do you think they’ll name their second child?
