Amy Childs surprised her fans when she announced last week that she’s expecting her second child.
Now the former TOWIE star, who appeared in Celebrity Big Brother in 2011, has admitted it was as just as much of a shock to her, as she conceived quickly with her new partner.
“My pregnancy wasn’t planned but it’s a lovely surprise,” she told OK! magazine.
She said of the father – who wishes to stay out of the spotlight: “We did speak about it, but we didn’t think it would happen so quickly.
“We’re both really excited about it now, though.”
Amy already has a daughter, Polly, with ex boyfriend Bradley Wright. They split up not long after Polly was born.
Now the reality star, who won a Celebrity Mum Of The Year Award in 2017, said it’s “crazy” that she’ll have such a short age gap between her children.
Her next one is due in September, when Polly will be 16 months old.
Amy shared her happy news with her 552k followers last week, as she passed the 20 weeks pregnant mark.
“My partner and I are delighted to announce that Polly will soon be welcoming a little brother or sister into the world. We are beyond excited! #babynumbertwo#halfwaythere,” she wrote.
Hundreds of her fans sent their congratulations, with some wondering how she kept her secret quiet for so long.

Amy said she and her mystery man wanted to share the “precious time” together for a little while before announcing their news, particularly as he has no interest in being in the public eye.
But some eagle-eyed fans did think they’d spotted a baby bump in a picture she’d posted on Mother’s Day where she is wearing a skin-tight white dress.
Congrats to Amy and her partner!
