Jacqueline Jossa has said husband Dan Osborne will be beside her when she gives birth, and urged fans not to jump to conclusions about their marriage.
The former EastEnders actress told OK! magazine she’ll have both Dan and her mother in the delivery room when she welcomes her second child – despite ongoing speculation about her relationship with Dan.
She is currently 32 weeks pregnant.
Jacqueline and Dan’s marriage hit the headlines last week amid speculation of a rocky patch.
But she’s insisted: “Dan will be with me. I’m going to stick to who I had last time, so I just had my mum and Daniel.
“I might have Daniel’s mum, it just depends where we all are.”

The soap star also played down the marriage rumours, saying nobody knows the full story apart from her and Dan.
She added: “People shouldn’t jump to any conclusions and I’m in the last few weeks of my pregnancy so I don’t need the stress.”
Jacqueline, 25, married former TOWIE star Dan, 26, last year; they’re parents to three-year-old daughter Ella, while Dan also has son Teddy, four, from a previous relationship.
However, last week it was alleged Dan had moved out of the family home amid claims his busy work schedule had caused tension in the marriage.
Dan previously slammed claims the rumoured rocky patch was as a result of him working abroad, after claims his recent fitness bootcamp with pals in Marbella had been the issue.
There were also reports – which Dan vehemently denied – that he’d been using Love Island’s Gabby Allen, 25, as a shoulder to cry on amid his alleged marital woes.
He tweeted last week: “Whenever a relationship goes through tough times etc.. why is it always the man that gets stick..? When in ‘public eye’, worst part is, the people trying to give me stick etc are people that DO NOT KNOW ME, do not know the situation.. so can please [bleep] off…. appreciated.
“It had absolutely nothing to do with me working away, going away anywhere or anything to do with me having a laugh with friends on a boat… Suppose it makes an interesting read for the viewers though eh.”
Jacqueline, meanwhile, appeared on ITV’s Loose Women on Friday, where she briefly touched on the reports but did not dwell on them.
“I’m good, honestly I am fine,” she said.
“I think when stuff goes on at home it’s not normal to be everywhere, and also it’s not necessarily true or the reasons why you’re not getting on at the moment.”
She also spoke to the Sunday Mirror over the weekend, saying motherhood had made her stronger, and she doesn’t let rumours bother her.
“You become so hardcore nothing hurts,” she said. “You have such a strong backbone when you have kids and the only thing that does hurt is when anyone is saying anything about them.
“You form a layer of like, ‘I am a mother and I will protect my child.'”
