When did Kara announce her pregnancy?

Last October, the former Strictly Come Dancing star announced she was pregnant with baby number two.

At the time, she told Hello Magazine: “I think this year has brought so many things in different ways. At the beginning of the year I was due to start a play and now I’m at home in a little cocoon and pregnant.

“We really wanted a sibling for Frey so we said ‘If it happens, it happens, let’s go with the flow’ and it happened much quicker than we expected.”

Kara also revealed that she found out she was expecting in May.

At the time, Kara added that she hopes her two sons will be as close as her and her sister Hannah Tointon.

She said: “Hannah and I have such a close bind, so now I’m thinking how lovely for Frey to have a brother. I’ll be outnumbered with Marius and two boys but bring it on.”
