Fans left touching messages, with one writing: “Aww he looks like you… I think he has your mouth. So precious.”

Lucy, 28, has been keen to share her pregnancy journey with fans. The former TOWIE star revealed in December that she’s gained more than two stone in the course of her pregnancy – but she said she is keen to embrace those changes.

Can’t stop looking at this. See you soon little man!!!

During an Instagram Q&A, she told fans she had accepted getting a little heavier. “Weight gain is inevitable for a healthy pregnancy. Focus on you and bubba, not the scales.”

She has also shared plenty of pictures of her growing bump on Instagram. These included a shoot for OK! magazine, in which she admitted there had been “ups and downs” with the pregnancy hormones.

But she said she had enjoyed her first shoot with her “little man” and certainly looked glamorous in the pictures.

Lucy also shared a bikini shot of her bump last month while on holiday in Cape Town.

She has been realistic about the challenging parts of being pregnant, including stretch marks and sun sensitivity. But there was no doubting her excitement over the scan. Good luck Lucy, we are sure you will be a marvellous mum.
