Zoe Hardman has ended the year with some lovely news – she’s expecting baby number two!
The Take Me Out: The Gossip star revealed her pregnancy via Instagram on Friday, showing off her blossoming baby bump in a happy family picture.
Posing with husband, rugby player Paul Doran Jones, and their daughter, Luna, she pointed at her midriff to ensure no one was in any doubt about her baby news!
Zoe told fans: “SO. Some pretty exciting news this end. For the last 5 months I’ve been growing another tiny human.”
She then joked she’ll have her hands full next year, with two little ones under two!
“We are all so thrilled about it and can’t wait to meet the smallest member of the Doran Jones/Hardman clan come spring. The two under two club here we come!! Happy Christmas you wonderful bunch.”
Fans flocked to leave celebratory messages for the couple, with one saying: “Huge congratulations to you both. The 2 under 2 club is fab fun. Have a great Christmas.”
Another joked: “You are brave! Congratulations!”
Zoe and Paul announced the birth of daughter Luna in September 2016, with a touching message posted by Zoe to Instagram.
It read: “Now I know what perfection is. We love you so much.”
While Zoe has called motherhood the “best job” she’s ever had, she admitted after Luna’s birth that she found labour a “traumatising” experience.
She told Hello! magazine that her initial plan was to have a water birth, but Luna ended up being delivered with forceps instead.
“I felt really quite traumatised afterwards. It was hardcore. It took me a while to process it. I cried a lot about it,” she said.
Zoe married rugby player Paul in July this year, walking down the aisle in Ibiza in front of pals including Zara and Mike Tindall.
Paul’s best friend, fellow rugby star James Haskell was best man, while James’ girlfriend, Chloe Madeley, was also among the onlookers.
As well as being dad to Luna, Paul has daughter Isla from a previous relationship.
