Congratulations are in order!

Former TOWIE star Lydia Bright revealed her pregnancy last month, also confirming that she had split from the unborn tot's father Lee Cronin.

Speaking at her gender reveal party, held in the garden of her parents' Essex home, Lydia broke the news that she's set to welcome a little girl into the world.

She told Hello!: "Oh my gosh it's so exciting, I've just found out I'm having a little girl! I wasn't bothered either way, girl or boy, but I do think that now I know it's a girl it's that little bit more special."

The star also opened up about her pregnancy cravings and admitted that her usually healthy diet has gone to pot since becoming pregnant.

She said: "All I wanted was pasta, bread, things like that. Stodge. Constantly! And I now can't eat chicken, eggs or milk – I can't drink water because it makes me feel sick. I can only drink fizzy drinks. It's so weird."
