Great British Bake Off‘s Manon Lagreve is pregnant!
The star, 29, has revealed the happy news that she’s expecting her first child with partner Luke Bennett.
And to make things even more exciting, she’s said that they’re planning to tie the knot in her native France next year.
She told Hello! magazine: “I grew up knowing I wanted to be a mum so I’m very happy and relaxed with being pregnant.
“The baby will be with me in the kitchen from the day it’s born.
“We are so happy to be having a summer baby and the due date is on Luke’s birthday – it feels like it’s meant to be.”
Manon, who starred in the Great British Bake Off in 2018, said she wants to raise her child to be bilingual.
“That is one of the best gifts we can give them, so we’re going to work hard at it,” she said.
“I’d like the baby to be French speaking at home and then use English outside the home.
“Luke is doing really well with his learning, too.”
Manon added it will be “nice” to have the child at her wedding.
She said: “All of my best friends are either pregnant or just had a baby so their children will be there too – I’m going to need lots of nannies on the day!”
Manon was sent home from Bake Off during the quarter final after failing to impress with her Danish baking skills, despite her ties to Denmark.
She said at the time: “I love Denmark, I have been twice to Copenhagen, and my best friend is Danish but none of that helped me! I do have a good relationship with Denmark and know it well, and I was hoping I could have made my friend proud, but she has now forgiven me!
“Every week I remained in the tent was a bonus and to be a quarter finalist, well that for me was a huge personal achievement. I didn’t make it to Patisserie week, and that’s a shame as that is what we French are known for!
“I so wanted to get to that particular week as it would have made my parents so proud, but it was not to be, c’est la vie!”
