Reality TV star Jess Wright carefully hid her bump from fans before she broke the news that she was expecting her first baby
The former TOWIE star kept her bun in the oven under wraps until she was ready to reveal her exciting news to the world.
In one crafty snap she used her dog to cover up her blossoming tummy as she posed with her parents and sister.
She wrote: “It’s a family affair” with a Christmas tree emoji beside the photo of the glamorous family
Jess announced her pregnancy by sharing a stunning black and white photograph of herself cradling her baby bump in a naked shoot.
The 36-year-old wrote on Instagram : “Beyond grateful for this blessing Due Spring 2022”
Her famous pals rushed to offer their congratulations after she shared the exciting update.
“Congratulations my darling,” fellow TOWIE star Amy Childs commented.
While Love Island’s Amber Davies penned: “Omg Jess!!!!!! Stop ! I am so happy for you”
And Vicky Pattison told Mark Wright’s sister: “OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!! Arghhhhh I can’t even cope!!!! Congrats mate”
A few weeks ago she dined at swanky Seasons Mayfair and made sure that all the snaps were from the waist up.
Another trip to Langan’s Brasserie where she was photographed sitting at an angle with a loose fitting leather jacket covering her stomach.
The happy news came shortly after Jess said she was ready to start trying for a baby after tying the knot.
Speaking to Heat magazine after her September wedding in Majorca, she said: “Yeah I mean, there is that kind of feeling now the wedding is done and it’s time to start trying for a child.
“So we’ll see what happens. No one is putting any pressure on me, but we’re definitely hoping to have kids at some point.”
Jess also recently spoke out about how she had decided to freeze her eggs after her mum Carol and her late Nanny Pat both started early menopause at 41.
While it hadn’t happened to Jess, she wanted to take precautions so she’d be able to have a baby if it did.
She told Grazia: “I knew it was a symptom so I was really, really panicking myself and spiralling into this ditch of ‘I’m going through menopause, or I’m going to start’.
“And then I was worrying if we’re going to be able to have children.”
Jess and William starred in their own ITVBe reality show Jess Wright: The Wedding, which followed them as they prepared for their big day and documented Jess’ egg-freezing journey too.
