The 26-year-old TOWIE star announced she is 12 weeks pregnant, following fears she and her boyfriend. Bradley Wright, 25, wouldn’t be able to have children.
“[I am feeling] shocked but happy. I feel so overwhelmed and I keep waking up smiling.” she told OK! magazine.
“We’ve wanted a baby for so long, so we’re happier than we’ve ever been. We wanted one before Bradley went to prison but it didn’t happen.
“I didn’t think I could get pregnant.”
Childs and Wright first started dating two years ago, after meeting in a local pub. However, in October 2015 Wright was jailed for handling stolen goods and the couple separated.
They reunited in March and their baby is due on 2 May 2017.
