This is so lovely!
TV presenter and author Katie Piper is already the proud mum to three-year-old daughter Belle. And now she’s announced exciting news that she’s going to be adding her to brood with baby number 2!
The 33-year-old revealed that she’ll be adding to her family with husband Richard Sutton whilst paying tribute to her other half in a sweet Instagram post.
The post revealed a gorgeous snap of her on the cover of Hello! magazine debuting her bump. The picture was shared alongside the caption “’I’m so excited to tell you all next Father’s Day my husband will be celebrating with two children!!”
Katie Piper Baby Number 2 – the star reveals all
The philanthropist has also spoken about how different her pregnancy is with baby number 2. She said, “Becoming a mum has enriched my life in ways I never imagined, and I feel so thankful to be experiencing that again.
“I have felt really nauseous and tired with this pregnancy and don’t recall it being that way with Belle. But I don’t want to sound like I’m moaning because we’re over the moon and really excited.”
But Katie also admitted the constant speculaton from family and friends over whether she’d have another child has been difficult.
She said, “I’ve been asked so many times if we were planning to have another child.
“The truth is, we were trying for about a year and a half, but that’s such a private and emotional thing when you’re going through it.”
So is Katie hoping for another girl to add to the Piper household? She admitted, “I really don’t have a preference, but I have a special bond with my own sister Suzy, who’s also pregnant, so another girl would be lovely.”
But it seems hubby of two years Richard might feel differently. Katie revealed that he was more keen on having another man in the house. She told the mag how Richard would “love a son to play football with” – but of course, that both will be “thrilled either way.”
Her previous pregnancy struggles…
The heart-warming news comes after Katie previously admitted she feared she wouldn’t be able to have more children.
In 2015, Katie revealed her fears that health problems could keep her from conceiving naturally.
She told The Mirror, ‘I got pregnant with Belle really easily, but now I’ve got a problem with my oesophagus.
She even revealed that she anticipated having to adopt instead of being able to conceive naturally. “There aren’t enough vitamins to help me make a baby. That is why I have become so skinny. I think adopting is the best option.”
“There are a lot of kids with burns and parents who have neglected them, and I would like to adopt, to give back a little.”
Her adorable family unit…
The new baby will clearly be joining a deliriously happy family unit with Katie, Richard and Belle. Seaking to the MailOnline previously, the star couldn’t hide her happiness as she spoke of her contented family life with devoted hubby Richard Sutton and the close bond they share.
She said: “This sounds so cheesy, but he’ll be like “what are you wearing?” and I’ll be like “I’m gonna wear cream”, and he’ll be like “I’m gonna wear my cream jumper then!”‘
