Fearne Cotton pregnant . How many times have we heard this over the past couple of years, only to find it was just another pesky internet rumour? Well, this time it's true! The Radio 1 Dj is expecting her first child with Jesse Wood, the son of Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood.
The 30-year-old made the announcement on her official blog, saying, "Jesse and I are very happy to announce we are having a baby.We are over the moon, morning sickness aside (me, not Jess) and looking forward to the little Cotton Woods arrival". She later told her 3.5 million Twitter followers, "Jesse and I are very happy to announce we are having a baby". Cotton did not reveal how far along in her pregnancy she was, though added, "I sighed a big sigh of relief now I'm able to tell people. I was really overwhelmed with all the messages yesterday". The Bristol born DJ was congratulated by a number of celebrity friends almost immediately, with Ellie Goulding tweeting, "oh my god!! Congrats Fearne!!!!!!". Fearne's wacky Celebrity Juice co-host Keith Lemon tweeted, "I am so happy for you Fearne. Honestly. Greatest news ever. Can't wait to see your milk trucks. Love Keith x". A spokesperson for Radio 1 said, "We couldn't be happier for Fearne and Jesse following the news of their pregnancy". Cotton - one of the station's foremost presenters - is likely to take maternity leave from her daily weekday slot as well as her other roles at the Bbc, though the spokesman added, "A decision on Fearne's maternity cover will be taken in due course".
Jesse - a model and bass player - once dated Kate Moss and was previously married to the model Catherine 'Tilly' Boone in 2003, before divorcing.
