Rachel, 32, announced her pregnancy in May and said she was delighted at the prospect of becoming a parent.

She has previously revealed she was very keen to start a family with Alex, although she was unsure what kind of mother she would be.
She said: "We'd absolutely love to have children. I think having children is the most amazing thing.
'I don't think I can tell what kind of mum I'd be until I go through it. It's such a life-changing thing. But I do have a little niece and nephew so I can just about change a nappy. Alex would be a great dad - he's very hands-on."
