Ferne McCann CONFIRMS she’s pregnant with her second child
Ferne McCann has confirmed she’s pregnant with her second child.
Back in January, it was reported the former TOWIE star, 32, was expecting a baby with her fiancé Lorri Haines, 31, six months after announcing their engagement.
Now, she’s revealed the rumours are true, while gushing about her hopes to have a girl, a water birth at home and an ‘unusual’ name for her impending arrival.
Ferne and Lorri told OK! Magazine they’ve chosen not to find out the baby’s gender and that they ‘don’t believe’ in due dates, but that she’s set to give birth in the summer.
She gushed: ‘I would love a girl, just because I’ve got my girl’s name and I feel like a girl mum because I’ve got Sunday. I can only see myself with girls.’

Elsewhere, she said: ‘I would love to have a home birth and I’ve been told many times that I’m the perfect candidate. I had a smooth and lovely birth with Sunday and I did the majority of my labour at my mum’s house. It was just the delivery that I did at the hospital. I would love to have the pool, but Lorri’s worried about the mess.’
Ferne also told the publication: ‘We can’t have your average top 10 in the UK names. I love unusual, but not weird. I’m firing some names at Lorri and he’s like, “No, no.” Sunday comes up with some really good names actually.’
The TV personality and her businessman partner are filming their journey to second-time parenthood for her First Time Mum reality show on ITVBe.
Ferne has a daughter Sunday, five, from a previous relationship with jailed acid attacker Arthur Collins. Lorri also has a son the same age as Sunday with his ex partner.
They met during a trip to Dubai just over one year ago and he proposed during a romantic holiday to France in July.
Earlier this year, it emerged Ferne was pregnant again, with a pal telling The Sun: ‘Ferne is over the moon. From the moment she met Lorri she knew she wanted to marry him and have his kids.
‘They’re both ready to commit and are looking forward to their future together.’
MailOnline contacted a spokesperson for Ferne at the time.

Ferne has made no secret of her desire to start a family with her partner of a year, saying she wanted a baby before the couple started planning their wedding.
Speaking in September after announcing her engagement, Ferne told Closer magazine: ‘I haven’t thought too much about wedding plans, we made the decision that we would like to have another baby first.
‘I’d love for Sunday to have a sibling, and extend and grow our family. I really want a baby now, I’m so ready, but every baby is a miracle, and it will happen when it’s meant to be.’
Looking to the future, Ferne said she definitely wants to have more children and joked about having as many as 10 kids, adding that she wants to move to the countryside by the time she is 40.
Last month, Ferne wrapped up warm in a black padded coat amid claims she’s expecting, as she enjoyed a whirlwind trip to Paris for her pal Ellis Ranson’s 30th birthday.
Posting to her Instagram, the star told her 2.9million followers that the whirlwind one-night trip was ‘needed’ and left her with a ‘huge sense of contentment’.
Opening up, she penned: ‘No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. A few months ago I said to Lorri & my close ones I don’t know if I’m ever going to feel fun again.
‘To laugh again and to feel back to my normal self. I just couldn’t see past this cloud. I’ve realised that it takes time. Time to heal & to let the storm pass, it’s not going to happen over night.

‘Spending quality time with my closest ones in Paris and then returning home to my baby girl & fiancé this weekend has left me feeling a huge sense on contentment.
‘It was only for one night but it was needed. Oh to laugh again…it really is the best remedy.
‘So believe me if you’re going through the worst time where you can’t see a time where you will ever smile again let alone laugh. I promise you this time will pass .’
Ferne looked stunning as she posed for shots in front of the Louvre and gave fans an insight into her time away.
A few days earlier, Ferne wore the same black padded coat and a bright pink beanie as she shared another post on her pal’s birthday trip.
She looked like she was having a great time with the group as they caught the Eurostar and visited the Eiffel Tower.
Ferne dressed perfectly for the chilly weather in the stylish jacket which she teamed with a black and white scarf, leggings and comfy boots.
Ferne added another pop of colour to her look with a fuchsia bag that matched her hat as she flashed the peace sign.
The group also posed for shots in front of the famous landmark and looked like they were having a great time.
She penned in the caption: ‘Paris is always a good idea. Celebrating my girls 30th @ellisransonx ❤️.
‘I have been looking forward to this little trip for ages. Now I’m off to get the steps in, take 100 more pics of the Eiffel Tower & eat croissants with my besties.’
