Back in January, Sam revealed to fans that she would be having another home birth with her third child after welcoming daughter Rosie in the same way back in 2017. 

During an Instagram Q&A with fans, one person asked: ‘Will you have a home birth again? xx.’

To which Sam replied: ‘Yes! I’m so excited to be having another home birth.

‘My experience with Rosie was the best (not pain-free may I add lol) but the whole home vibe was so peaceful and relaxed.

‘Literally half an hour after having Rosie I was in my bed with her watching X-Factor with tea and toast.’

The star went on to add: ‘I know it’s not for everyone, but if you’re low risk and have thought about it. Definitely ask your midwife all the questions you have.’

Sam then went on to give fans an update of the pregnancy when one follower asked how it was going.

The beauty replied: ‘Very well thank you. I’m very grateful that all my pregnancies have been really straightforward. I love being pregnant.

‘I know it’s not the same for everyone but I enjoy the whole process.’

Sam responded: ‘Personally I found it a little difficult in the early days as I was breastfeeding Rosie whilst Paul was still in nappies and wanting my attention a lot.

‘I wouldn’t change it for the world. But when we have more I think it would be maybe next year? Who knows.. @PaulKnightley.’

Sam took a step back from the media spotlight last year after sensationally quitting her long running ITV reality show The Mummy Diaries.

The reality star has had a meteoric rise to fame after first appearing in The Only Way Is Essex over ten years ago and is said to have a net worth in excess of £10 million.  

A source exclusively told the MailOnline: ‘Sam and Paul have been looking for the perfect family home for some time and whilst they plan to fully renovate the property, their new home is perfect for a growing family.

‘The gated property is private and comes with lots of land.’
