In an exclusive interview with ITV’s Lorraine Kelly, Danniella Westbrook has confirmed the rumours that she is expecting a child with her 34-year-old fiance Alan.

It was Lorraine’s first show back after a long summer break and she was eager to get all the details from Danniella.

The former EastEnders actress, 44, revealed that she could even be pregnant with twins! She said: “I’m great actually, really good, fantastic. I don’t know if I’m having two because I’m huge. I’m only five weeks and I’m huge. It may well be twins but I don’t have a scan for another four/five weeks.”

The reality TV star also said that this baby will help her finally beat her addictions. She said: “As a drug addict I can never say never but for me, I know there’s a lot more to life than picking up that rubbish.”

She added: “And I’m just sick to death of it, I’m sick to death of relapsing, people are sick to death of hearing about is as well, and I just think life is a blessing and you have to embrace that life.”

Danniella admitted that she was head over heels in love with her finance who she described as “the one”.

She said: “Who wouldn’t be happy? Have you seen my fella? I’ve found the man who can tame me. I don’t argue with him, I listen. I’ve found the one. He’s a real man’s man and he’s Spanish so he has those whole Spanish values and family-orientated and stuff like that.”

This will also be Danniella’s third child. She already has Kai, 21 with Robert Fernandez and 15-year-old Jody from her ex Kev Jenkins.

This wasn’t the only baby news of the day! It was also revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were expecting their third child. And that Strictly star Aston Merrygold is expecting his first.

So far 2018 is shaping up to be a busy year on the celebrity baby front, but time will soon tell if Danniella is right with her hunch that she’ll be welcoming twins.
