With such joyous news that she's expecting her second child, Danielle Armstrong couldn't wait to tell her best friend Ferne McCann.
But Danielle's two year old daughter Orla let the cat out of the bag to Ferne with the words "Mummy, baby."
And informing their daughter of her sibling wasn’t a choice either for the former TOWIE star and her husband Tommy Edney.
“We didn’t have to do the whole sit down and tell her, ‘Mummy’s having a baby,’” she explained.
“It was within the first few days of me and Tom talking about the baby and she was like, ‘Mummy, baby.’ That’s why she kept grassing me up to everyone. When we told Tom’s mum, she was like, ‘Orla told me a month ago.’”
Danielle is keeping her due date and how many weeks along she is under wraps but, like pregnant best friend Ferne, she’ll give birth in the summer.
In fact, she’s excited about having her pal by her side throughout this experience, describing it as “really exciting”. But she’s also looking forward to having her daughter there to help her out in those first few exhausting months.
“She’ll be my little helper – helping with the nappies,” she told us.
Danielle, who isn't finding out the gender of her baby during pregnancy, is also looking forward to expanding her brood and admitted she "could never imagine being a family of three."
“I’ve never looked at myself as a mum-of-one," she said.
"I can’t wait to see Orla with a sibling. I feel like there’s something missing – she needs a little brother or sister. I come from a family of four, Tom comes from a family of four and, even though it’s been the three of us, I feel like this baby is going to fit in so lovely.”
When it comes to names, Danielle is pretty set on what she’d like to call her baby if it’s a boy – but her husband disagrees. She loves the name Luca, while Tommy would like their son to be named after him.
“I get why dads do that, but I like it that he’s my Tom,” she said.
“Girls’ names are so easy. Orla is such a pretty, girlie name. And my dad’s called James so I’d have the middle name James.”
