Samantha Faiers is pregnant

Samantha Faiers is pregnant again.

The former "The Only Way is Essex" star has announced she and her partner Paul Knightley - who already have 18-month-old son Paul together - are expecting their second child and "can't wait" to meet their little bundle of joy before the end of the year.

Taking to her Instagram account on Wednesday (05.07.17), the 26-year-old beauty uploaded a photograph of her burgeoning baby bump while she cradled her son and accompanied it with the caption: "Words can't describe how excited we are to meet you baby We love you so much already #babynumber2 #2under2. (sic)"

The couple's news comes shortly after the blonde beauty said she was desperate to expand her family as she was feeling "broody" following the birth of her sister Billie Faiers" son Arthur - her second child with her fiance Greg Shepherd - in March.

Sam said recently: "We do want a big family, and when Billie had her second baby, Arthur, it made me broody. It made me all "ohhh I want a newborn!" "

However, it's not known whether Samantha's forthcoming arrival was planned as she said a few months ago that she wanted a "three or four year gap" between her kids.

She explained: "I think there should be a three or four year age gap between my children. Plus we are really just enjoying baby Paul right now!"
