Amy Childs feared she would miscarry her second child.

The former "Only Way Is Essex" star found out she was pregnant with partner Ritchie's baby just eight months after giving birth to daughter Polly - whose father is her ex-boyfriend Bradley Wright - and she was concerned that conceiving so quickly could have serious repercussions.

Amy, 28, told OK! Magazine: "It was a really big shock. A little bit of me thought because it happened so soon after having Polly that I might have a miscarriage, as it's happened to a lot of my friends.

"But I tried to be positive and thought if this happens then it's meant to be.

"It's overwhelming thinking about how quickly it happened, but now I truly believe it's meant to be. It took me so long to have Polly. I cried every time I came on my period because I wanted a baby so much."

Despite having given birth to Polly, Amy admitted she is really nervous about doing it all again.

She said: "I want to do it naturally but I'm not ruling out an epidural. I'd never choose a Caesarean and I'd never have a home birth. Sam [Faiers] asked me if I'd have one as she's had two and I was like: "Absolutely not!" I'm too much of a worrier."

Polly is now 14 months old and with another baby on the way, Amy insisted she is in no rush to marry secret boyfriend Ritchie.

She said: "We've got the baby coming first, so I'll let you know after that! We'll see. There's no rush."

Ritchie is described as a "high-flying businessman" and Amy is pleased with his decision to stay out of the spotlight.

She said: "He has a good job and he just doesn't want to be involved.

"He tells me "I love Polly and I'll love the newborn, but I don't want to be a part of it," and I have to respect that.

"With Ritchie, it's so refreshing to be with someone like that. I've had boyfriends who've been fame hungry, so it's nice to keep it separate."
