There’s definitely something in the air this year! The number of celebrities who are expecting the patter of tiny feet in 2017 has been increasing by the week.

Beyonce, Amal Clooney, Whitney Port, and Rosie Huntington Whitely have all announced their pregnancies – and it’s only February!

As well as the soon-to-be mummies, we’ve seen Stephanie Davis give birth to her beautiful little boy, Caben-Albie, and Binky Felsted getting us excited for the first Made In Chelsea ‘buh’.

But former The Only Way Is Essex star, Amy Childs, is due to give birth pretty soon, meaning she’ll join co-stars Billie and Sam Faiers in the TOWIE mummies club.

However, the glamorous Essex girl is adamant that she will not be taking any maternity leave in the traditional sense.

She told Star magazine: “No way (will I take maternity leave). I’ll probably have one day off a week.

“I’m very social and can take the baby with me everywhere I go. I love being out!”

Amy announced her pregnancy late last year and hasn’t got long to go until she meets her little bundle of joy – she’s due to give birth at the beginning of May.

The 26-year-old has been keeping her fans updated with cute photos of her bump on Instagram, and even sharing a throwback picture to when she was having a ‘mum-to-be’ treatment.

She has even shared snaps of her little niece coming in to her office to work with her, which is very sweet. This is possibly an insight into how Amy plans to work with her baby by her side!
