Luisa Zissman left fans STUNNED when she dropped a pregnancy announcement on them back on 1st April.

And they were left even more slack-jawed when she added that her bundle of joy would be arriving in July.

However, despite sharing plenty of pregnancy selfies with her fans on social media, the former Apprentice star has now revealed that she is finding it tough to deal with the changes in her body.

Speaking exclusively to OK! Magazine, she said: “I’m very blessed to be pregnant but I find the changes in my body quite hard.

“After I weighed myself I couldn’t stop looking at skinny people on Instagram. I went to see my mum and burst into floods of tears.”

It seems as if her little one’s due date couldn’t come any sooner, as Luisa also told Twitter: “It’s so boring being pregnant! I don’t like it, I’m not a big pregnant fan.

“It’s just a long time to grow a human. It takes a long time.

“But at least I’m not an elephant! They take about 2 years! But I do feel like an elephant!”

However, despite feeling a little blue about her blossoming baby bump, Luisa is VERY excited to meet her baby girl.

And, over the past few days, she’s shared a few snaps of her unborn daughter’s gorgeous nursery with fans on Instagram.

Check it out:

Fans have fallen in love with the chic colour palette that Luisa has selected for her baby’s room - although they admittedly got more excited about that gorgeous canopy over the cot!

“This is SO beautiful!” raved one.

Another added: “This is absolutely stunning - where is that drape thing from?”

However some of her followers were a little more practical.

“You wait till the kid throws up in it,” joked one.

Spoilsports, eh?

It seems as if Luisa, who has a five-year-old daughter, Dixie, from her previous relationship with Oliver Zissman, is sparing no expense when it comes to her second baby.

Yup, you guessed it; she’s only gone and booked herself into The Portland Hospital in London - aka the UK’s only private maternity ward, favoured by the likes of Victoria Beckham and the royal family.

Confirming her pricey choice, she shared an image of her exclusive welcome package.

She captioned it: “So this little bubba will be born at The Portland. I've just seen there is a documentary on the Portland tomorrow night on BBC2 can't wait to watch it!!

“Loved giving birth to Dixie was best experience of my life completely euphoric so excited to do it again. #hypnobirthing #hypnobirth #waterbirth #labour #ThePortland.”

For those who tuned in to watch BBC Two's Five Star Babies: Inside The Portland Hospital, you’ll know already that the hospital offers the last word in luxury care for mums-to-be.

Which is the least you’d expect, considering the price tag.

According to the Mail Online, the ward sets couples back a minimum of £30,000.


One thing’s for sure, we can’t WAIT to meet Luisa’s little one.

After all, she’s probably gong to have a better wardrobe than us by the time she’s a month old…
