A lot has been happening with the Real Housewives of Cheshire stars during lockdown; Christine McGuinness has quit the show, Ester Dee is no longer part of the cast and now one of the housewives has revealed they're pregnant.

Hanna Kinsella has announced she's expecting her first child with her husband Martin after confessing they "had a great time in lockdown".


"We’re really excited. It’s obviously going to be a new chapter in our lives and we’re both at that point where we’re ready to start a family and enjoy that next era," Hanna said.

Martin added, "It feels a bit surreal and it hasn’t quite sunk in. A lot of people have been telling me this is the start of the best time of my life, so I’m looking forward to the future."

The reality star who admitted that they didn't "put any pressure" on becoming pregnant confessed that due to coronavirus they were forced to have a private scan so that her hubby could attend their 12-week appointment.

"We feel sorry for other people who aren’t able to do that. It’s a really important experience and we both got quite emotional," Martin explained.

Hanna has also opened up about telling her fellow cast mates about her pregnancy and admitted it was difficult that because of COVID-19 they're forced to social distance.

"[It's been hard] especially when I told the girls, their first reaction was that they wanted to give me a big hug and a kiss, but you can’t," she explained to OK! magazine.

"Their reactions were amazing. Rachel [Lugo] cried and Seema [Malhotra] couldn’t believe it. Everyone is really happy for us."

Well, that's good news because RHOC fans will remember when Hanna tied the knot and the rest of the Housewives (who were not invited) turned up and pretended to gatecrash the 'do.


Since confirming the news, Hanna has shared a gorgeous photo of her baby bump and thanked her fans for their well wishes before confirming she's 15 weeks pregnant.

Hanna has also revealed that she's not leaving the ITVBe show any time soon but hinted she'll have to think about her position on the show when the baby is here.

"The producers would have the cameras there at the birth if they could! Only joking. They’re going to follow the pregnancy as it’s part of my life.

"This poor baby has no idea it’s already going to be plastered all over TV. It’ll be the next series when the baby will be here, so it’s something we’ll think about."

We hope she stays, tbh.
