'The Great British Bake Off' star Manon Lagreve is pregnant.
The 29-year-old influencer is expecting her first child in June with her fiance Luke Bennett, and she feels "very happy and relaxed" about her pregnancy.
She said: "I grew up knowing I wanted to be a mum so I'm very happy and relaxed with being pregnant.
"The baby will be with me in the kitchen from the day it’s born. We are so happy to be having a summer baby and the due date is on Luke’s birthday – it feels like it’s meant to be."
Manon – who was born in France – admitted one of the "best gifts" she and Luke, who is learning French, can give their baby will be to teach the little one to be bilingual.
She said: "We’re going to work hard at it.
"I’d like the baby to be French speaking at home and then use English outside the home.
"Luke is doing really well with his learning, too."
The couple got engaged in Barbados in November, and the pair are planning to get married in France in June 2022.
Manon added to HELLO! magazine: "It’s nice the baby will be at the wedding."
The star was booted off 'Bake Off' during Danish Week – which was inspired by then-host Sani Toksvig's heritage – in October 2018, when she failed to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with her Showstopper dessert.
She said afterwards: "I love Denmark! I have been twice to Copenhagen and my best friend is Danish, but none of that helped me in Danish Week.
"I was hoping I could have made my friend proud, but she has now forgiven me.
"I loved the 'Bake Off ' bubble so much. There isn’t a moment of it that I didn’t enjoy. I learned so much and I loved meeting everyone involved with the show. I am my own worst critic, though. I put my heart on a plate so the judges would either cuddle it or kill it. It was hard to take the criticism but I valued it and learned from it."
