Amy Childs' pet pooch Leo is obsessed with licking her belly
Amy Childs' dog keeps licking her pregnant belly.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star is just nine weeks away from meeting her little bundle of joy, but it's not just she and her partner Bradley Wright who can't wait to meet the tot as her pet pooch Leo has also developed a strong bond with the unborn baby.
Writing in her column for new! magazine, she said: "My first baby - that's my dog Leo - has been acting differently and has been coming to lay next to me quite a bit. He's been putting his head on my bump and licking it. He isn't usually like this.
"I think he sense the baby and that things are about to change. A friend of mine said her dog was exactly the same during her pregnancy. It's so sweet and very clever! I just hope he loves the baby as much when it's here."
Although she's had somewhat of an easy pregnancy thus far, the 26-year-old reality TV star is starting to get fed up of the urgent need to urinate and the aches and pains.
She explained: "Oh my God, I can't stop peeing! This baby must be sitting right on my bladder as I'm going to the toilet non-stop at the minute. Mum says I drink too much water (she's right, I drink about three litres a day) but the amount of times I wee surely isn't normal? I was up four times the other night! I've got reflexology and yoga booked in for next week - I wonder if I can have a few toilet breaks, haha! ...
"I'm 31 weeks right now and I'm feeling very achy all over. I'm still not sleeping much and feel knackered. I've also been having the odd sharp pain through my tummy. Brad got all worried and wanted to call the midwife, but I looked it up and it sounds like Braxton Hicks. I wasn't worried as my baby is so active - I'm sure it's having a party in there! I think it's had hiccups too, because I keep getting this funny little jumping feeling."
