Amy Childs and her partner Bradley Wright are expecting a little daughter in seven weeks' time
Amy Childs is expecting a baby girl.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star was convinced she was having a little boy with her boyfriend Bradley Wright after a psychic convinced her of the sex during a session so she was pleasantly surprised when her scan revealed she's carrying a daughter.
Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: "I think I'm still in shock. Instinct told me it would be a boy. A psychic told me it was going to be a boy, and lots of people I knew thought the same. I even ordered a boy Moncler baby bag because I was so convinced."
The 26-year-old beauty is set to welcome her little one into the world in seven weeks' time and, although her pregnancy has been relatively easy, she's scared of giving birth.
She explained: "I'm anxious. I don't know what a contraction is going to feel like, it's all new for me. But I've been doing hypnobirthing - a lady has been coming round to my house to sit with me and Brad.
"At first I had - well, not quite the giggles - never meditated in my life. But it's been good to do the breathing exercises and get into that mindset. I'm a young mum so I'm learning all the time. Initially I said no to a home birth but since I've been learning about hyponobirthing I would definitely consider for the next baby."
The red-haired star is planning to have a water birth with her mother and boyfriend Brad by her side when her little bundle of joy finally decides to make her appearance.
She said: "I'm going to have a water birth. Mum will be with me and Brad. I've had a look around the unit and the nurses are so lovely. We're just preparing for everything. You don't know what's going to happen so - touch wood - it goes smoothly."
