Binky Felstead's mother messaged Josh 'JP' Patterson to tell him her daughter was pregnant.
The 26-year-old television personality is expecting her first child with her boyfriend and 'Made in Chelsea' co-star, but she has revealed her parent Jane had to reach out to the dark-haired hunk to tell him the news because the pair was not dating at the time.
Speaking about the moment her partner found out about her pregnancy on ITV's 'This Morning' on Monday (20.03.17), the brunette beauty said: "There's no secret we've had our ups and downs ... we just happen to live ours out on camera. It can be quite difficult. I found out I was pregnant and we weren't actually together at the time. My mum was there [when I found out], and she messaged Josh because I was pretty shaken up and Josh came round immediately. She said, 'Binky's just taken a pregnancy test, I think you should come over.' "
And the 25-year-old reality star has "never" felt the way he did when he was told about the exciting news.
He said: "I can't describe the feeling. It's something I've never felt before or can describe. The main thing that came into my mind was to make sure this one [Binky] was OK, so it was irrelevant how I was. It was more get round there. There were no cameras, this was very private and personal. And the changes in myself and Binks since finding out this news is what makes it so special."
However, Binky's close friend Ollie Locke burst into "happy tears" when she told him she was pregnant.
She said: "He [Ollie] burst into tears, happy tears when he found out [about the baby] he was really excited. I tell all the girls, for real, on camera - I promise - I had to keep it a secret for a long time. There are typical boy reactions and typical girls' reactions."
Binky - whose real name is Alexandra - is not nervous about going into labour and is "ready" the arrival of her baby, as she has already renovated her home to accommodate the new addition to her family.
She explained: "I'm not nervous. I feel like we've been given a real gift and I'm just really excited to become a little family.
"I do feel ready. The house has been renovated, the nursery is being planned and everything has been bought and it's really exciting."
