The former 'Only Way Is Essex' star has announced that her and her partner are set to welcome a little brother or sister for Amy's daughter Polly into the world.

Amy wrote on Instagram: "My partner and I are delighted to announce that polly will soon be welcoming a little brother or sister Into the world. We are beyond excited! #babynumbertwo #halfwaythere (sic)"

It is not known who Amy's partner is but she was spotted with a mystery man in February in the Caribbean.

Meanwhile, Amy had previously insisted "there's no chance at all" that she'll get back together with her daughter Polly's father, Bradley Wright, who she split from a few weeks after she gave birth.

Speaking about the struggles of being a single parent, she said: "There are times when it's really tough. Polly usually sleeps through the night, but she's teething at the moment so she's been waking up every hour. It's times like that when I'd love to have a partner who could help me out or look after her while I have a bath. Being a mum is non-stop and sometimes it's really tough, but I have to remind myself that I'm doing a good job and that I just need to get on with things.

"I get a lot of help from my parents as they live just down the road, but it doesn't replace what I'm missing in a partner ... Motherhood is the best thing I've ever done, though - I have no regrets. I've also learnt that you become less selfish when you have a child, it's not all about you anymore."
