The former 'EastEnders' star - who already has three-year-old daughter Ella with her husband Dan Osborne - is due to give birth to her second child later this year but has admitted she was terrified about sharing the news with her mum at first.

Speaking in her new video uploaded to her YouTube account, the 25-year-old beauty said: "I was terrified, which is weird, I felt exactly the same and thought I am not telling my mum, even though come on it's pretty obvious now.

"You just go into a different mode where you're like, 'No I'm not telling anyone, I'm ashamed. What do I do? Oh my god, people are gonna know'.

"It's what happens when you make a baby, like hello, I've already got one, it's obvious. I just couldn't, you do go into the sort of frame of mind and it is stupid."

The 25-year-old actress announced that she and Dan - who got married last summer - were expecting another child last month - around the same time she left 'EastEnders'.

She said at the time: "In mid-October I started to suspect I might be pregnant when I went to watch Daniel taking part in a charity boxing match. I was drinking wine but wasn't feeling drunk. I didn't understand what was going on and then it hit me that the same thing happened before I realised I was pregnant with Ella. We took a test the next day. We both started laughing when the test was positive."

Dan added: "We hadn't been trying so it was a huge shock.

"I think I'm still getting my head around it. Kids are a blessing but having three children is going to be a big responsibility. I'm not going to lie, I feel quite scared!"
