Danielle Armstrong is going to be a mum for the first time with her childhood sweetheart.
Congratulations are in order because former TOWIE star Danielle Armstrong has announced she’s pregnant.
The 31-year-old took to Instagram to reveal the exciting news on Wednesday evening, showing her followers a baby scan photo.
Seen cosying up to her mystery boyfriend called Tom, she wrote: "The Best Part Of Us Will Be You.”
Reality star Danielle later took to her Instagram Stories to give fans more details, as she said: "Hi guys, I just wanted to do a quick insta story obviously the news is now out.
"I and Tom are expecting our first baby together next year. May 2020. I love that it's 2020. Anyway I'm so excited.
"I just want to say thank you to everyone who has been sending me messages. I'm actually a little bit overwhelmed to be honest and my phone hasn't stopped. I just wanted to say thank-you. Very exciting times."
She then flipped the camera around to show Tom sitting on the sofa playfully biting her toes.
Former TOWIE co-star Ferne McCann was quick to congratulate her best friend in her own sweet social media message.
Saying Danielle will make an “amazing mummy”, the 29-year-old wrote: “My bestie’s news is out. I can’t tell you how happy & excited I am!
“Sunday is going to have a new little friend. Auntie Dan Dan is going to be Mamma...an amazing Mummy for sure.”
This comes after Danielle - who split from her ex-boyfriend footballer Daniel Spiller back in August - revealed she’d found love with her "best friend of 22 years" in a sweet Instagram post in September.
Sharing a pic of them together on Instagram, Danielle wrote: "Life has a funny way of working out just when I decided to give up on love my friend of 22 years swept me off my feet.
"You don't find love it finds you, it's got a little a to do with destiny & fate, and what's written in the stars."
Danielle is following in the footsteps of former TOWIE stars Lydia Bright and Lucy Mecklenburgh who are both expecting babies early next year.
