Former Saturdays singer Mollie King looks radiant as well as blooming as her due date edges closer.
But a source close to the star has told us that despite appearances, she’s actually had quite a rough ride of it.
They said: “The start of her pregnancy was quite tough on Mollie. She was filming in the early days and she was quite protective – as well as feeling very sick!”
As well as launching a new Radio 1 show called Future Pop this month, Mollie, 35, was on our screens this summer on This Morning and is co-presenting the reboot of reality show Beauty And The Geek UK with Matt Edmondson.
But according to our source, Mollie, who’s engaged to England cricketer Stuart Broad, 36, is keen to take her foot off the pedal a bit.
They told us: “She loves her job and loved working on This Morning over the summer. But now there’s another little person involved, she’s thinking of scaling down a bit for when her bundle arrives, and really enjoying her baby bubble.”
Mollie and Stuart have had some parenting practice already in the form of their toy poodle, Alfie, who was with them on Richmond Hill when Stuart proposed on New Year’s Day in 2021.
Despite having had big plans for her wedding, Mollie is now focusing mainly on her baby – whose gender she’s been keeping a secret.
However, she did show off her bump recently when she appeared in a gorgeous dress to promote the launch of her and Matt’s new show.
It comes after the star opened up about her pregnancy as she appeared on Lorraine to discuss Beauty And The Geek with co-host Matt.
Commenting on how "gorgeous" she looked, Lorraine Kelly asked the singer how she was doing to which she revealed: "I am feeling really good, so grateful and just enjoying every minute!"
Talking about any weird pregnancy cravings she's had, Mollie added: "I had a few odd ones at start, apples, pizzas, I ate so many pizzas!"
She added: "Feeling really good, thank you, I was pregnant while filming the series and I was sure that Matt knew about it because we were together every single day."
To which Matt admitted: "I was completely oblivious… there were loads of clues. You'd stopped drinking coffee, your diet was different to normal, you kept taking naps!", adding Mollie was evening listening to the audiobook Bridget Jones's Baby.
With Mollie joking: "He still didn't get the clues!" while Matt quipped: "It came as a real surprise when she later told me!"
