Kelly Brook has confirmed she is pregnant and is expecting a baby girl.
The model and actress is expecting her first child with boyfriend Thom Evans (pictured), a former Scottish rugby player.
Kelly, who rose to fame co-hosting Channel 4’s Big Breakfast, announced the news on Twitter.
She said: “Thom and I are happy to announce we are expecting a baby girl. We are delighted XXXXX.”
It is thought Kelly released the news after her three-month scan, but the couple are not believed to have picked a name yet.
The star and her boyfriend have relocated to Los Angeles where she is capitalising on her appearance in last year’s 3D horror film Piranha.
Kelly, 31, who has just finished a swimwear photo shoot for New Look along with other fashion projects, met her boyfriend at the end of last year.
England rugby star Danny Cipriani, a former team-mate of Thom, split from Kelly earlier in 2010.
He wished the couple all the best, saying: “Kelly told me in January that she was expecting. I am really happy for her. She will make a great mum.”
