Celebrity Beauty: Amy Willerton reveals she is pregnant with her first child with fiancé Daniel Day

Celebrity Beauty:

She confirmed her engagement to her boyfriend of three years in April, after he proposed during a sunrise picnic in the Alps.

And Amy Willerton announced she’s expecting her first baby with fiancé Daniel Day in an exclusive interview with HELLO! on Sunday.

The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star, 26, is five months pregnant with the couple’s first child together after conceiving not long after their engagement on March 29.

Baby news! Amy Willerton, 26, announced she’s expecting her first baby with fiancé Daniel Day in an exclusive interview with HELLO! on Sunday

She described the news as ‘definitely the most wonderful engagement present we could ever wish for’ during her chat with the magazine. 

The couple chose to wait two months longer than the recommended 12 weeks before revealing the pregnancy after they sought an amniocentesis to check for any disorders. 

An amniocentesis can detect the chromosomal abnormalities that cause Downs, Edwards or Patau syndromes by taking a sample of the amniotic fluid that surrounds the baby by inserting a hollow needle into the uterus.

Amy’s family have a history of disability and her autistic brother Ross, 25, was born with an extra chromosome.

‘Our unborn baby was, in fact, okay,’ Amy said.

And despite initially planning to marry next summer, Amy revealed the couple may push back the wedding.

‘We want to get it right,’ she said. ‘If it happens next summer as we had planned, amazing. If it happens a little later, that’s okay, too.  

‘Our wedding is about telling our friends and family that we want to be together forever and what counts is that our little baby will be with us. That’s really special.’  

The winner of Miss Universe Great Britain admitted she expected a day of skiing on the slopes during a holiday in March, and was surprised by Dan’s proposal.

‘I was all set to do some extreme skiing,’ Amy said at the time. ‘Then I spied a breakfast picnic set up with candles, a firepit, a bottle of our favourite champagne and red roses everywhere.’ 

‘Then he dropped to both knees and pulled out a box from his pocket containing the most beautiful ring. It felt like a dream.’ 

Afterwards she asked her beau to propose a second time to make sure everything was perfect. ‘And the second time around I made him do it on one knee because I didn’t know if proposing on both knees counted!’

‘I couldn’t have asked for it to go better,’ said Daniel, adding that his only worry was Amy discovering his plans. ‘She’s like Sherlock Holmes – you can’t get anything by her.’ ‘Now it does feel like the next chapter,’ gushed Amy. 

At the early stages of their romance, Amy praised Daniel for giving her confidence during a candid interview back in August 2016.

The reality star, who was forced to deny that she was engaged just months after going public with her relationship, gushed to MailOnline: ‘It’s going really well and I’m very happy.’

The blonde beauty previously revealed she was so secure in her romance that she has been able to share relationship tips with her loved ones. 

She told the Daily Star newspaper in February 2017: ‘Now that I finally have a normal relationship I feel like I’ve become the counselor.

‘Guys can be possessive, which is an issue I’ve always had. My past boyfriends have not been able to let me go and trust I’ll come back.’

But the former beauty pageant queen later confessed their short romance was not a happy time for her. 

‘The attention after we left the show was really hard for me,’ she told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper.

‘It was a was a really one-sided s
