Billie announced her pregnancy back in January, and then revealed the baby's sex during a party aired on TOWIE.

She and Greg broke the news to friends and family by cutting into a pink cake, showing it would be a baby girl.

It was a doubly joyous start to the year for Billie, as shortly after her pregnancy was announced, she became engaged to Greg. He proposed to her during a romantic holiday in the Maldives at the start of the year.

Congrats, guys!
