Appearing on ITV's Lorraine earlier today, Claire opened up on how she has found her pregnancy and confirmed she will be having a little boy in just four weeks time.
Cradling her bump, Claire told Lorraine Kelly: "I'm due 4 weeks yesterday… I'm going to miss my bump. I've really enjoyed him, I can feel him wriggling around."
Looking gorgeous in an emerald green wrap dress, Claire and her blooming bump looked ready to pop and despite having a planned C-section in a month's time, the mum-to-be said she feels like her baby could arrive at any time!
Claire announced she was pregnant with her first child after reaching the five-month mark back in May this year.
After suffering from two miscarriages previously, Clarie described her baby as a "blessing" as after her second miscarriage she wasn't sure if having a child would ever happen for her.
Asked why she kept her good news hidden for so long, Claire said: "I had a few mates go to me 'have you put on a bit of weight Sweeney, what's going on?' - but I wanted to get the first three months out of the way because of the miscarriages. I just wanted to keep it private for a little bit and then it got to a stage where I started showing... I just couldn't hide it anymore."
Claire is expecting her child with her ex-fiancé Daniel Riley and since the pair split in December last year, they have remained close.
Revealing Daniel will be joining her for the birth of their baby, Claire insisted her ex will make "an amazing dad".
The star also confirmed she and Daniel will be welcoming a son: "I know it's a little boy, I couldn't resist. I like to know so I can plan, but I keep changing my mind about names… I fancy Gabriel! There's three floating round."
At 43-years-old Claire claimed being an older mother was "better suited to her", she told Lorraine: "I've lived my life, I've travelled, I've partied, I've worked and life is just about to begin again."
But having a newborn on her hands won't stop the busy performer from heading back to work.
The former Loose Women panellist said she will take nine weeks off before starting panto and also spoke of her plans to go on tour with the show she co-penned, Sex and the Suburbs, in March next year.
