Former TOWIE star Sam Faiers has appeared to confirm news she is pregnant with her first child.

On Friday (21 August), reports surfaced that Sam is expecting a baby with boyfriend Paul Knightley. While the reality star kept quiet on such news at the time, Sam has now taken to Instagram and it seems those baby rumours appear to be true.

Sharing a photo of herself and her property developer beau to the photo-sharing app, Sam cryptically addressed news she is pregnant by adding emojis of a baby and a love heart alongside her post.

Fans instantly took that as confirmation she is set to become a mummy, with many offering their congratulations to the couple.

One user said: "Congratulations Sam !! So happy for you both. While another of Sam's followers commented: "Aww congrats gonna be one beautiful child you cuties."

Sam's Instagram comes after a source revealed she is expecting to The Mirror. They told the paper: "[Sam and Paul] are really thrilled and really looking forward to being first time parents together."

Essex beauty Sam first began dating Paul earlier this year. Their romance came to light after the pair were spotted kissing on a beach in Dubai back in March.

While she initially kept quiet about their relationship, Sam has since taken her romance with Paul public and is now often seen sharing loved up photos of the pair on social media.

Speaking about her new flame, Sam has admitted she didn't expect to fall in love again so soon after her split with ex-boyfriend Joey Essex.

"Everyone said 'you're so young, stay single and play the field for a while', that was my full intention," she said. "I didn't expect to meet anyone... particularly after such an on-off relationship. I suppose they say it happens when you're not looking for it."

While the couple's baby will be Sam's frist time at motherhood, she has had plenty of practice when it comes to looking after a little one, thanks to the arrival of her niece Nelly in July 2014.

Sam's sister Billie Faiers welcomed her first child with fiance Greg Shepherd last year and Sam has been besotted with now one-year-old Nelly ever since.
