Sam Faiers has thanked fans for their congratulatory messages after confirming she is expecting a baby.

Despite currently being away on holiday, the former TOWIE star has been keeping a close eye on social media after coming clean about her baby news.

Tweeting for the first time since her pregnancy came to light, Sam thanked fans for their well wishes.

She tweeted earlier today: "I have been reading all your kind tweets thank you so much."

Fans were quick to congratulate Sam and her boyfriend Paul Knightley (who she has been dating since earlier this year), after the starlet revealed the couple are now expecting their first child together.

Reports had surfaced suggesting Sam is pregnant and proving them to be the true, the Essex beauty shared a selfie of herself and her property developer boyfriend to Instagram, posting a love heart emoji and one of a baby alongside her post.

Seems like a big congratulations in order, doesn't it?!

Sam's tweet comes as she is currently holidaying overseas. Revelling in her baby joy, the now-turned fitness fanatic shared a selfie with fans as she topped up her tan.

In her snap, a fresh-faced Sam can be seen baring her freckles while donning her bikini. She said: "#currentsituation #sunbathing #tanning #freckles."

The mum-to-be appeared to be enjoying every bit of her 'me time' as she relaxed in the sunshine.

And so she should be, right? After all, she'll find herself pretty busy with a newborn on her hands!
