Former TOWIE star Maria Fowler has revealed she didn't have the best start to her pregnancy and told fans she and her boyfriend Kelvin Batey are now "so relieved."

Maria recently announced she is expecting her first child and after receiving a slew of congratulatory messages, the reality star took to Twitter once again to thanks fans for their well wishes.

While doing so, she revealed she'd had a 'bad start' to her pregnancy - suggesting it had delayed her in revealing her exciting news.

Maria tweeted: "Thankyou for the messages and lovely tweets. It's been so nice to finally announce it after a bad start to the pregnancy."

While she didn't divulge any details, keeping that private between herself and her beau, Maria did suggest that everything is now ok by adding: "We're so relieved."

We're glad to hear it!

The 29-year-old had hinted she was expecting back in January, after posting a cryptic quote about parenthood to Twitter. It included the phrase: "Becoming a parent doesn't change you, it makes you realise that the little people that YOU created deserve the very best of your time..."

At the time, a friend of Maria's had asked her if she was pregnant and she set tongues wagging by telling her pal she would message them on WhatsApp.

She finally announced her baby joy with fans yesterday on Mother's Day (6 March). To do so, Maria shared an adorable photo that featured a pair of mini baby shoes that matched her own and Kelvin's too.

She said: "As it's Mother's Day, @KelvinBatey555 and I are pleased to announce a new addition is on its way later this year."

BMX racer Kelvin, meanwhile, said: "Really looking forward to finally filling these shoes later this year. So happy and proud of @MariaFowler."

Maria and Kelvin have been dating since the middle of last year.
