Amy is expecting her first child with boyfriend Bradley Wright, after they recently rekindled their romance, and told fans on Twitter she and Bradley are "so excited" at the prospect of becoming parents.
26-year-old Amy confirmed the news in a joint interview with Bradley for OK! magazine. Amy said: "I feel so overwhelmed and I keep waking up smiling. We've wanted a baby for so long, so we're happier than ever."
When news of their interview surfaced online, Amy tweeted in response: "We are so excited."

She has since been inundated with congratulations, with her former co-star Maria Fowler (who welcomed her first child, daughter Evie, in September) telling Amy: "Congratulations @MissAmyChilds your life will be about to change forever."
Amy's baby news comes after she recently shared her hopes to start a family of her own with Reveal. Commenting on Billie Faiers' news that she is expecting a second child, Amy exclusivey told us it had made her broody. She said: "I've always said I'd love a baby. Before TOWIE I was going to work with children. I just love children."
Amy and Bradley initially started dating at the beginning of 2015, but didn't go public with their romance until May that year. The couple reportedly met in an Essex bar, and had dated for over a year.
Amy even sparked rumours she and Bradley were engaged, when she was spotted trying on engagement rings during a shopping trip.
However, the couple split in October 2015, after it emerged Bradley had allegedly sent explicit texts to another woman. Following their break up, though, Amy admitted she still thought Bradley is The One.
"What Brad has done is disrespectful," Amy told The Mirror. "I am so upset and angry. We love each other but I can't have him around right now. I feel stressed and he has made me feel bad about myself... I'd like to think we'd still marry and have babies. I still think he's The One but he's got to learn his lesson."
The pair have now got their relationship back on track, but since getting back together Amy has kept their romance fairly private.
