With her first child on the way, it's no wonder Fearne Cotton has plenty to smile about.
But the 30-year-old presenter was even giddier than usual as she left the Radio 1 studios earlier today (Friday).
Covering her baby bump in a long flowing black gown and balancing on teetering black shoe boots, the Celebrity Juice star couldn't control her fit of giggles as she made her way to the car.
Radiant: Pregnant Fearne Cotton couldn't keep the smile off her face as she left the Radio 1 studios in central London earlier today
The Radio 1 host looked positively radiant with the glow of impending motherhood as she joked with photographers in the sunshine.
But it would seem the star was given a little reminder of her unborn tot as she later was snapped having to support her back lovingly as she leaned backwards.
Fearne announced she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Jesse Wood, the son of Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood, earlier this month.
Glowing: Despite having to support her baby bump with her hand on her back at one stage, Fearne seemed to be having a hoot as she shared a joke with photographers
Writing on her official website, she said: 'Jesse and I are very happy to announce we are having a baby.
'We are over the moon, morning sickness aside (me, not Jess) and looking forward to the little Cotton Woods arrival.'
But speaking on her Radio 1 show, the star admitted she was struggling with the perils of morning sickness.
She said: 'I’m over the moon, really, really happy. I sighed a big breath of relief being able to tell family and friends.
Parents-to-be: Fearne and her boyfriend, Jesse Wood, announced they were expecting their first child together earlier this month
‘It’s nice to be able to talk about it at last, rather than just feeling relatively sick at work and running to the toilet without anyone seeing.
‘Any other women who have gone through morning sickness know you feel very ropey for about three months – and you can’t say anything.’
The baby will be the third child for Jesse, who has two children from a previous relationship.
Fearne has been dating Jesse since last July - two months after splitting from former fiance Jesse Jenkins, a Californian skateboarder who she dated for three years.
Guitarist Ronnie, 65, has also given his seal of approval, saying: ‘Fearne’s a beautiful girl. They’re lovely together. I met her when she came to a Faces gig with Jesse at Cornbury Festival. I very much approve.
‘She’s rock ‘n’ roll. I do wonder if she’ll become my daughter-in-law any time soon.’
Trend-setter: Fearne has continued to be her stylish self since announcing her pregnancy, and has stepped out in a variety of fashionable outfits
