It comes after Amy revealed she’s expecting twins last month with her boyfriend Billy, weeks after their brief split. 

Amy began dating businessman Billy, 38, in July last year and has previously praised him for acting as a father figure to her children Polly, four, and Ritchie Jr, two, from previous relationships. 

In August, it was revealed the couple had temporarily split after Amy accused Billy of messaging another girl behind her back.

While Billy denied the claims, he did admit to taking the woman’s number – leading to a fractured time between the couple – yet the pregnancy news has made them stronger. 

She added that she initially didn’t want to have any more children, but changed her mind after meeting Billy. 

Amy explained: ‘I promise you now, I didn’t want any more children. When I met Bill I thought, ‘Do you know what, I’ll have one more.’ We are so excited – it’s going to be absolutely amazing.’

In a joint Instagram post, she continued: ‘THE NEWS IS FINALLY OUT’ When 4 become 6!! We’re both over the moon to announce we’re having.. ‘NOT 1… BUT 2’… WE’RE HAVING TWINS!! Our family is so complete and we’re so excited for the next chapter.’

Amy and Billy have been an item since October last year, just two months after the mother-of-two split from her ex-boyfriend Tim following 14 months together.   

During the last season of TOWIE, Billy flew to the Dominican Republic to surprise the Essex star for their first anniversary.

Amy, who shares daughter Polly, five, with ex-Bradley Wright, started dating TOWIE newcomer Billy following her split from former partner Tim last July.

She is also a mum to Ritchie Jr, three, from her relationship with businessmen Ritchie, but unlike Polly, who regularly features on TOWIE, her son remains out of the spotlight.
