Charlotte revealed she was expecting her first child in May with beau Jake, who she has been dating for one year.
The star previously told how she decided to start trying for a baby in December 2021, not long after the pair started their relationship.
The couple then decided to stop trying, realising it was quite soon into their romance to welcome a child, and bought ovulation sticks to refrain from having sex on her fertile days.
But then in February on Valentine’s Day, Charlotte found it strange when she wasn’t in the mood to drink or have sex during a surprise romantic getaway to a swanky London hotel. She then realised she was pregnant.
Charlotte revealed the happy news on YouTube back in May as she shared a clip of the moment she found out while in a bathroom.
The reality star recorded herself as she looked at her test result for the first time which was positive in the emotional video.
The new mum looked completely gobsmacked as she stood in her bathroom holding her hand to her mouth.
In the clip, Charlotte could be seen pacing around before calling her boyfriend Jake to come into the room who looked completely surprised.
She captioned the post: ‘A moment I wasn’t sure would ever be mine is here, it’s mine (and Jake’s) and I couldn’t be happier to be sharing it with you all……I’m having a baby.’

Following having a baby scan during a Dubai getaway the influencer said she had been ‘nervous’ following her ectopic pregnancy in 2016 – after falling pregnant by her ex-boyfriend Gaz Beadle.
For her gender reveal party, Charlotte and Jake threw a lavish party at the Vermont Hotel’s rooftop bar in Newcastle.
She spared no expense, with the location boasting a delicious looking doughnut wall and a board for gender predictions.
Charlotte revealed her baby’s gender by enlisting the help of a skywriter to draw a heart in the sky.
It later flew back round to draw the letter ‘G’ in water vapour in the clear blue sky.

As the letter became clear, pink confetti was launched from a cannon above Charlotte, Jake and their friends.
Last week, Charlotte’s father Gary was every inch the doting grandfather as he babysat her newborn daughter Alba Jean for the first time.
Gary shared with fans the very first look at Alba Jean’s face, which had previously been kept off social media.

Underneath, Charlotte’s mother Letitia Crosby, who is bravely battling breast cancer, said she was jealous he got to babysit the tiny tot first.
‘Cannot believe you got first babysitting duties if I [am] honest but we knew she was in good hands,’ she wrote.
However she soon got to hold the newborn, with Charlotte sharing a sweet picture of her mother cradling the tiny tot.
‘Family is everything,’ the post was captioned.
Charlotte welcomed her daughter Alba Jean with beau Jake Ankers on October 15.
She took to Instagram earlier this month to share her first video of the tot as she settled into life as a new mum.
