Mrs Hinch cradles her baby bump as she announces to fans she is going on maternity leave

Mrs Hinch cradled her baby bump as she announced to her fans she is going on maternity leave as of Sunday ahead of her second son’s imminent arrival. 

The cleanfluener, 31, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, is awaiting the arrival of her baby boy with husband Jamie after revealing earlier this week she has reached full term in her pregnancy. 

Sophie took to her Instagram Stories to tell her 4million followers that she was taking a break from work but assured them she would be back ‘very soon’ and would keep them updated about the arrival of her second child. 

Taking a break: Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, took to her Instagram Stories on Sunday to announce she is now on maternity leave ahead of her second son’s arrival

Revealing her plans to begin her maternity leave, she said: ‘So guys, I am the first to say I am so lucky to have the career on Instagram that I do, I have the most loyal followers and an amazing management team, who just get me, they understand me, it’s like a family. 

‘But they also know when I have done too much and tell me NO SOPH. So I am now officially on maternity leave, I’ve worked up until the last few days, but now my work phone and emails have been switched off. 

‘Contracts paused for a while, loose ends all tied up and I’m feeling excited but also slightly lost because it’s all I’ve know for the past few years.’

The expectant mother shared a mirror selfie of her wearing a black crop top and matching leggings as she cradled her bump.
