Sophie recently looked the picture of health and happiness as she took a stroll in rain-soaked London on February 18, days after announcing her pregnancy.

She cradled her bump while partner Matt held their retriever, Buddy, with one onlooker saying: ‘They were smiling, they were very relaxed in each other’s company and just looked so happy.’

The couple, who met and began their relationship in 2016, were both sporting a gold band each during the morning walk.

They were first pictured wearing ‘wedding rings’ while walking their dog in the park in January, but they are still yet to confirm if they are married.

Soon after their engagement in 2019, Sophie said: ‘The whole wedding thing is weird. Everyone expects you to be desperate to be a princess for the day – that’s not really my scene.’
