Snuggled up in bed in a set of comfy white pajamas, the singer revealed she is in disbelief that she hasn’t given birth to her baby daughter, but is making the most of every second because she’s ‘not gonna do it again’.

The Loose Women panelist giddily began, ‘I’m in bed and it’s only half nine but I just can’t stay up anymore.

‘I was just laying here thinking, ‘I can’t believe I’m still pregnant, I really thought I would have had her by now.’ 

‘But actually this is the first time I’ve been pregnant and not wished the end away.

‘I know I’m not gonna do it again so I’m just trying to hold onto every second. But I was also thinking, ‘I’ve got to get her here now. I’ve got to push her out.’
