Baby news for TOWIE star

Baby news for TOWIE star

Billie Faiers is pregnant.

The 'Only Way is Essex' beauty is expecting her first child in the early part of the summer with long-term partner Greg Shepherd – who does not star on the ITV2 reality show - and the couple "can't wait" to meet their baby.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Billie and Greg are over the moon. They’ve been a couple for two years now and love each other to bits.

“They can’t wait to meet their son or daughter in the summer.

“All their friends and family — especially her sister Sam — are made up for her."

Billie – whose sister and co-star Sam Faiers is set to enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house tonight - and Greg put their relationship success down to the businessman deciding against starring on 'TOWIE', despite the producers previously asking him to appear on the programme.

The source added: “Billie and Greg have always been seen as the ideal couple as they get on well and they don’t have all the dramas like everyone else on the show.”

The 23-year-old beauty has become the first 'TOWIE' star to fall pregnant while still on the show.
