Reality star Ferne McCann is over the moon to be expecting a baby with her fiancé Lorri Haines, and we can reveal the couple have been telling friends about their special news for weeks.
“Ferne and Lorri are so excited. They can’t wait to be a family of five,” a source close to the former TOWIE star has told us. “Lorri has been openly speaking about it with their friends and family – he couldn’t hold it in any longer.
“They’re so loved-up and have always spoken about expanding their family. They’re going to make the best parents, and Sunday can’t wait to be a big sister.”
Ferne, 32, is mum to five-year-old Sunday with her jailed ex Arthur Collins, while Lorri is also dad to a son from a previous relationship. She sparked pregnancy rumours after posting a gushing tribute for their one-year anniversary last week.
Sharing a string of snaps, she wrote, “I’ve learnt so much about love since being in this relationship. Perhaps before I had a warped idea of what love actually was.
“Love isn’t all happiness. Romantic dates, lust, laughter, snuggles, cosy dinners & endless joy. No, love means warts n all & showing up no matter what. The good the bad & the ugly. So Thankyou @lozzahaines for showing up through the good times and the really really really sh**ty times! It’s not been the easiest first year of a relationship but it’s also not been a total write off.”
She finished the post, “So with the ebb & flows, I am super happy to have you by my side. Here’s to many more babe.”
Taking to the comment section, one follower wrote, “100% [baby] on way .. not one pic over Xmas to now of a [glass of alcohol].” Another said, “Anyone else think ferne is pregnant,” while a third questioned, “Are you pregnant?”
Ferne met businessman Lorri, 31, in Dubai and they got engaged during a holiday to France last July. The star has made no secret of her plans to settle down with Lorri, previously telling new, “[Marriage and kids] is definitely something we talk about all the time. Lorri’s the first person I can see having a future with, so those things often come up.”
And in September, she shared her dreams to have another baby. “I’d love for Sunday to have a sibling, and extend and grow our family,” she confessed. “I really want a baby now, I’m so ready, but do you know what, every baby is a miracle, and it will happen when it’s meant to be.”
We previously reported how the couple were hoping to have an “intimate” wedding in the French Riviera. “While Ferne
has said to friends that of course every girl dreams about that huge, big wedding, she is at the stage now where she just wants her nearest and dearest there. She would love that,” a source told us.
“She may go abroad but she is wanting to keep it a bit more low-key and much more intimate and focus on the friends and family that she’ll have there.”
It comes after a turbulent 2022 for Ferne, who was caught up in a fall-out with former pal Sam Faiers over leaked voice notes. The First Time Mum star was accused of allegedly fat-shaming Sam, 32, as well as calling acid attack victim Sophie Hall “ugly”.
Ferne later apologised to Sophie and all the victims of ex Arthur, who is serving 20 years for an attack at a nightclub in London in 2017.
She insisted the voice notes had been “manipulated, edited and taken out of context”, and she had said things to “protect” her family.
