Ferne McCann has shared a picture of her bump while on holiday – and some fans seem to think they’ve guessed the gender of her baby as a result.
The former TOWIE star is currently enjoyed a pre-baby holiday in the French Riviera, and has been using social media to keep fans updated on bump watch.
Sharing a picture of herself ready to tuck in to some food, Ferne displayed her blossoming baby belly while wearing a bikini.
Hinting to fans that she might have been eating for two during her holiday, the reality TV star wrote in the caption of the picture: ‘If you’ve lost your appetite today…I think I have it 😊👶🏼🍴. I have not stopped eating on this holiday. Bring me food 🍴😊🙈’
The expectant mum also shared another picture of her beautiful bump in its full glory, where a distinctive linea nigra can be seen across her stomach.
A linea nigra, which is Latin for ‘black line’, is a vertical line that appears on the stomach of a pregnant woman roughly after the six months mark.
Some theories say that this line can reveal the gender of the baby, with some thinking that if it runs above the belly button, it’s a boy, and if it only runs up to the belly button, then it’s a girl. Others say you only get a linea nigra if you’re having a boy.
Fans used these theories to predict Ferne’s baby gender, with the majority of fans thinking the former I’m a Celebrity contestant will be welcoming a little boy.
One wrote: ‘I think boy. I had linea nigras with both my boys but I haven’t with this pregnancy and I’m expecting a girl’, while another said ‘They usually associate the line down your stomach with boys I’ve had 3 boys and got the line and with my 2 daughter’s I didn’t’.
A third added: ‘Boy i think. I only had pigment changes with my boy not with my 1ast 2 pregnancies which were girls’.
A fourth fan wrote: ‘Defo a boy as you have the line from the belly button up my God sister had the same x’
However, other fans seem to think Ferne will be having a little girl: ‘I’ve had two boys and never got the line and how your bump is would make me lean towards girl🙊💖’

Another said: ‘At first I thought boy but going by old wives tales it seems like your bump is sitting high… so maybe a girl x’
Ferne, who’s expected to give birth in November, announced she was pregnant back in April, following the news that her ex-boyfriend and father of her baby Arthur Collin had been arrested.
