Katie Piper shows off her baby bump as she reveals her due date in sweet Instagram snap

Expectant mum Katie Piper has shared the news of her due date with an adorable photo snap of herself cradling her growing bump.

Wearing a pair of on-trend leopard print pyjama bottoms and a t-shirt emblazoned with the words ‘Guess what Santa’s bringing me?’ Katie revealed that baby number two is due to arrive over the Christmas period.

Katie first posted an image to Instagram sharing with her 555k followers that she’d finished her book signings – but beady-eyed fans were swift to pick up on the t-shirt the mum-to be chose to wear.

The questioning then forced her to share this pic, captioning the happy snap with: ‘You guys don’t miss a thing!! No it’s not Xmas PJs- it’s a Tshirt from my #KPmaternity range @wantthattrend so cute right???? 👶🏾 my due date is Christmas 🎅🏾’

The mum-of one received a flood of congratulatory messages from fans as soon as she revealed the lovely news.

‘Awwww so adorable ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️’ said one fan, while another commented: ‘my daughter was due Dec 21st but she decided that Xmas day was a much better day to be born! Good luck x’

One couldn’t help but comment on the types of Christmas-inspired baby names Katie could go for: ‘Oh amazing, think if all the Christmasy names… Holly, Noel, Eve, Winter…. Ax💫’

The 33-year-old, who is already mum to three-year-old Belle, revealed recently that she has to have a Caesarean section with this birth – like she had to with her first daughter – due to the horrific acid attack she suffered in 2008.

‘I’m a bit restricted,’ the model admitted, ‘because I have medical problems, I have scar tissue in my stomach.’

‘Last time I had to have a Caesarean so I think I have to follow the same birthing plan.’

Talking to MailOnline, Katie added that Belle is incredibly excited to meet the newest member of their family.

‘She’s telling everyone else that she’s pregnant as well, which is quite funny considering she’s three!’ she joked.
