TOWIE’s Pascal Craymer reveals she is expecting her first child

Pascal Craymer has revealed that she is expecting her first child.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star revealed that she is expecting her first child when she stepped out with a baby bump at an awards event earlier this week.

Attending the World Fashion Awards yesterday evening, the 32-year-old confirmed that she is four and a half months pregnant, showing off her growing baby bump in a stylish fitted electric blue wrap dress.

Cradling her baby bump with a beaming smile on her face, the mum-to-be, who is in a relationship with 31-year-old insurance broker Mark Baptist, the former reality star seemed proud to announce to the world that she has a baby on the way.

The exciting announcement comes only days after the TV star, who appeared on the Essex-based reality show back in 2013 when she was dating Mario Falcone, opened up on mental health, following the death of former Love Island star Mike Thalassitis.

Admitting that she had attempted suicide five times in the past, the expectant mum told The Sun: ‘Reality television is killing people. It almost killed me.’

The ex-model revealed that she became severely depressed and ended up developing anorexia and an alcohol addiction, which led her to be sectioned.

The 32-year-old, who is now in recovery, said that the pressure of fame and social media is to blame for TV stars’ deteriorating mental health.

‘These shows chew you up and spit you out,’ she added. ‘They take vulnerable people and turn them into celebrities overnight without any concern what happens once the fame fades.’

‘I was only on Towie for a short stint but it has tarnished me forever.’

‘I could not get any more modelling work after I left and was dragged into a dark and lonely world that almost cost me my life,’ she continued.

‘I am lucky I was saved’ she said. ‘Now I want to do everything I can to help other people and warn them of the dangers. More needs to be done to control these shows. Life is too precious to throw it all away.’

Big congrats to Pascal on her exciting news.
