The 34-year-old’s post received a lot of love from fans, with lots rushing to send their congratulations.

‘She’s absolutely beautiful Heidi. Huge congratulations to you and Alex. Enjoy every moment,’ said one.

Another added: ‘Heidi she is absolutely amazing congratulations to you all and well done πŸ˜˜πŸ’žπŸ˜ @hrange29 xxx.’

Celebrity Big Brother presenter Emma Willis, 41, also left a lovely message below her friend’s adorable post.

‘Congratulations you absolute beauty!’

And 45-year-old actress turned chef Lisa Faulkner quipped: ‘Congratulations! What lovely news.’

Heidi tied the knot with her daughter’s father Alex Partakis in 2016.

The pretty star couldn’t believe her luck when she found out she was expecting less than a year after they got married.

‘Our wedding was amazing and then I had hoped I would fall pregnant straight away. But as each month went by, I would take a test and I got used to it always being negative,’ she told Hello! magazine.

‘So when it came back positive it was a shock. Alex was asleep and I came running into the bedroom with a stick, saying, ‘Is that a cross? Am I pregnant?’

Heidi found fame back in 2001 when she replaced SiobhΓ‘n Donaghy in British girl group Sugababes. The band decided to part ways in 2011.
