Ferne McCann announces she’s pregnant with first child to fiancé Lorri Haines and addresses voice note saga

Ferne McCann has revealed she is pregnant with her first child to her fiancé Lorri Haines. The former TOWIE star, 32, announced the joyous news by sharing an exclusive OK! photoshoot with her 2.9 million followers where she showed off her growing baby bump.

The TV star, who is already a proud mum to her five-year-old daughter Sunday from a previous relationship, told her fans: “We are having a baby. We have been bursting at the seams with happiness and so excited to officially share our lovely news with you.”

Ferne started dating Lorri, 31, after meeting in Dubai back in 2021. The businessman, who has a son called Noah, proposed to Ferne in France back in July 2022. The couple, who have been documenting their relationship in Ferne’s ITV reality show First Time Mum, will welcome their first child together this summer.

In their exclusive shoot Ferne revealed their baby name ideas, birth plan and what her daughter Sunday will be like as a big sister.

Revealing that they have decided not to find out the gender of their baby, Ferne told OK!: ““I would love a girl, just because I’ve got my girl’s name and I feel like a girl mum because I’ve got Sunday,” she added: “I can only see myself with girls.”

“I don’t know if I can live in a house with four girls,” Lorri laughed.

“The puppy [cockapoo Clemmie] is a girl, Ferne, Sunday, and then [possibly] the baby is a girl… my son’s there a few times a week, I think that would drive him nuts as well!”

In the interview Ferne also addressed the leaked voice notes which circulated online.

Last November an anonymous Instagram account began leaking damning voice notes claiming to be from Ferne, talking about Billie Shephard and Sam Faiers.

“It will be addressed on the show, but there’s not a lot I can say, which is so frustrating,” Ferne explained.

“I am definitely someone who has always worn their heart on their sleeve and been transparent with anyone I meet, especially my followers and the people who watch my show.

“The frustration comes from just not being able to be fully transparent and I cannot wait to share my full truth and the full story, but unfortunately, I can’t because there is the criminal investigation and for that reason I can’t go into detail.

“What I will say is we just want to look forward as a family, working as a team and remaining positive because that’s all you can be.”

The new series of Ferne McCann: First Time Mum is available on ITVBe and ITVX on 15 March at 9pm.
