Louise Thompson jumped on to Instagram on Tuesday to announce that she and her partner, Ryan Libbey, were expecting a baby.
Now, the Made In Chelsea star has showcased her baby bump for the first time, posing to the side in her latest post.
A photo collection showing off a burgundy gym set slowly set up the reveal of her baby bump, captioned: "Nope. Nope. Oh hi, angles are the ultimate optical illusion.”
Louise showed fans how she angled the camera to hide her baby bump before sharing the news with fans earlier in the week, letting them in on the tricks of the trade.
However, in her final snaps, she stood to the side and revealed the bump with a side-on shot, followed by an image of her cradling her belly.
Louise’s post was filled with comments from fans, who were excited to congratulate her.
Instagram model Jess Hunt commented: “Awwwww this made me so happy.”
Presenter Davina McCall followed with: “Gorgeous x.”
This news comes just a month after Louise swore off botox in the hopes of starting a family.
Admitting to prior injections, the star decided that the risks were not worth it.
She said: "I don't want these alien substances to be floating around in my bloodstream and in my skin cells and all that stuff — I want to be as clear of that as possible."
Louise said that being away from a career in television has taken away the pressure to look “perfect”.
Louise’s relationship with Spencer Matthews on the show was one of the biggest plots to the earlier seasons of Made in Chelsea, with the couple frequently arguing before the cameras.
Louise said: "When I was working on TV, I was surrounded by people who looked pretty perfect.
"So I used to be more open-minded on surgery and Botox and fillers.
"But everything's a trend and it's all so expensive — it's just not worth it now."
When announcing the pregnancy, Louise bravely spoke about her experience of miscarriage earlier this year, which had left the couple devastated.
At the time she said: "I don't feel any guilt or blame for what happened to me. It just wasn't meant to be, and hopefully, it will create space for something beautiful in the future."
The future came sooner than she thought – congratulations Louise and Ryan.
