Vogue Williams is expecting her second child, a girl, with husband Spencer Matthews.
The presenter, 34, and the former Made In Chelsea star, 31, announced the happy news in this week’s HELLO! magazine after welcoming their son Theodore in September 2018.
The Irish beauty, who is currently five-and-a-half months pregnant, admitted that while the couple are ‘excited’ to expand their family, they ‘had a few bumps in the road this time round’.

Vogue revealed she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) – a condition which affects a woman’s ovaries.
The Irish beauty told the publication: ‘We’re delighted. It’s so exciting but kind of scary to think we’re going to have another newborn. There’s no doubt that I feel lucky to be having another baby.’
The TV host – who revealed she was expecting Theodore at the three-month mark in March 2018 – revealed the couple have been trying to conceive since last summer and decided to ‘keep it under wraps for longer’ as the pregnancy ‘hasn’t been as straight forward the last one’.
Vogue said: ‘It was certainly a different path for us this time, so it’s really nice to be here and talking about it now. I wouldn’t say alarm bells were going off, but we did wonder how we could make it work a bit more efficiently.’

PCOS is a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work, with symptoms including excess androgen, polycystic ovaries and irregular periods – which can make it difficult to get pregnant as a result of irregular/failed ovulation.
Looking ahead to welcoming their new addition, the Jump star – who previously made a pregnancy pact with mother-to-be Millie Mackintosh – said she has already bought ‘an obscene amount of clothes’ for her daughter, branding her unborn child ‘my little doll’.
On experimenting with ‘exotic’ names, Clean Liquor Company founder Spencer shared: ‘There won’t be any degree of stupidity to the name though. I think you can be fresh, and new and different, but it has got a bit silly in a few cases. So we’ll try and rein it in.’
WHAT IS POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work.
The three main features of PCOS are:
- Irregular periods – which means the ovaries don’t regularly release eggs (ovulation). This can affect a woman’s ability to get pregnant.
- Excess androgen – high levels of ‘male hormones’ in the body, which may cause physical signs such as excess facial or body hair.
- Polycystic ovaries – the ovaries become enlarged and contain many fluid-filled sacs (follicles) which surround the eggs (it’s important to note that, despite the name, if you have PCOS you don’t actually have cysts).

Vogue poked fun at her own moniker as she chimed in: ‘But nothing absolutely crazy. There’s not another Vogue on the way – most definitely not!’
The model also claimed her toddler son ‘won’t be overly jealous’ as he’s ‘fascinated’ by newborn babies.
In an accompanying photoshoot, the Lorraine star highlighted her baby bump in a silk slip dress, while her handsome partner looked typically cool in a navy jumper and indigo jeans.
Vogue and Spencer fell in love when they competed against each other on the Channel 4 celebrity ski show The Jump in 2017.
Sparks flew when Vogue was forced to pull out of the ski slopes early because of an injured knee with Spencer winning her affections when he looked after her following her injury.
It was a true whirlwind romance, with the pair moving in together after seven months of dating.
They got engaged in February 2018 when Spencer got down on one knee after treating Vogue to a backstage tour of the West End’s Lion King production.
The TV stars married on his family’s stunning 10,000 acre Glen Affric estate in Cannich, Scotland the same summer, surrounded by close family and friends.
One year later, they enjoyed a second wedding reception in London in front of their close friends and wider family.
Spencer previously admitted he had no doubts about tying the knot with Vogue and starting a family with because she made him want to give up his ‘selfish’ lifestyle.
Formerly known for his Lothario lifestyle and famous exes, things changed dramatically when he met Vogue.
The TV star can’t believe how much his life has changed – for the better. Discussing becoming a family man, Spencer told MailOnline: ‘I was always pretty selfish.
‘Vogue and I weren’t looking for a serious relationship at the time we met and I think that’s probably part of the reason why we became so close as friends first. It made sense.
‘I recognised a lot of Vogue in me and vice versa. We fit, we were very compatible together – even my mum thinks we’re similar! She’s my best mate. When Vogue came around, that was me done.
‘[When you meet The One] all of a sudden, you want to put other people first. Of course you think about yourself and your work, but ultimately Vogue and Theodore are what matters.’

Vogue previously revealed the secret to success with their relationship is that they never argue.
She told The Sunday Mirror: ‘He is my best pal. I remember thinking we would be best friends forever. It is the first relationship where I don’t have fights with people.’
Spencer’s older brother James is married to Pippa Middleton, the sister of The Duchess of Cambridge.
His parents David and Jane Matthews, owners of Eden Rock Hotel in St Barths – one of the top 100 hotels in the world, an asset he is believed to have shares in.
Vogue was married to former Westlife singer Brian McFadden from 2012 to 2015, while Spencer previously dated former MIC co-stars Louise Thompson, Caggie Dunlop and Lucy Watson.
