Katie Piper has made a very special announcement this Father’s Day – she’s expecting her second child.
The TV star took to Instagram to share the exciting news.
Katie, 33, cradled her bump in a stunning photograph, and shared a message about her and husband Richard Sutton alongside it.
She wrote: “I’m so excited to tell you all next Father’s Day my husband will be celebrating with two children!! Thank you @hellomaguk the beautiful photos will treasure forever!”
Katie and Richard already have two-year-old daughter Belle, and has previously considered adoption to expand their family.
Fans rushed to congratulate them on their big news.
One said: “Congratulations xx you are glowing”
“Omg how lovely congratulations to you all,” said another.
While another wrote: “SO BEAUTIFUL! Amazing news”
Katie, who suffered a horrific acid attack in 2008, has become a true inspiration.
The former model tied the knot with Richard in 2015.
It would appear that Katie and Richard will welcome baby number two early next year.
And meanwhile, her acid attack is being made into a movie.
In 2008, Katie’s ex-boyfriend Daniel Lynch had hired Stefan Sylvestre to throw industrial-strength sulphuric acid in her face in north London. Both were jailed for life.
Katie’s eyelids burnt away, as did most of her nose and part of an ear.
She had extensive skin grafts – and still has to suffer frequent and painful surgery to repair the damage.
