She is expecting her third child and announced the happy news just last week.
But pregnant Binky Felstead has revealed that she will feel constant anxiety until she can hold her baby in her arms after previously suffering a miscarriage – as she shared her first bump snap.
The former Made In Chelsea star, 32, took to her Instagram Story to do a Q&A on Thursday where she responded to a fan who asked: ‘What did you do to ease anxiety waiting for the 12 week scan after a miscarriage?’

She replied: ‘So for me, and it was the same with Wolfie, I think I am always going to have this anxiety until I get this baby in my arms. Going to scans is always terrifying now.
‘I even had an early week scan at seven weeks and the lady doing the scan could see a little bit of blood where the baby was and like with my miscarriage there was no blood in my knickers, then there was blood for about a week and I kept being told it was fine until we were told there was no heartbeat.
‘So this time I really freaked out and went on my Bloss app and clicked into the pregnancy section of the clinic we typed in what had happened and within a few minutes one of our experts replied saying this is totally normal and fine!’

Ahead of the Q&A she shared her first bump snap as she donned a grey sports bra and tight leggings.
Binky is already a parent to son Wolfie, 17 months, with husband Max Darnton, as well as daughter India, five, with her ex-boyfriend and former TV co-star, Josh ‘JP’ Patterson.
In October 2020 Binky revealed she had sadly suffered a miscarriage earlier that year.

She was expecting her second child – her first with Max – but sadly miscarried at the 12 week mark, leaving the couple ‘heartbroken’.
She wrote: ‘I’ve thought long and hard about doing this post, but I felt that if I can pass on any warmth, comfort or help to anybody in the same position – well that would be great. It’s only fair that I share some of my ‘downs’ as well as my ‘up’ moments.
‘Today would have been my 18 week mark, but sadly we had an early miscarriage just before 12 weeks. Not only was this heartbreaking for us, but it also came as such a shock to me.
Happy news: Binky announced her third pregnancy in an Instagram post shared with followers on Sunday morning as she posed with husband Max and her children India and Wolfie
‘I hadn’t realised until then how blessed I was with having such a relatively straight forward pregnancy with India – I’ll admit I was naive enough to assume the next one would be as straightforward, but I had two early scans as I was concerned I was bleeding. They found a ‘very strong’ heartbeat. However, on the third scan I was told ‘I’m afraid there’s no heartbeat’.
‘I was told by my doctor that 1 in 4 pregnancies miscarry (not that statistics make it any easier!) With 82% of my following being women – that means roughly 237,800 women ‘following’ me could (or have) experienced the same, which is just so sad.
‘When speaking to a few close friends about our situation, we learned that some of them too have had miscarriages in the past. I asked them why they’ve never said anything, and they just said they felt they couldn’t, or shouldn’t talk about it. Almost like it’s a taboo subject, which is heartbreaking.
‘If you have been through this, I hope you are giving yourself time to mentally and physically heal and do what you need. I keep reminding myself that there was nothing I could have done, and perhaps this was nature’s way of saying that for whatever reason, this little soul wasn’t ready for the world. Sending so so much love .
‘I later learned that @miscarriageassociation is available to help anyone who has/is experiencing this. It’s a national charity that provides support and information for anyone who’s affected by miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, this includes both women and men.
How at least one in six pregnancies ends in a miscarriage
One in six pregnancies in women who know they are pregnant become miscarriages.
But even more happen among women who don’t know they have conceived.
Miscarriage occurs when a pregnancy is lost within the first 23 weeks after conception.
The main symptoms are bleeding from the vagina, which may be accompanied by lower abdominal pain.
There are various reasons women may have a miscarriage – it is common and is not usually caused by something they have done.
If a miscarriage happens in the second trimester – between weeks 14 and 26 – it may be a sign of an underlying problem.
Often, miscarriages are isolated events and women will go on to have successful pregnancies.
The majority of miscarriages can’t be prevented, although being generally healthy will help reduce the risk.
Losing three or more pregnancies in a row – known as recurrent miscarriages – is uncommon but still affects around one in 100 women.
‘You can call their helpline or talk to them on live chat or even message them on Instagram, and they will do whatever they can to help you through.’
Binky announced her third pregnancy in an Instagram post shared with followers on Sunday morning.
The beauty posted a video of herself and businessman husband Max revealing the unborn child’s first ultrasound scan while out with their blended family.
Sharing a sweet family video with her 1.4million followers, she wrote: ‘Imagine thinking you’re nearing the “oh so quiet” phase again…. Taurus baby coming in hot’
Revealing the joyous news on social media, Binky revealed the baby will be a Taurus – meaning the due date will be between around 20 April to 20 May next year.
The announcement came in the form of a woodland video, featuring Binky, Max, India and Wolfie, with hit Bjork track Oh So Quiet playing in the background.
The former reality star was filmed walking around the leafy park hand-in-hand with her children as they enjoyed a day out.
Max handed his step-daughter India a rainbow gift bag during the walk, with the youngster opening it to find a string of ultrasound pictures of her new sibling.
A delighted Binky leaned down and beamed at her daughter, who then jumped for joy while holding the pictures.
Max simply wrote celebratory emojis on his wife’s post, while reposting the video on his own Instagram page, writing: ‘Can’t wait.’
Binky and Max’s baby news comes three and a half months after the couple tied the knot in a three-day celebration in Corfu, surrounded by their friends and family.
The announced mirrored that of Binky’s last pregnancy reveal in 2020, when she told followers she was expecting Wolfie.
At the time, she shared the news by having India hold up a row of ultrasound scan pictures – in the same way the youngster did for this announcement.
Binky then welcomed Wolfie, her first child with Max, back in June 2021 – sharing the new arrival with a sweet snap from hospital of the trio.
The TV personality birth to India in June 2017, but split from ex Josh just over a year later in September 2018, citing that it was ‘unfair’ on India to stay together.

Binky found love again with Max and the couple announced that they were engaged after 19 months of dating in September 2020.
Gushing about the proposal via Instagram, which took place after he asked her daughter for permission to pop the question, she wrote: ‘The easiest “Yes” EVER!’
Max popped the question in a picturesque field in the English countryside.
The pair have been going strong ever since meeting at separate parties at private members’ club Soho Farmhouse in January 2019.
