Abi Titmuss has announced she is expecting her first child.

The actress has revealed that the baby will arrive in September, four months after she weds her American partner, the actor Ari Welkom.

Speaking to Hello magazine, the actress said: “I’m 15 weeks pregnant…I’m so excited about becoming a mum for the first time.

“I’d been bursting to share the news sooner but we hadn’t had the all-clear from the doctor so I had to hold back.

“I found out I was expecting in the second week of January and it has been very hard keeping it a secret until now.”
