"It's true - I'm pregnant. It's the most brilliant news and, along with marrying Wayne, the best thing that's ever happened to me," says the 23-year-old. "It's something we both wanted and we feel incredibly lucky and happy.
Colleen has also revealed that they don't know the sex of the baby, but: "We really don't mind as long as he or she is healthy and grows up happy."
With a child of their own on the way, her thoughts have also turned to the possibility of adoption. "(It) does appeal to me because my little sister was adopted, but I think we'd like a family of our own first.
"Maybe we'd consider it after that."
