She’s now estimated to be five months pregnant and Sam Faiers’ baby bump is beginning to show. But her tummy is seemingly not big enough yet to be obvious to all members of the general public – especially those on public transport.
The expectant reality star was left to stand when she boarded a busy train on Thursday and none of her fellow passengers offered up their seats.
Sam Faiers - pictures heading out to work last week - was left stranding on a busy train when no one noticed her baby bump
Appearing to take it in her stride, Sam recounted the incident to her 1.26 million Twitter followers. "Busy busy train, no seat for me," she wrote.
"My little bump isn't helping me out today, haha. Need my pregnant on board badge @sarahnewn got me," she finished, including the Twitter handle of her BFF Sarah Newnham.
The TOWIE star’s fans were quick to rush to her defence on the social networking site, with one branding the situation "shameful" and several others telling her to file a complaint. Another fan remarked that passengers probably didn’t notice that the star is pregnant as she is so slim, adding: "you look fab!"
The pretty star is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Paul Knightley
Sam certainly looked a million dollars last week as she headed out in London to promote her new fragrance and fake tan range.
The star was glowing as she stepped out in a stylish grey roll neck midi dress, teamed with a checked coat and black fringed boots. She could not keep the smile from her face as she headed to work, just weeks after announcing that she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Paul Knightley.
The couple have just returned from a romantic holiday in the South of France
The couple have been dating for almost a year after meeting at a bar in Essex in October, and are said to be over the moon at the prospect of becoming first-time parents together.
"They are really thrilled and really looking forward to being first time parents together," a source told The Mirror.
The 24-year-old confirmed the couple's happy news with an Instagram post of herself and Paul smiling together, which she captioned with a baby emoji.
