Danniella Westbrook has spoken out following reports she is expecting a baby with her new fiancé, Alan Thomason. The 43-year-old was asked about the claims during an appearance on Good Morning Britain on Monday, and denied that she was pregnant following the couple's whirlwind romance. "If you believe everything you read in the papers, apparently today I'm pregnant," she told hosts Kate Garraway and Jeremy Kyle. "I'm just fat at the moment… because I'm happy!" Asked directly by Jeremy whether she was carrying a child, she replied: "Not the last time I looked, no!"

Danniella and 34-year-old Alan recently returned for a romantic holiday together in Spain, where the actress was photographed flashing a huge diamond ring on her engagement finger. After much speculation, she took to Twitter to confirm her plans to tie the knot. Daniella updated her bioline to read: "Momma, Actress, presenter, writer, fiancé 2 Alan Thomason, loyal friend & West Ham supporter." She also pinned a tweet that shows a photo of the couple kissing in the sea. "For once I actually don't care that the press got his name & age wrong. But for the record he's Alan Thomason he's 34 & he completes me #MyMan," she wrote.
