Proudly cradling her bump in the photo, the star later took to Instagram Stories to admit that she was worried she'd be shamed for doing so, but that she had to remind herself to ignore any stigma.

"Do you know what, I actually almost put on that previous video, 'sorry for touching my bump all the time,' and then I had to stop myself… and be like wait a minute why am I apologising for that," she said to the camera.

She added: "Because it's my natural reaction and I was trying to show off the shape of the dress, but I guess it's because I've seen so many people be shamed for touching their bump. But who cares, I'm not apologising for that!"

Ashley and her boyfriend Tom Andrews announced in July that they're expecting a baby. In their exclusive interview with HELLO!, Ashley said: "From the moment I found out, it felt so right. It's been such a 360-degree shift for me. I've never been that maternal. When friends have been like: 'I want to meet someone, settle down and have children,' I never felt the same. I guess I've been a free spirit."
