Throughout the pandemic, Rebekah has been enjoying spending quality time with her family, and has been sharing some sweet photos of them on social media.

The proud mum revealed that she and husband Jamie Vardy had decided to keep their baby's gender a secret from their four other children – Megan, Taylor, Sofia and Finley – until after Olivia's arrival.

Doting mum Rebekah explained: "We wanted it to be a surprise. Somehow we managed to keep it under wraps. When Jamie and I were decorating Olivia's nursery, we wouldn't let anyone up there. We'd lock ourselves in then hide the key."

The former I'm a Celebrity star added that if her children had seen so much as a glimpse of the wallpaper, they would have known that they were going to have a sister.

She continued: "If the kids had seen the pink bow wallpaper or the lovely pink rocking chair it would have given the game away."
