The post comes almost one month after Kara exclusively announced to HELLO! that she and her Norwegian fiancé Marius Jensen are expecting their second child together. "I think this year has brought so many things in different ways. At the beginning of the year I was due to start a play, and now I am at home in a little cocoon and pregnant," the 37-year-old shared.

"We really wanted a sibling for Frey. So we said: 'If it happens, it happens; let's go with the flow,' and it happened much quicker than we expected. I did the test in May. We weren't shocked but it was a surprise, and we feel so lucky," added Kara.

The former Strictly Come Dancing champion is already six months pregnant and will be giving birth to a boy, who will be a little brother for the couple's first-born son Frey.

Kara and Marius had hoped to tie the knot this year on a lawn by a beautiful fjord where Marius's grandfather grew up. However, their special day has been put on pause for the time being. "It keeps getting put on hold," she said.

"But I like to do things when I'm in a place to enjoy it, so if you can't do that now, then why rush? It will be much nicer to get married in a celebratory way when we can enjoy it with family."
