Fearne Cotton is expecting her second child with husband Jesse Wood

Fearne announced that she was expecting her second child with husband Jesse Wood in February, saying that she felt "extremely blessed and happy that Rex will be a big brother". Speaking to HELLO! Online in March, Fearne said she wouldn't be finding out the baby's gender, adding: "I'll be happy with either."

The 33-year-old has been enjoying some downtime with her family as she approaches her due date, and revealed in June that she isn't putting any pressure on herself to return to work too soon following her maternity leave.

"I've always had a plan, always known either 'that's what I want to do' or I've been doing it," she told Red magazine. "But having a baby gave me a lioness confidence and complete shift about how I looked at the business. I didn't take it as seriously and I wasn't as obsessed."

The 33-year-old, who left her job at BBC Radio 1 in May, added that she will wait for an "amazing opportunity" to pop up.

"If an amazing opportunity came in, then I would do it," she revealed. "But if there wasn't anything really grabbing me, I would be very content being at home with the kids."

Indeed the mum appears to be enjoying her time at home judging by her Instagram feed. Fearne has been taking the opportunity to cook up a storm, including baking a homemade Irish tea cake for her father-in-law Ronnie Wood on Thursday which she revealed "went down pretty well".

The new addition to Fearne's family will undoubtedly bring them some joy following the sad loss of her grandmother Ruby on Monday. Fearne shared the news with her fans on Twitter, writing: "The stars will shine brighter tonight."
