Sam Faiers stepped out for the first time since announcing her pregnancy news on Thursday evening. The TOWIE star, who has just returned from a holiday with her boyfriend Paul Knightley, enjoyed a night out at the Chiltern Firehouse with friends.
The mum-to-be looked stylish in a black bodycon dress and khaki cape coat, which she pulled across her stomach to conceal her growing baby bump. Sam left her boyfriend at home for the night out, where she was joined by friends including The Apprentice star Luisa Zissman.

It emerged on Friday that Sam was around three-months pregnant with her first child following a whirlwind romance with her property developer boyfriend. The couple are said to be "very excited" about the new arrival.
"They are really thrilled and really looking forward to being first time parents together," a source told The Mirror.
The 24-year-old later confirmed the news with an Instagram post of herself and Paul smiling together on Sunday, which she captioned with a baby emoji.

Sam has since thanked her fans for their congratulatory messages on Twitter, writing: "I have been reading all your kind tweets thank you so much."
While she is "thrilled" at the prospect of becoming a mother, Sam joked on Friday that she is already suffering with "baby brain". The glamorous blonde shared a photo from a beauty salon telling her 1.3 million followers that she had mistakenly worn skinny jeans despite knowing she was going for a pedicure.
"Left the house in skinny leg jeans, knowing full well I was getting a pedicure - #currentsituation #babybrain," she captioned the image, which showed her sitting barelegged with a coat across her lap.
Sam's baby is believed to be due in February, with the new addition serving as a little playmate for her sister Billie Faiers' daughter Nelly. The reality TV star dotes over her little niece and recently shared a video of the youngster playing around on Instagram, writing: "Morning fun with my little nelly noo."
