Fans of Sam Faiers have been following her pregnancy with excitement and wondering if she will welcome a little boy or a little girl in three months time. They will have to wait a little while longer to find out, however. Speaking exclusively to HELLO! Online at the launch of her fragance Pure, the 24-year-old TV star revealed that she and partner Paul Knightley have decided not to find out the gender of their child.
"We don't know the sex of the baby and we aren't going to find out," she confided. "We did consider it for a while but we have decided that we want to keep it as a surprise, not just for our family and friends but also for ourselves."

Sam also said the couple are holding out a bit longer before they start thinking about possible names. "I think when we do decide on a name that we will keep it a secret as it's so easy for people to change your mind on a name once they hear it," she said. "And once we've decided I think Paul and I will want to stick with it.
"Sometimes it takes seeing a baby for the first time before you decide on a final name as well. I always remember (sister) Billie being really keen on Elsie for Nelly, but then when she saw her she didn't think it suited her, so I guess we will have to wait and see."
Sam confirmed her pregnancy news back in August
Sam confirmed her pregnancy at the end of August, sharing a sweet photo of herself with Paul along with a tell-tale baby emoji and a love heart.
"I have been really lucky that I haven't felt poorly at all, and it's all gone very smoothly so far," Sam added. "Hopefully I don't jinx myself and my labour is just as easy as my pregnancy has been.
