"He just can't wait. We're hoping for a little boy maybe but we don't know. They are super excited, we all are. It's a massive blessing," said Jaime, whose baby is due in February.

The 30-year-old added, "I feel great. It's a nice stage in my life. I'm 30 and was starting to think about taking my career in a bit more of a serious direction but weirdly it planned out to be exactly what I wanted. It's great."

Jaime appeared on Lorraine to promote her new sitcom, After Hours and revealed how she took inspiration from her sister for her new role. "My character has a band called Bad Weekends, a real indie band, it's kind of strange and very surreal really. My sister is a musician - a great one at that - and I loosely took from Lois, my sister, and based it on her, although it's nothing like her, Lois is a lot more rock and roll. It was a real experience."

The new show, which airs on Sky1 Sitcom, sees the mum-to-be singing, something she said she really enjoyed.

"At first I was kind of really nervous, but then once I got into it and it felt like Lauren [her character] was singing and not Jaime. It was fine. Usually you get asked to sing and you go bright red, it’s not your territory, but I really enjoyed it actually. It was a bit of an out-of-body experience."

She jokingly added, "Maybe I am in the wrong game!"
