"It's everything I could have hoped for times about ten," Zoe told HELLO!. "I'm watching my body change daily, which is weird and wonderful. I've never felt more beautiful, actually. I'm not thinking about the birth, I'm not thinking about getting the nursery ready, I'm literally just thinking, 'Today is such a magical day.'"
In the interview, the couple also talk about their whirlwind romance, which began just over a year ago.
"She shunned me for the first few attempts but I finally got a date just over a year ago," admits Paul. "And the rest is history. We haven't looked back. For me, I knew the minute I first saw her, but she just needed a little nudge."
Adds Zoe: "I know he'll be a complete constant when the baby comes. I am in safe hands with this one. He's one of the good eggs."
And they say that Paul's three-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, Isla, helped them decide they were ready to have children together.
"My daughter's the best thing that's happened to me – we're so close," Paul said. "One of the amazing things about Zoe is how close she is with Isla, too. Seeing Zoe around my daughter just confirmed everything for me."
