Congratulations to Dawn O'Porter and her husband Chris O'Dowd! The married couple, who have been together since 2009, are expecting their second child together. Dawn, 37, made the happy announcement at the end of her Get It On podcast on Tuesday.

"Hope your 2017 is going really well," she told her listeners. "Mine certainly is. I am starting a new novel this week, I'm about to turn 38 and I am pregnant." She later joked: "So I'll be investing in a lot of elasticated trousers and dusting off all my old vintage tents, not unlike a lot of people in January."

Fans of the star were quick to congratulate the pair, including close friend and former X Factor host Caroline Flack who tweeted: "OMG ! Listen to the end... congratulations DAWN AND CHRIS! Another little bun in the oven." To which, Dawn replied, "it looks more like a loaf! Thanks love xxxx."

Dawn O'Porter and Chris O'Dowd are expecting a second baby

Dawn and Bridesmaid star Chris, 37 - who have been married for over four years - are already parents to one-year-old son Art. Shortly after the birth of their little boy in 2015, the TV personality described motherhood as a "wonderful" experience. She told HELLO! Online: "I really love him. I was very ready to be a mum, so was ready for the challenge. And he’s healthy and cute so I’m very grateful for that."

After the stars tied the knot, Dawn decided to switch her name from Porter to O'Porter, in honour of her husband. She previously opened up about fame and her loving relationship with Chris, telling MailOnline: "I thank God I met Chris when all that was going on, because if I hadn’t I might have really hit rock bottom. We got together just as Chris’s career was taking off, so we experienced it together. Because it was all happening for him, I still got to live this amazing life."
