"We are having a baby," he confirmed.
The couple have admitted that they were shocked to discover that they were expecting their first child together, and are focusing on trying to work out the future status of their relationship.
"It’s obviously been a huge shock to both of us," Binky says of her on-off boyfriend JP. "This is a new start and a new chapter in our lives. I want to be a little family, to be honest. But I'm going to be ok either way. Whatever happens, this baby is not going to be affected. And I know Josh will be part of the baby’s life whether we are together or not. We are a unit now."
