On the same day that we announced Binky Felstead's pregnancy in a world exclusive, the Made in Chelsea star was breaking the news to her friends in private. And now the mum-to-be has shared the exciting moment with her fans on Instagram.
Binky posted the sweetest photo of her girls reacting to the news showing Stephanie Pratt, Louise Thompson and Rosie Fortescue huddled around the pregnant brunette, each resting a hand on her growing baby bump.
Binky revealed: "So I told my girls last night for the first time whilst filming for the new series... All very surreal and exciting but also it's amazing to share with all of you seeing as I have grown up on this show and had a lovely loyal following since day 1. So thank you."
"So I told my girls last night for the first time," Binky revealed
Stephanie shared the same photo, writing: "We can't wait to be aunties this will be the most loved baby in the world!! So happy 4 my @BinkyFelstead."
Stevie Johnson, who has since left the show, also tweeted his former co-star: "Congrats Binks xx."
Binky's reality TV star friends Amy Childs and Lauren Pope, who starred on TOWIE, also sent their best wishes. "Congratulations @BinkyFelstead welcome to the mummy club," wrote Amy, while Lauren tweeted: "Awwww massive congratulations."

Binky announced her news to HELLO! in a world exclusive. The 26-year-old admitted that it was a "huge shock" to find out that she and her on-off boyfriend Josh 'JP' Patterson are expecting a baby.
"It's obviously been a huge shock to both of us," said Binky. "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."
The couple are expecting their first baby in the summer
And JP told HELLO! the couple are taking everything slowly when it comes to their future.
"Where we're both being very mature is with the fact that you should never get back together just because there's a baby in the picture. It has to be for the right reasons. We love each other a great deal, and there's no pressure – but you do have to take the past into consideration, where there have been a few hiccups. We're just taking it very easy."
