She's preparing to become a first-time mother, and Binky Felstead is making sure everything runs smoothly ahead of her baby's arrival. Speaking exclusively to HELLO! Magazine, the Made In Chelsea star has revealed that she will give at London's St. Mary's Hospital, the same place the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The 26-year-old is due to welcome her first child with her on-off boyfriend Josh 'JP' Patterson in June. Even though Binky's life has been well documented on the popular E4 reality TV series, the MIC star has confirmed the delivery will be a private affair.

"There won't be cameras in the delivery suite," she explained. "But you'll get to see the fun stuff. The baby shower, guessing the sex. We don't want to overexpose the baby. We want to share our excitement on the show as I have grown up on it and it's where we met."
Binky did, however, admit that she and Josh are still "unsure" about how much exposure their child will have. "It feels right but we are not sure how the baby will feature when it arrives," she admitted. "There's still a lot to talk about."

The TV personality revealed how the pregnancy was "a huge shock" to both her and JP, but also "the best surprise". The couple clarified their relationship plans, saying that they are going on dates and hanging out, but not putting pressure on themselves to get back together. "It would be silly for us to rush back into anything," she noted. "We want to focus on the future now rather than the past."
Binky - real name Alexandra - stepped into the spotlight in 2011 as one of the original cast members of Made in Chelsea. She's had her fair share of dramatic storylines, focusing on her relationships with fellow co-stars Jamie Laing, Alex Mytton and her current on-off boyfriend JP. Her fallings-out with friends including Lucy Watson and Cheska Hull have also been at the centre of scripts.
