Kimberly Wyatt is over the moon after announcing her second pregnancy on Instagram early on Easter Sunday. And talking about her happy news in an exclusive interview in the new issue of HELLO!, Kimberly has revealed that she was ecstatic to be expecting a little brother or sister for daughter Willow, two. "We always wanted Willow to have a sibling and really hoped that they would be as close in age as possible, although you don't always get to choose when these things happen," the former Pussycat Dolls star revealed.

Willow is said to be equally excited about the new arrival, with Kimberly revealing her daughter is "adamant" that she is getting a baby sister later in the year. Speaking about how the tot has taken the news, Kimberly told HELLO!: "She definitely senses there's a change coming because she wants to be close to me more, but I have to admit I kind of love that – I'll take as many cuddles as I can get. “I think she's going to be a brilliant Mummy's little helper with the baby, though, and I’m so excited to see it happen and watch their bond grow."
Kimberly admitted she suffered with morning sickness in the early stages of her pregnancy, but is focusing on staying healthy by eating nutritious meals and cutting down on her meat intake. The Quorn ambassador, who went completely vegetarian when pregnant with Willow, explained: "We don't eat beef as a family any more. We watched the Leonardo DiCaprio documentary Before the Flood, about climate change and how cows constantly emit methane, so we've weaned ourselves off it and are taking steps towards making more sustainable choices."
Now feeling better after a "tough" few weeks, Kimberly and Max can't wait to meet their new arrival. "Max is an amazing father and when I watch him with Willow, reading to her and the relationship they have, it melts my heart," Kimberly said. "We work hard but our family life is so precious – the priority – and now we're just so excited to meet our new little one."
