In an exclusive interview and photoshoot with Hello! magazine, Katie Piper reveals she is pregnant with her second child. The 33-year-old TV presenter, author and charity campaigner and her husband, carpenter Richard Sutton already have three-year-old daughter Belle. And, she tells Hello!, the couple are delighted. “Becoming a mum has enriched my life in ways I never imagined and I feel so thankful to be experiencing that again,” she says.
Katie Piper is expecting her second baby
Of her second pregnancy, she tells the magazine: “I have felt really nauseous and tired with this pregnancy and don’t recall it being that way with Belle. But I don’t want to sound like I’m moaning because we’re over the moon and really excited.” Katie also tells the magazine that she and Richard had been trying for a second baby for a while. “I’ve been asked so many times if we were planning to have another child. The truth is, we were trying for about a year and a half, but that’s such a private and emotional thing when you’re going through it,” says Katie.

And Belle, she says, is already a doting big sister to the baby, which is due on New Year’s Eve. “This morning, when I was getting dressed, Belle came over and kissed my tummy,” says Katie. “I asked what she thinks I’m having and she said, ‘A girl, like me’. I really don’t have a preference, but I have a special bond with my own sister Suzy, who’s also pregnant, so another girl would be lovely. I know Richie would love a son to play football with, but, honestly, we’re thrilled either way.”
