Earlier in November, Rachel opened up about her birthing plans exclusively to HELLO!, revealing that her pregnancy has been going well so far. She said: "I've been lucky as it's been plain sailing so far and I'm hoping that's a good indication for the birth and the baby."

The TV star added: "I'm really enjoying being pregnant. People are so nice and every time someone gives you a seat on the Tube or helps you with your bag, it’s so nice. I’m hoping for a natural birth. We’ve got a doula and I’m going to try hypnobirthing."
