WATCH: Behind-the-scenes With Dr Zoe And Stuart Mckay as they announce pregnancy

And she tells the magazine how she is now thinking of having a home birth, after originally considering an elective caesarean.

"I came into this pregnancy with a doctor's mindset," she tells HELLO! during an exclusive shoot at Hampton Court Palace, which recently reopened to the public. "Having worked in obstetrics and gynaecology, I've been exposed to many more complicated births than straightforward ones. But we've got a doula who's attended many births and she is helping me readdress what my ideas are around everything. Thinking about a home birth is a massive shift for me, although I'm still weighing up all my options."

Dr Zoe can't wait to meet her baby! 

Zoe, who was attending Hampton Court's first ever Tulip Festival, also reveals she isn't planning to stay away from the This Morning set for long after she gives birth.

"There are some things I'll probably continue – for example, I'd be quite keen to get back to doing This Morning once a week as I'm sure I can take the baby in with me. They'll want to meet him or her as it's a bit like a family there."

"It's very exciting that we're going to get to create a nursery from scratch."
