At the time, she also revealed she had a miscarriage earlier in the year. "At the beginning of the year, I had a miscarriage which left me heartbroken," she wrote on social media. "I feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant again but I’ve also felt like a bag of nerves.

"Fertility issues can be really hard for many people, particularly when on platforms like Instagram it can look like everything is only ever going well." She added: "I found it a real comfort to hear from people who had also experienced loss so I hope that in some very small way sharing this might help others too."

Alongside her heartfelt caption, Carrie also posted a picture of a blue pram Christmas decoration.
