My Kitchen Rules star Ash Pollard announced on Tuesday that she’s expecting her first child with boyfriend Pete Ferne.

Ash gave Gawndy a pair of hospital-grade gloves, a blindfold and a box, thinking he was taking part in a mystery box challenge.
Inside the box was Ash’s pregnancy test, which he smelt while trying to workout what the item was.
‘It smells like nothing, I can’t smell anything on that,’ Gawndy said, guessing it was a pregnancy test.

Ash has been dating boyfriend Pete Ferne, 35, since 2017.
Last month, she revealed on her radio show that she has polycystic ovary syndrome and was told it could made it difficult to start a family.
She teared up when she admitted that she felt forced to choose between her career and having a baby.
‘All I want to do is keep going leaps and bounds in my career but now I’m like, what do I do? Do I think about my career or do I think about having a kid?’ she said at the time.
WHAT IS POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work which can lead to fertility issues.
The three main features of PCOS are:
Irregular periods – which means the ovaries don’t regularly release eggs (ovulation). This can affect a woman’s ability to get pregnant.
Excess androgen – high levels of ‘male hormones’ in the body, which may cause physical signs such as excess facial or body hair.
Polycystic ovaries – the ovaries become enlarged and contain many fluid-filled sacs (follicles) which surround the eggs and can stop thme from being released (it’s important to note that, despite the name, if you have PCOS you don’t actually have cysts).
