Shelby announced her pregnancy with boyfriend Sam last week after sharing a loving snap as she cradled her baby bump while her co-star beau held up an ultrasound snap.
She has since thanked her followers for all of their well-wishes and penned: ‘THANK YOU [red hear]… I just wanted to thank every single person who has congratulated myself and Sam whether it’s in the comments, direct messages and texts. ‘
Expressing her excitement, she said: ‘I am so excited to be a mummy and even better that I can do it with the love of my life beside me.’
Shelby and Sam have had a turbulent relationship, which was well documented on TOWIE.
The couple began sleeping with each other on a ‘friends with benefits’ basis but things soon turned sour when Sam decided to pursue a romance with TOWIE newbie Demi Sims while on a group trip to Thailand last year.
During a heated row, Sam called Shelby a ‘s**g’ but months later, the couple decided to give things another go.
However, they were met with opposition when Shelby’s best friend Clelia Theodorou told her she had felt deserted because Shelby was spending all her time with Sam.
The former BFF’s had several bitter rows, with Clelia accusing her of not being there for her when she was at her lowest point after splitting from her boyfriend (Sam’s best friend).
It was then Shelby and Sam decided to step back from TOWIE in order to focus on their romance.
