Catherine is delighted; speaking to Hello magazine, she said: “It just feels 100% right.” Catherine and Tom’s baby is due next March, a Spring baby.

“If you’d told me that before my next birthday I would meet someone as amazing as Tom, the person I want to spend the rest of my life with, and we were going to be planning for our first baby, I wouldn’t have believed you in a million years.

“It’s like everything has gone fast forward, but it’s not remotely scary. It just feels 100% right, which is very different for me because I am the world’s most indecisive person. I will ask everybody’s opinion on everything, whereas I am totally sure about this. I feel strongly being a mother is something I am supposed to do.”

Catherine met 27 year-old Tom at Cheshire’s Hale Country Club where he works as a personal trainer and says it did not take her long to realise he was the man for her:

“People say when you meet the right man you know. I never believed it. I thought, ‘You need to know someone.’ But after three months I knew he was absolutely The One. It’s the most amazing feeling.”
