This Mother’s Day is an extra-special one for Ferne McCann. Not only will she be celebrating the occasion with her five-year-old daughter Sunday and her own mum Gilly, but it’s her last as a mum-of-one.The reality star is currently expecting her second child, due to arrive this summer. And while she’s clearly excited about her pregnancy, Ferne admits that expanding her family is something she is still getting her head around.
“I’m like, ‘Wow, I’m going to have two children – that’s more responsibility, more moments, more tantrums,’” the 32-year-old explains. “Even speaking about it now, I’m like, ‘Wow, this is actually happening!’ It will all fall into place, but it’s big.” The Essex girl describes being pregnant as “really positive”, adding, “Babies and children coming into the world, they’re such little blessings. I’ve got something to work towards and I’m really excited for that moment when the baby’s here.
It has given me that focus again.” Like most mums, the former TOWIE star has experienced the many ups and downs of raising a child – only in her case, those highs and lows have been documented on her ITVBe show, First Time Mum. Showing the struggles she faced earned her a legion of dedicated fans and the support she received from other mums is what kept her going when she felt alone. “I love receiving those sorts of messages, especially from single parents,” she says.
“It was so tough and I felt so lonely at times. “Sharing that with the viewers of the show has been humbling. You feel connected to these people in some way.” It’s been quite a journey for Ferne, who got engaged to boyfriend Lorri Haines after a romantic proposal last July.The pair met in 2021 after Lorri, 31, slid into her DMs.
