It turns out that our guesses were right that second-time mom-to-be Rochelle Humes is in her second trimester. The British girl band member who also starred in a one-season E! TV reality TV show, Chasing the Saturdays, told the audience during a taping of the ITV show Loose Women that she was “surprised” her friends kept her pregnancy a secret.
Her husband, Marvin Humes, a former boy band member of the British group JLS and currently a Capital FM DJ said last week that she was close to six months pregnant
They would have waited longer but a TV gig thwarted that plan.
She had to go public with her news because she and Marvin were part of the hosting team for BBC charity telethon ‘Children In Need’ , the Daily Mirror reports, and her stylist told her that she wouldn’t be able to hide her bump on television.
“It’s amazing, [Rochelle] is doing so well and she’s a real trooper. She’s nearly six months – she’s only a week away from being six months,” Marvin told Daily Mail, Marvin. “She looks great and we’re so lucky we’re having a second child,” Marvin added. “We’re really, really excited.”
The couple are parents to 3-year old daughter Alaia-Mai and said they will not find out the baby’s sex until it is born.
“We thought it would be nice to keep it a surprise,” Marvin revealed. “We’re going to wait and see.”
Rochelle, who is a TV host of the British show The Next Great Magician almost found out the news when a psychic to the stars, including to Kim Kardashian West, wrote down the baby’s gender on a card and placed it in an envelope. The host of the show offered to reveal it but Rochelle passed because she suspected the psychic would be right.
Certainly, that would ruin the whole ‘wait and see’ thing for sure.
