However, it's been far from an easy journey, and while there have been highs – like the gender reveal that confirmed they were having a girl and the elaborate pregnancy announcement – there have also been lows, with her hormones leaving her "crying literally every single day" and feeling down.

Confirming the news on 25 September, Hague has been keeping fans updated with her pregnancy ever since via social media.

In her most recent – a YouTube Q+A about her first two trimesters of pregnancy – the 23-year-old admitted she became highly emotional during the early stages, which left her struggling coming to terms with her impending arrival as a result.

"I had extreme emotions up to seven weeks, so from finding out to about seven or eight weeks, I was so, so, so emotional. I cried literally every single day.

"Emotions were very high and I felt sad a lot – which was very weird because all our dreams had come true," she said.

"I had fallen pregnant, I was so, so happy but I couldn’t feel that happiness yet. Up until eight weeks, I felt quite sad, which I didn’t expect."

She also revealed she had been finding cravings difficult, and said: "The hunger was unlike anything I have ever, ever, experienced.

"I knew that pregnant women 'eat for two' and you experience hunger, but I didn’t realise it was a clinical, medical thing."
