‘I was so excited to share the news, but also really nervous because I was very honest in the interview.

‘I am one of those people who strive for perfection and maybe this is not the fairy tale I imagined in these circumstances and I was nervous about sharing that with the world.’

The star, who began to break down in tears, continued: ‘I was nervous about sharing that with the world. Sorry…I’m hormonal.’  

She added: ‘I am so grateful for the messages from around the world. I was so nervous it would be perceived badly.

‘I don’t know why, I just worry, worry, worry. But everyone has been amazing. I’ve had DMs from other women – the power of the sisterhood, women in similar circumstances – it’s so inspirational, uplifting.

‘I cannot wait for the rest of my pregnancy and to share this journey with you.’ 

Lydia, who recently split from the father of her baby Lee following an on-off two year romance, broke the news of her pregnancy during an interview with Hello! Magazine earlier this month.  

She told Hello! ‘It’s been so hard keeping this a secret. It just feels like the right time for it all to happen for me.’

‘It’s not the ideal situation. I waited quite a long time to try for a baby, waited until I thought it was perfect. I’ve always wanted the fairytale.’

Lydia, who said she planned to find out the baby’s sex, also admitted that she was not ‘closing the door’ on her relationship with Lee completely.

She added: ‘I feel like I just keep getting knocked back. I can’t beg somebody to be with me, and I can’t beg somebody to love me.’     

In January, Lydia, who first crossed paths with Lee at an nightclub in Ibiza, took to Instagram to announce she and Lee had separated.  

Announcing their shock break-up, she said: ‘Sometimes relationships don’t work out but having time away to reflect on how lucky I am in my life, what I have achieved and who I have around me fills my heart with so much love.’

However just three months later the pair rekindled their romance and decided to give their romance a second chance before once again splitting up.
