Olivia Bowen says she broke down in tears in front of husband Alex over the weight she gained during pregnancy.
The former Love Island star, 28, is expecting her first child with Brummie Adonis, 30, in the summer.
The mom-to-be has opened up about her journey so far, revealing that she’s been “really happy” and “blessed” as it’s been quiet and she’s “still able to do most things.”
However, Olivia also admitted that she struggled with other aspects of her pregnancy, including how her body is changing from day to day.
Speaking to Closer Magazine, she said: “Earlier this week I had a shake because I feel like I’ve completely lost myself.
“I broke down and cried to Alex and said, ‘I don’t know who I am right now!’
“It’s so stupid to worry – you’re supposed to gain weight, you’ve only been doing this for nine months and much worse things are happening – but you get in your head and there’s a lot of hormones going around!”
The Essex beauty has previously opened up about being pregnant.
Speaking to New! She explained, “We actually only tried it for a couple of months.
“So we’re so, so grateful and so, so lucky to be able to conceive so soon.”
Olivia added: “We keep the sex secret. We just feel like there aren’t many real surprises in life, so saving that until the last minute is going to be really exciting.”
The reality star admitted she “always knew” she wanted to be a mom and said it felt like a natural “next step” for her and Alex.
While the couple plans to share the next phase of their lives with their fans when they become parents, they have yet to decide if their baby will be raised in the public eye.
Olivia said she and Alex would make the decision once the baby arrives depending on “how they feel”.
The couple, who have been together since meeting on Love Island in 2016, recently went to Tenerife on babymoon.
She wowed fans as she shared plenty of snaps during her trip showing off her growing baby bump.
