‘We would have been happy either way, of course, and I just want her to grow up knowing that she can be exactly who she wants to be. I want her to know that the things she goes to bed dreaming about can come true.’

The star then also took to Instagram to share heartwarming images of the moment she and Stuart learned they were having a daughter.

‘For months our families have been predicting and guessing the gender of the baby, but it was so nice to just have that between us.

‘Our deadline is really coming up now, we can’t believe how close it is, so last weekend felt like the right time to get everyone together and reveal it. It was such a special day and one we will always remember. So… we have a…’

The Radio 1 presenter recently admitted that having a baby was something she ‘wanted to have for a long time’.

The presenter also revealed that she and Stuart have made the decision to postpone their wedding so that their baby can be involved in the wedding, which they feel will be ‘really special’.

Speaking in an interview with Fabulous magazine in October, Mollie said: ‘It’s something we’ve wanted for a very long time.

‘I wouldn’t say I’ve always been boisterous, but I’ve always wanted a family. It was about the right person and the right time.

‘I have five nephews and I absolutely love taking care of them, that’s what made me feel like this is what I want. We feel incredibly lucky. I know Stuart is going to be such a good dad – he is so excited.’

Mollie said she and Stuart, who got engaged in January 2021, are ‘juggling a lot’ and trying to move house, so have taken a step back from wedding planning for the time being.

She explained: ‘I’ve always dreamed of my wedding day. But with all this happening, it’s: ‘Right, we’ll do that, but later’.

‘We are juggling a lot at the moment. We are also trying to move. It would be nice to have the baby there too. That would be special.’

The former pop star also opened up about her pregnancy cravings, explaining that while she’s usually ‘very healthy’ with her diet, she wanted ‘pizza, garlic bread and jacket potatoes’.

Although the mum-to-be initially experienced morning sickness and pregnancy anxiety, she said she felt ‘pretty normal’ but ‘definitely more tired’ as her due date approached.

Mollie explained that she has been embracing her changing shape over the past few months, enjoying watching her figure transform from ‘tomboyish and athletic’ to curvaceous as the weeks of her pregnancy progressed.

The TV and radio presenter said she was in ‘nesting’ mode as she looked forward to her bundle of joy’s arrival, happily turning the spare bedroom in the couple’s London flat into a nursery for her baby.

Stuart ruled himself out of the England cricket team’s Test Match series this winter to spend time with Mollie and the couple’s baby.

Mollie and Stuart first met through mutual friends in 2012, but didn’t get together until March 2018.

The couple split briefly five months later, but were spotted together again in February 2019, and confirmed they had reunited the following month.
