Billi Mucklow embracing her curves during pregnancy

Billi Mucklow says being pregnant has helped her to embrace her curves.

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star is expecting her and her footballer fiance Andy Carroll's first child and admits that while she struggled to get used to her changing shape at first, she's learnt to enjoy dressing differently.

She said: "My body changed quite early in my pregnancy - your whole body shape changes and it took me a while to adapt to that, but I've enjoyed the experience of dressing my bump. I'm finally embracing my bumps, lumps and curves."

The 27-year-old beauty also claims that although she misses working out as much as she did before she got pregnant, she doesn't want to rush into losing weight once she's given birth.

Billi explained to new! magazine: "I'm going to give myself some time off first before going hard. The way I see it, I've missed this summer now so I'm going to start for next summer. That means I know I've got a full year to get in shape again."
