Luisa Zissman is expecting baby girl

Luisa Zissman is expecting a baby girl.

The former 'Apprentice' runner-up - who already has five-year-old daughter Dixie from her first marriage to Oliver Zissman - is "thrilled" she and her partner Andrew are set to welcome a daughter into the world later this summer.

She said: "My dream is to have four daughters who are all really into horse riding, like me. I'm not sure I'd know what to do with a boy! I really did want another little princess so at ten weeks we paid to have a blood test done, which told us the sex. I liked the idea of knowing so I could mentally prepare."

But, although she's thrilled she's expecting her second child, her pregnancy hasn't been easy as she's been forced to give up horse riding due to suffering with hyper-mobility.

She explained to OK! magazine: "I haven't had any sickness but I've got hyper-mobility, which means I've been in quite a lot of pain, especially in my pelvis. It also means that I can't exercise, which I've found to be hard because I was really fit before. It's been a big lifestyle adjustment.

"I've been doing yoga with a lady who comes to my house. She keeps suggesting I come to one of her classes and meet other pregnant women, but I'm a bit of a hermit.

"I carried on riding until I was six months along, but I was in agony. Every time I got off the horse I'd have to have a massage straight away. If I had my way, I would have kept riding throughout my pregnancy."

Meanwhile, Luisa began dating Andrew in October 2013 and, just a year later, they got engaged in October 2014.

They sparked rumours they had got married in France last July when Luisa posted a photograph of a bride walking down the aisle, but she's only just confirmed the reports.
