“I don’t think I can get over how big this bump is getting. I wake up every day feeling truly grateful and so blessed. Just want to meet our little [grape emoji] now.”

And another said: “Fabulous, and you look great too. Hope all goes well for you to the end”

Alexandra revealed that she and goalkeeper Darren were having a baby last month with an Instagram video showing off her baby bump.

She captioned the video “Due June 2022.”
