Friends and famous faces have flooded former Made In Chelsea star Nicola Hughes’ Instagram page with congratulations after the Irish model revealed she is pregnant.

Just five months after marrying husband Charlie Tupper, the 32-year-old announced the news in a sweet Instagram post on Monday evening, simply writing “hi baby”.

The Irish star delighted her fans when she posted a photo of her lying in a bikini as Charlie lies behind her with a supportive arm around her stomach.

Charlie reposted his wife's snap to his Story - adding a smiley emoji.

Some of her former Made In Chelsea cast-mates offered their congratulations with Lucy Watson writing: “Best news ever”, while Emily Blackwell added: “Awwwww unreal. congratulations my lovely.”

Model Imogen Thomas, and Geordie Shore favourite Vicky Pattison also offered their congratulations, as did Holy Carpenter, RTE’s Rob Kenny and Aoife Walsh.

Nicola, who has been with Charlie for five years, got married in a lavish Surrey ceremony in December in Botleys Mansion where Lottie Moss and bridesmaids Tiffany and Lucy Watson joined more than 100 other guests.

Nicola revealed how wedding plans had to be rejigged due to Covid-19 restrictions, with the ceremony being planned in a mere six weeks.

The pair had been planning to tie the knot in France, but due to complications caused by the pandemic they moved the ceremony to the UK.

“We wanted a three-day wedding abroad, near a vineyard, but the way it turned out it was so nice and I think it was meant to be.

"We had the best day, we were so happy,” Nicola told OK! Magazine.

The model recalled how she "burst into tears", when she saw her husband-to-be standing at the altar.

She was walked down the aisle by her dad Des, and to Christina Perri's A Thousand Years being played on the piano.

Speaking after the wedding, Nicola talked about the pair's future: “We’re just really excited to plan our honeymoon and see where we can go, and then we’re going to buy a house and hopefully start a family one day."

Discussing their desire to have children and start a family, Nicola said she would love to have at least two kids.

Nicola joined the E4 show's ninth series in 2015, as the girlfriend of Alex Mytton. The pair had reportedly met in 2014 while he was DJ-ing at a hotel.

She left the show in 2016, after the relationship broke down.

She has also appeared on Irish reality show Exiles: Vancouver, about six young people emigrating to Canada.

Among other brands, Nicola has modelled for Hollister and Paul Costello.
