Announcing a pregnancy, celeb mums are often lavished with luxury presents from their nearest and dearest to celebrate the imminent arrival.
Not so for down-to-earth Fearne Cotton, whose father’s choice of pregnancy gift was a suitably low-key affair – if not a tad bizarre.
Returning to Radio 1 after a week off, Fearne and her team tweeted a picture of an enormous maternity bra with the caption, “Fearne’s dad bought her something very weird from a car boot sale yesterday – not funny Dad!”
Having recently confirmed she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jesse Wood, son of Rolling Stone Ronnie, Fearne has revealed her joy at her “pregnant booby situation”, saying, “I’ve actually got them for the first time in 30 years. It’s unreal it’s wonderful.”
Perhaps it was this revelation that led her thrifty dad to pick up the bargain? Or perhaps Fearne’s self-confessed pregnancy hormones are simply causing her to make mountains out of molehills!
