After weeks of speculation, Radio 1 DJ and TV presenter Fearne Cotton has (finally) confirmed that she is expecting her 2nd child with boyfriend Jesse Wood.


Posting on her official website, Fearne said, "Jesse and I are very happy to announce we are having another baby. I feel extremely blessed and happy that Rex will be a big brother, and we get to welcome another Wood into the world."

Aw, bless their cotton socks.

Rumours of the Radio 1 DJ’s pregnancy were initially sparked at the National TV Awards back in January after Celebrity Juice host Keith Lemon seemed to let the news slip.

He said his co-hosts Fearne and Holly Willoughby were unable to join him at the ceremony as "one is allegedly pregnant".

Lemon later 'clarified' things by saying, '‘If anyone was pregnant, it would be Holly; she’s a baby-making machine.’

As well as announcing her pregnancy – properly, this time – Fearne, 33, also revealed that she’ll be leaving Radio 1 after 10 years at the station.

"It has also been a time of big decisions and one I want to share with you now. After much time and careful thought, I have decided to leave Radio 1 after 10 amazing years.

"I have had the most incredible decade broadcasting on Radio 1, meeting wonderful people, helping break artists and watching live music from the world’s best.

"However it is now time for a new chapter… Here’s to family and new adventures!"

We hear you loud and clear, Fearne. Congrats and good luck!
