“1- Daddy + Princess 1 2- Mummy + Princess 2. I won’t be very active on here for a little while as I’m enjoying my baby bubble and recovering,” she said. [sic]

The TV personality announced she was expecting her second child with fiancé Dane Goodson in July 2019, just 14 months after giving birth to her daughter Florence in May 2018.

Speaking to Closer magazine at the time, she admitted she was "surprised" that she got pregnant so quickly after the birth of her first daughter.

She said: “I’m going to have two babies 20 months apart… I can’t quite believe it!

“It’ll be tough, but I’m going to ride the storm – we’re just so thrilled we’re having another baby!”

During a candid chat with OK! online late last year, Casey revealed the horrific details of her labour with her first daughter Florence, including being bed-bound for weeks after puncturing her spine.

Speaking exclusively to OK! online in December, she said: “The last one I wanted a water birth and I wanted it all natural, just gas and air and that but, it really didn’t go to plan.

“Her [Florence’s] heart rate was being sporadic so they had to induce me and give me a quick labour and then they had to give me an epidural but at 9.5cm.”

Casey revealed the ordeal didn’t stop there as the epidural caused a puncture in her spine. She said: “They punctured my spine so I had brain fluid leakage I had the epidural drip. I had a lot going wrong.”

She then added: “They had to cut me and use forceps so it didn’t go to plan at all.”

Casey was then discharged from hospital earlier than she should have and was then called back.

“I had to go back to hospital because I was so poorly for weeks.

“I couldn’t stand up straight because every time I stood, the brain fluid would go down my spine and try and clot the hole that they’ve made, which is called the epidural drip.

“It’s like having a clamp on your brain and you’re in so much pain.”

However, the reality star revealed her yoga Pregnancy & Postnatal Bliss Programme helped her prepare for labour the second time around.

When asked if yoga helped with labour, she told us: “Definitely, you know with keeping strength and stamina up, it definitely helps for labour.

“They actually say women that are fitter have shorter labours so, we’ll see how this labour goes because my last labour was horrendous and I wasn’t fit in my last pregnancy.”
