Charlotte Crosby reveals how she kept her pregnancy secret from her friends

Charlotte Crosby shares the clever ways she was capable of hiding her pregnancy from her closest friends.

Geordie Shore’s star, aged 31, shared a touching Instagram video in which she announced her pregnancy with boyfriend Jake Ankers.

In a YouTube video, she also shared her thoughts about her pregnancy. She opened up about how she felt before sharing her feelings with her friends about her pregnancy.

She told her fans that she filmed the video in Dubai’s pool. “It’s four days until I tell Holly [Hagan] and Sophie [Kasaei]. I can’t tell you how hard it has been keeping this from two people who know us better than anyone – and especially Sophie because I’m with her all the time!

“It’s amazing how I did it! She’s guessing a few times and has asked us several times, “You haven’t been out in awhile, are you pregnant?” I was like, “No, I just haven’t fancied it.”

“Sometimes when I’m out with my friends I’ve had to hold their glass of wine in a Boomerang so that Sophie thinks that I am drinking just to try and throw her off the scent.

“When I say that I can’t believe I will tell them, it is because I really cannot wait. It’ll feel like a weight is lifted from my shoulders.”

Friends and fans flocked to congratulate the star, with Scarlett Moffatt gushing: “You are most welcome.”

While TOWIE’s Amber Dowding wrote: “Oh I’m so happy for you! Congratulations.”

Lateysha Grace commented: “Ohhh my god !!!! Charlotte I’m so f**ing happy for you ! I could weep!!”

Another pal wrote: “Ahhhhh. Here we are, my dearest friend. All your dreams have come true. We have been talking for years about this moment. I’m so glad to be there. You are going to be the best mumma and I can’t wait to be there every step of the way (well except from the actual birth because that’s a step too far) I love you sooooo much and so proud of everything you’ve become! This is what you deserve! Congratulations Jake and you!”

The happy news comes six years after Charlotte suffered a devastating ectopic pregnancy, which she admitted that she could have died from.

Charlotte suffered through the ectopic pregnancy – which occurs when a fetus begins to develop outside of the womb – after her split from co-star and on-off boyfriend Gary Beadle.
