Former Geordie Shore star Chantelle Connelly has revealed the gender of her first baby during a party dedicated to sharing whether it will be a boy or a girl.
The 28-year-old was full of excitement when she held a pin at the ready to pop a huge golden balloon, that contained the answer to the gender question.
In a video posted to Facebook, the gathered guests counted Chantelle down from ten, before she plunged the pin and showered them with blue confetti.
The Geordie reality TV star was hugged by her partner Lee and it wasn’t long before the name of their unborn son was revealed as welll.
Taking to Twitter, Chantelle wrote: “Little Lee Junior James Blackburn our world.”
The former hell raiser originally announced she was pregnant in September, after a whirlwind romance.
The ex-girlfriend of Jemma Lucy took to Facebook to tells fans the news that she and new boyfriend Lee are set to become parents.
"Over the moon to announce me and Lee are having a baby. Could not be happier," she wrote.
"Can’t wait for my happy little family."
She later confirmed the news on Twitter, replying with a baby bump emoji when a fan asked her, "Food baby?? OR Baby Baby??"
Chantelle, 28, started dating Lee just months ago following her split from scaffolder Clark Crawford.
It’s a happy ending to a tough year for the star, which saw her file for bankruptcy in May.
Official papers stated the 28-year-old isn’t working after quitting the show, and that she asked to be made insolvent.
The documents said bankruptcy was granted on May 10.
Chantelle, who quit the MTV show after one season, told ChronicleLive : "I don’t want to speak about it."
The reality star shot to fame in the hit show’s 12th season but quit amid rows.
Heavily-tattooed Chantelle hit the headlines last year after being convicted of punching a woman in a brawl in Newcastle.
She was fined £3,205 and sentenced to 200 hours of unpaid work after being convicted of GBH.
Newcastle Magistrates’ Court heard she earned cash endorsing products on her Instagram account.
However, her solicitor claimed the fine would have a "catastrophic" impact on her finances after firms dropped her due to the case.
"Prior to these proceedings her income was fairly substantial, it has roughly halved since these proceedings," said John Wesencraft.
