Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt has announced the happy news that she's expecting her first child with her long-term boyfriend.
The reality star, 32, made the announcement on Instagram yesterday (19 February), sharing a video of her baby scan and her beloved pooch with a bandana that read: "I'm going to be a big sister."
She captioned her and boyfriend-of-four-years Scott Dobinson's happy news: "It truly feels like a dream writing this caption.
"Me & Scott are on cloud nine & we are so happy that we get to share this moment with you all. You are so loved already little one.
"Baby Dobinson coming soon."
Needless to say, fans and famous friends alike were quick to flood the 32-year-old with messages of congratulations.
Fellow mum Stacey Solomon gushed: "Aw Congratulations Scarlett," while Giovanna Fletcher added: "Aaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!! Huge congratulations! Xxxxx [sic]"
Steph McGovern wrote: "YES! Congratulations. Honestly being a parent is amazing. So pleased for you both."
Charlotte Dawson simply replied with a series of heart eye emoji while Ferne McCann wrote: "Wow congratulations darling [sic]."
Reacting to the supportive messages with heart emoji, Scarlett added in the comments section: "Wow everybody, honestly me and Scott are overwhelmed with the love. Thank you so so much [sic]."
Scarlett's baby news comes just days after she shared a gushing post about her partner where she described him as her soulmate.
She wrote alongside the Valentine's Day snap: "My Valentine forever and always. Don't know what I would do without you. So happy you came into my life, you make everything better. My soulmate."
The happy couple have been together since 2018, but the former friends, who have known each other for 15 years, didn't make their relationship public until 2019.
While they did split for less than 24 hours in 2021, they appear to have only gone from strength to strength since this minor blip.
Scarlett previously shared her desire to have children with Scott 'one day' that same year.
"One day maybe in a few years. However that may be. Ever since I was a kid I've wanted to adopt as I think every child deserves a loving home," she said.
While the pair have not announced an engagement, Scarlett has also said that she hopes to marry her partner one day too.
She said she'd love for him to get down on one knee around Christmas so that it is like a 'Disney fairytale'.
Scarlett, who said she'd never pop the question herself, told the MailOnline: "I think it's always just in the back of my mind, the Disney Princess version of me thinks, 'Oh, it could be a fairytale,' but I don't think he's given into the peer pressure."
