Casey Batchelor reveals she's pregnant and expecting her third child in three years. Casey, 36, admitted last year that she and businessman fiancé Dane Goodson had been trying for a third child.

But Casey admits the news of her pregnancy came as something of a shock as she had none of the signs she did with their daughters Florence, two, and Sadie, one.

The star explains: "Normally when I get pregnant I know straight away, because I was really sick with the girls and I dry-heaved the whole time throughout both pregnancies. I don’t feel pregnant this time because it’s so different. It’s really weird!”

For many parents, the thought of having three children aged three and under is enough for them to break out in a cold sweat – and Casey is the first to admit the prospect is “crazy”.

She explains: "Florence is three at the end of May and then just a couple of weeks later there will be a newborn, so it will basically be three under three. I know, it’s crazy."

Opening up about her partner Dane's reaction to the news, she adds: "We were just so happy and excited to have another one on the way. We feel really lucky because we have friends who have had children and they’re still trying to have more. We feel very fortunate we get pregnant so quickly and easily. We’re obviously very compatible!"

The former Celebrity Big Brother star is due in mid-June and reveals she's set to find out the sex of the baby on Valentine's Day. After two girls, Casey admits a boy would be lovely but insists they'd be happy either way.

"It would be lovely to have a boy, because we have two girls. But three girls would be amazing because it would a girl gang and Dane would 'be the king of the castle. I said to him, You need to work harder for when we go shoe shopping!'

"I find boys’ names a lot harder than girls’ names. With boys, I feel like there isn’t as much variety and most boys’ names are quite common."

And Casey says she's planning a c-section birth after going through a horrific trauma with her first daughter Florence – suffering pain that was equivalent to a brain tumour.

"It was awful," she says. "They had to give me a rapid birth and break my waters because her heart rate was going up and down.

"I had to have an epidural at 8.5 cm because my body was going into so much shock. I was just having fits and being sick all over myself, because I had no breaks between contractions.

"By the time they gave me an epidural I was past 9 cm because I couldn’t stop moving due to the contractions.

"Because of that they punctured my spine, so I had an epidural drip and I had brain fluid leakage. It was lucky they gave me an epidural because they had to cut me and use forceps."
