“My beautiful stunning Samantha inside and out have an amazing night,” her mum Suzie Wells also sent her praise.
“@samanthafaiers you look gorgeous, glowing already beautiful mama,” a fan said, while another wrote: “You look absolutely stunning, you’ve got that pregnancy glow.”
Sam was joined at ITV’s Palooza! bash by boyfriend Paul Knightley, who was photographed in a dark blue blazer and trousers and a light blue shirt as he held a hand over his partner’s baby bump on arrival.
Reality stars Sam and Paul look loved up as she posed for photos on the red carpet and are clearly on cloud nine over their baby news.
This is the couple’s first public appearance since they revealed on Instagram earlier in the day that they were expecting baby number three.
The pair – who have been together since 2014 – are already parents to Paul Jr, 5, and daughter Rosie, 4, and look excited to be expanding their brood even more.
Posting a black and white photo of the family altogether staring at Sam’s growing tummy, both Sam and Paul shared their happiness at revealing their big news.
“Soon to be a family of 5. We have a spring baby on the way. We’re so happy and feeling blessed,” they both captioned on their individual Instagram pages, before adding: “PS keeping this little one a surprise.”
