Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson, 27, has candidly opened up about her pregnancy insecurities as she prepares to welcome her first child in around seven weeks time.
The reality star, who is expecting her first child with singer boyfriend Casey Johnson, 24, has revealed she’s “constantly feeling stressed” to her fans in an honest Instagram story.
Updating her 3.5million followers, Marnie posted an image of her rose pattern bedroom wallpaper and wrote: “Almost 33 weeks and have to say I’m really struggling now, constantly feeling stressed and hormonal.”
She then added: “All this extra weight is really affecting my ankles, the heartburn is legit nothing like I’ve ever experienced.
“I can’t wait until my little boy is in my arms I feel this last but is dragging.”
After making the honest confession on her Instagram story, Marnie later posted a throwback photo of herself posing in underwear while six months pregnant and admitted she’s finding it “extremely difficult” to “feel sexy”. She told her followers in the caption: “Trying to look and feel sexy right now is extremely difficult, so here is a picture of me and baby boy at 6 months.
“Can’t actually believe I though my bump was big here. [sic]
“It’s quadrupled In size since then,” she said and added a laughing face emoji to finish her caption.
The stunning pregnancy photo received more than 18,000 likes in less than half an hour as fans flooded the comments to compliment her, calling the reality star “sexy” and “beautiful”.
This isn’t the first time Marnie has got honest about her pregnancy hang ups. Earlier in August, Marnie confessed she found the changes to her body “challenging” in an honest post to fans.
Sharing a photo of herself cradling her bump while wearing a black, floral maxi dress, Marnie explained: “Watching my body change has been challenging to say the least not going to lie, I’ve started to develop some stretch marks and water retention leaving me with a hell more cellulite than usual, which is daunting but I know it’s going to be so worth it regardless when I see my baby Boy.
“No pregnancy is perfect, I’ve felt insecure, tired, hormonal and over all crap, social media only sees the ups never the downs!”
The reality star has also spoken about feeling upset after discovering “new stretch marks” during her pregnancy.
“I was just getting really upset because I have got a few stretch marks which are new, and then Casey decides to tell me McDonalds have dropped a new nugget,” she said. “It’s not really the best thing to tell us when I’m feeling like this.”
But, Marnie has previously said she’s determined to “feel sexy” while pregnant. Sharing another snap of herself posing in a blonde wig, the Geordie Shore star said: “Just because I’m pregnant doesn’t mean I can’t be sexy.”
Marine and Casey announced they were expecting their first child together in an exclusive interview with OK! magazine in April 2019.
But, the pregnant reality star, who is due to give birth to her son on 16 October 2019, revealed she feared she wasn’t able to have children.
Marine told OK! magazine at the time: “Because I’d done Geordie Shore I’d convinced myself that I couldn’t have kids because of all the alcohol abuse.”
But, after discovering the couple were expecting their first child together, Casey said the couple were “excited” to welcome a child into the world. The Stereo Kicks member, who rose to fame on The X Factor in 2014, said: “I don’t think you’re ever ready until it happens, but we’re so excited. It feels amazing.”
And Marnie confessed she felt “scared” about giving birth and added: “I’m really nervous. I can’t even talk about it. “I’ll make sure I’ve got some lip gloss and eyeliner. I don’t want to be a mess!”
Marine and Casey have been dating since meeting on MTV Single AF in 2017.
The couple live together in a stunning five-bedroom house in Bedfordshire. Their gorgeous pad includes a dressing room, a large kitchen and impressive living room. Marine transformed the home to make it her own after she bought the pad in 2018.
The couple held a gender reveal party to find out the sex of their tot in May this year.
With their closest celebrity friends and family watching, the couple let off a celebration cannon, which let out blue confetti to reveal they were having a baby boy.
Speaking about the event, Marnie said in her baby blog with OK! online: “Honestly, it was such an amazing night.
I was so overwhelmed by how many people turned up to it and it was just magical.”
