Is Celebs Go Dating agent Anna Williamson pregnant, will she be taking time off from the show and is she friends with Nadia Essex?
ANNA Williamson quickly became one of the nation's biggest TV personalities by starring in E4's Celebs Go Dating.
The journalist and TV host turned life coach has returned to our screens as a love guru with Paul Carrick Brunson. But what do we know about her and is she expecting a baby?
Is Anna Williamson pregnant?
Since the series kicked off on Monday, eagle-eyed viewers thought they spotted a baby bump on Anna.
And it's true – Anna Williamson is expecting her second child with husband Alex Di Pasquale.
The 38-year-old broke the news via Instagram with an endearing family snap from OK! last month.
She wrote: "Ok, so some of you have spotted my slightly fuller figure of late – I haven’t just been eating all the pies (but I have certainly consumed a fair few with cravings).
Well, there’s a reason…my lovely husband and I, and Vincenzo, are expecting our 2nd baby later in the year. We are absolutely overjoyed."
The star endured "severe peri and post-natal anxiety" when she was expecting her first child.
She explained on the post that she has spent the last few months making sure she is going through a "healthy" pregnancy.
The E4 star added: "It's been an important couple of months making sure this pregnancy is healthy, that baby is well (it is) and that crucially my mental health is in good order."
She also thanked her bosses at E4 for their support.
Anna and Alex have one child together called Vincenzo George.
She gave birth to Enzo – her "honeymoon baby" – in 2016.
Is Anna Williamson married?
The TV presenter is married to fitness guru Alex Di Pasquale.
Anna and Alex tied the knot in October 2015 in a romantic ceremony at a village church in Hertfordshire.
The couple then welcomed their son Vincenzo George into the world on September 27, 2016.
When did she get the job on Celebs Go Dating?
Nadia Essex had originally been a dating agent before she was suspended from season 5 of Celebs Go Dating.
A spokeswoman for Celebs Go Dating admitted: "Nadia has been suspended following improper use of social media."
Her former co-star Eden Blackman, who quit just months earlier, had claimed that he was the victim of her trolling, telling The Sun that Nadia created at least two social media accounts to target him online.
This led to Anna Williamson stepping in to the role and speaking in 2018, she said: “I am so excited to be joining Paul and Tom in the Celebrity Dating Agency. I’ve been a big fan of the show since it launched.
"Celebrities are known for not being backwards in coming forwards in their work life, however being unlucky in love seems to be the common theme amongst many of the celebrities I've met throughout my career.
"I’m looking forward to taking them under my wing, dishing out some tough love where needed, and making changes to help them bag the date of their dreams – and this time, keep hold of them!"
Is she friends with Nadia Essex?
Anna has previously revealed to Digital Spy that she was nervous about taking over from Nadia.
She said: "Of course, I'm human. Nadia is and was terrific. I was a huge fan of the show before and I was an enormous fan of Nadia, as I was of Eden as well.
It can feel a bit bitter sweet to get the job or be the new person in a role that I really liked as a viewer.
I just hope [the viewers] will come on board and see that I am going to do things slightly differently. I am going to do things Anna's way. I'm all about moving forward, not back."
She continued: "Nadia is her own person, I am my own person. I really respect her. I don't think you can recreate or be someone you're not.
"I think Nadia's expressions and her wit and some of her cutting quips were absolutely hilarious. I have my own way and I hope people will embrace that."
While the pair might be civil, Nadia previously had a turbulent relationship with the show's other love guru Eden Blackman.
Nadia and Eden no longer speak at all, with Nadia saying: “I haven't spoken to him. I think a lot of people did think it was an April Fools joke."
What other TV shows has she been on?
Before Celebs Go Dating, Anna has appeared as an expert on shows including This Morning, Good Morning Britain, Inside Out and Single AF.
She was also a familiar face on Nickelodeon, and appeared as a contestant on Celebrity Egg Heads in 2018.
The presenter was born July 23, 1981. This makes her 38 years old.
She is also a journalist, a life coach and an accredited counsellor.
