She is set to welcome her second child with Dan Osborne in the summer. But Jacqueline Jossa kept her growing baby bump under wraps in a cosy knitted jumper as she took her pet pooch to Crufts at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham on Thursday morning. The ex-EastEnders actress, 25, beamed with delight as she cuddled her fluffy canine companion Rosie at the world’s biggest dog show.
The former soap star tied in her oversized sweater with a pair of black skinny jeans and chic suede boots. Complementing her naturally stunning features, the brunette beauty wore nude-toned bronzer and matching lipstick. The mother-of-one styled her glossy tresses poker straight and accessorised with dainty dangle earrings.
acqueline’s outing comes after she admitted she felt ‘ashamed’ and ‘terrified’ of telling her mother the family’s happy news as she opened up on her pregnancy in a video posted to her Jacqueline’s World YouTube channel last week. The actress said she got into a ‘weird frame of mind’ where she was embarrassed about sharing the development with her relatives. She said: ‘I was terrified, which is weird, I felt exactly the same and thought I am not telling my mum, even though come on it’s pretty obvious now. ‘You just go into a different mode where you’re like, “No I’m not telling anyone, I’m ashamed. What do I do? Oh my god, people are gonna know”.’
Jacqueline went on to share the moment she snapped out of her confused state, adding: ‘It’s what happens when you make a baby, like hello, I’ve already got one, it’s obvious. ‘I just couldn’t, you do go into the sort of frame of mind and it is stupid.’
The award-winning actress shares daughter Ella, three, with her husband Dan Osborne, 26, who she tied the knot with in June 2017 after four years together and a two-year engagement.
Dan also raises son Teddy, four, with ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin. Jacqueline recently left her role as Lauren Branning on BBC’s EastEnders, after a seven-year on and off stint on the show.
Jacqueline kept things cosy and casual in skinny jeans from Primark, which she teamed with a jumper and some platform ankle boots, both of which are from Topshop. She’s a high street kinda gal at heart!
