Rhian recently revealed she is expecting a boy and admits it was ‘always her dream’ to have a son and is due to welcome her baby boy on May 4.

Rhian – who wants a second baby ‘soon’ after spending £150,000 on eight rounds of IVF – said she was ‘over the moon’ at the news and that she and husband of five years, actor Oliver Mellor ( 42), already picked out some potential names.

The star told Closer: ‘It’s always been my dream to have a boy, I don’t know why, but I’ve always imagined having a mini football team.

‘Oliver never said what he wanted but when we found out it was a boy he had the biggest smile on his face. We’ve already decorated the nursery and picked some names – we like Tommy and George so far.’

Rhian also opened up about her difficult journey into motherhood, admitting she suffered from depression, anxiety and an eating disorder while trying to conceive.

She said:I would dread Mother’s Day or when friends shared news about their pregnancies because it didn’t work for me. I got brainwashed.

“Every time I had my period I’d be like, ‘Ugh – I’m not pregnant again’ and feel low for the rest of the month.’

Rhian added that she and Oliver convinced themselves they weren’t going to get pregnant and ‘started planning a good life without children’.

Referring to her husband, actor Oliver Mellor (42), she added: 'Oliver talked to him yesterday on my navel and got kicked in the face!  10 weeks to go!!'

After finally becoming pregnant, she said that their son was “a miracle” and that she wanted another child as soon as possible.

She joked that her pregnancy had caused the couple to get inventive with their sex positions because of her bump and what was not allowed on her back.

Rhian said that while they were ‘still very active in the bedroom’, their sex life was ‘a bit weird’ as Oliver didn’t like the thought of the baby looking inside her belly.

It comes after she revealed that her OnlyFans page funded her £150,000 IVF treatment, and explained that she earns up to £1,000 a day for posting topless or nude photos on the site.

Rhian gained notoriety in 2010 when her ‘texting relationship’ with married Vernon Kay was revealed. Vernon’s marriage to Tess Daly survived the scandal.

The glamor model, who was also linked to the ‘cancelled’ Russell Brand, married Oliver in 2018.

Oliver is best known for portraying Dr Matt Carter in Coronation Street from 2010 to 2013, but has also appeared in EastEnders and

In 2012, Rhian appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, and was the third person to be evicted.
