It comes after Montana took to Instagram Stories this week to reveal she was back in the gym for the first time since she fell pregnant, admitting her bump was already fairly prominent despite only just beginning her second trimester. 

In her post, the star also confessed she could be set to have a ‘big baby,’ as she already had quite a large bump despite only just being in her second trimester.

Montana wrote: ‘Gym to get some blood pumped round the bod. I haven’t really gymmed at all since my injury so I’m excited to get back training.

‘Also I feel like I’m quite round for just entering my second trimester… is this a sign I’m going to have a big a*s bb?’

It came after Montana revealed she was ‘so shocked’ to find out she was expecting when she did as she had been trying to conceive at the start of the year but it didn’t happen. 

She took to Instagram to do a Q&A when she told how her and beau Mark struggled to get pregnant due to her low oestrogen levels.

She was then surprised to get pregnant in the later part of the year as they had ‘barely had sex’ due to others factors like her dislocated knee. 

Montana explained on her Story when asked if her pregnancy was planned: ‘Yes this was planned, I didn’t realise for ages that I was pregnant as we were trying earlier on in the year and it wasn’t happening.

‘Then I had loads of tests done and found out I had really low levels of oestrogen and testosterone which I was really surprised at. So I just thought it was going to take us a lot longer.

‘Then I went to Vietnam and did a TV show then I came back and it just happened so it was unexpected but yes it was planned. 

She added: ‘When I first found out I was so shocked I just refused to Mark I said ”I wouldn’t take a test I’m not pregnant,” but he pushed me to do it. 

‘I had a dislocated knee, my body was under stress and we had barely had sex that month whereas before we were properly trying and using ovulation sticks so I thought it was impossible.

‘Unless we can conceive by looking at each other then it just wasn’t likely but I was over the moon – it was such a lovely surprise.

‘We were trying for a little bit but I wish I had done all the tests sooner, as I had low oestrogen so I was put on supplements as it would have been impossible otherwise.’ 

Answering another question from a follower she explained what her first symptoms were: ‘I first realised when I had tummy cramps and was vomiting and I had hot sweats.

‘For the first three weeks that was the drill and I would be up every night having excruciating pain like shooting pain and that’s why I didn’t think I was pregnant as I was in pain – I thought I had appendicitis or a gallstone.’

Mark is a real estate executive, having attended Cardiff University and Henly Business School, according to a pal.

The source said: ‘He played rugby for Chiswick and Wales 1st Teams as a prop, and has a proprietary interest in Forge Gym London. That’s likely how he met Montana.

‘This guy, we’re going to go on a walk, and he was like, “I’m gonna come pick you up”. He lives like quite far from me and where we’re going is not near me either.

‘He’s like, “no I’m gonna pick you up. I’m gonna swing by, pick you up. Do you have any allergies? Because I’m gonna grab some food on the way for our walk”.

‘I was like,” would you like to marry me?!”
