Katie Price is already mother to three children and hosted Michelle Heaton at her Surrey home for several months.

Celebrity Big Brother star Heaton, 31, popped the question so to speak as her baby shower earlier this week.

Meanwhile, it appears Heaton is starting to tire of the ill effects of pregnancy and is counting down the days until she meets her child.

She tweeted recently: “Before u all yell at me… I know it”s all worth it! But… My back ache, sciatica, and emotions running wild, this is not fun anymore!!”

The couple, who wed in August 2010, announced in July they were expecting their first child together in January 2012.
