Katie Piper is expecting her second child with husband Richard Sutton.

The 33-year-old star, who is already mother to three-year-old daughter Belle with Richard, announced the news on Father's Day on Sunday (18Jun17).

Sharing a screenshot of some official pictures taken for Hello magazine of her cradling her bump, Katie wrote: "I'm so excited to tell you all next Father's Day my husband will be celebrating with two children!!"

The happy news came after she had earlier paid tribute to Richard on the familial holiday by sharing a picture of him holding daughter Belle just moments after she was born.

"Happy Father's Day to the man who is an incredible father to my daughter- a true role model of how wonderful a man can be #fatherdays," she wrote next to the picture.

Katie has become an inspiration to millions after turning her life around following an horrific acid attack in 2008, when her ex-boyfriend Daniel Lynch threw acid in her face, leading to the former model having to undergo more than 300 surgical procedures.

She has since set up her charity The Katie Piper Foundation and written several books including Confidence: The Secret, and Together: Everything I've Learned About Relationships, due for release in 2018.

As well as her career, Katie is also kept busy with daughter Belle, who she previously revealed was desperate to have a sibling.

"I'm totally open to it (more children), if we're lucky enough for it to happen. I think it's a bit of a stop gap at the moment to give her a companion," she said during an interview with MailOnline in May. "We know what it's like to grow up with siblings, we would like that as well for her eventually. I know one was a blessing though, if I only ever had one I would still be happy."

The pregnancy news also comes after Katie revealed she was unsure whether she would be able to fall pregnant naturally again, due to a problem with her oesophagus that meant she didn't have enough vitamins to help her make a baby.
