Kelly Brook recently revealed she was three months pregnant with boyfriend Thom Evans after meeting him last November.
And the couple have spoken exclusively to HELLO! magazine about why it felt right to start a family together fairly quickly.
Relaxing at Thom's parents' villa in the Algarve, the model and actress, 31, speaks of the surprise pregnancy: "This is what happens when you are in love.
"You surrender to whatever is to be. It wasn't a plan, but if it happened, it happened.
"We were boyfriend and girlfriend."
Thom – a 26-year-old former Scottish rugby union international - adds: "It helped that I was head-over-heels in love with Kelly."
Kelly and Thom's baby is due in September.
