Binky Felstead reveals her mum was the one to tell JP she was pregnant

by Gemma Strong

Binky Felstead has admitted that it was her mum Jane who broke the news that she was pregnant to on-off boyfriend Josh 'JP' Patterson. The couple opened up to HELLO! about the moment Binky, 26, discovered she was expecting her first baby, with Jane revealing she was with Binky when she took the pregnancy test, and immediately sent a message to JP, who was filming a scene for Made in Chelsea at the time.

"I was at her house within ten minutes and we just hugged," JP said. "No matter what our differences were, the most important thing for me that day was her, because I knew however I was feeling she was probably feeling it ten times worse. Irrelevant of what had gone on in the past, or what had been said, it all went out of the window."
