Denise Van Outen: 'I'm looking forward to being fat'

Monday November 16, 2009

Actress and TV presenter Denise Van Outen isn't using pregnancy as an excuse to put her feet up.

The glam blonde joined fellow celebs in manning a stall at a London jumble sale event for charity Mothers4Children at the weekend, where she shared her joy about expecting her first baby.

"It's like I've been waiting my whole life to be pregnant," said the 35-year-old, who wed Any Dream Will Do winner Lee Mead in April.

"I'm doing and checking all the things that I've always thought are necessary. For instance, I sit down a lot on the assumption my ankles are swollen, but they're not," explained Denise, who last week announced she is 14 weeks pregnant.

"I'm over feeding myself all the most sugary items from the cupboard, despite not yet having any cravings for them."

"I'm extremely excited about the months ahead and I'm looking forward – for the first time in my life – to looking fat for a reason," she told the Daily Mail.
