Frankie said she cried “tears of happiness” when she found out she was expecting twins.

Frankie Essex, who appeared on the reality show The Only Way is Essex, has revealed that she is expecting twins with her partner Luke Love.

Frankie shared a snap from a recent photoshoot announcing her pregnancy with new! Magazine.

In her caption, she wrote: “Roses are red violets are blue we’re not just having one baby we’re having two. Twinnies.

She tagged Luke and wrote: “I love you so much’, and then said that they are “double blessed”.

In her interview, Frankie revealed that she was initially surprised that she got pregnant so quickly after coming off the contraception pill, and then was extra surprised when she found out she was expecting non-identical twins.

“I was just so shocked,” she said.

Frankie then explained the “really lovely” way they found out.

“The lady scanning me was focusing on one baby and was then like, ‘What else do we have here then?’ and I was so shocked and asked, ‘Are we having twins?’ I burst out crying, tears of happiness. It was just so beautiful. It was lovely.”

She continued: “It was such a shock, but it’s a blessing and we are so over the moon. It’s amazing. As soon as we told the family, I asked if twins run on either side and as far as we know, they don’t.”

Frankie then shared the sweet reaction she got from her brother Joey Essex, and revealed that he is “so excited” to become an uncle.

“He just kept smiling all day,” she said. “He checks up on me. He and Luke are really close, which is really nice.”

Frankie doesn’t know the sex of her babies just yet, but has said that as soon as it’s possible, she will find out.

“I would’ve wanted it to be a surprise, but I think I’ve already had the biggest surprise!” she added.
