Abi Titmuss has revealed that she is expecting her first child at the age of 41.
The former glamour model and loaded legend announced the news that she is 15 weeks pregnant with fiancé Ari Welkom, and we’re made up for her.
Ari proposed last year during a holiday in Hawaii, and the couple are set to tie the knot in a few weeks time.
It’s great news for Abi, and we wish her the very best. However, it’s got us wondering – just what has she been up to recently?
You’ll all remember the model and presenter burst onto the scene in the early 00s, starring on Celebrity Love Island, and becoming one of the most popular glamour models in the business.
Overwhelmed with joy to share the very special news with you…that I'm PREGNANT! ???❤? Read all about it in this week's @hellomaguk @hellomagus #pregnant #pregnancy #grateful #blessed #privilege #joy #natural #conception #miracle #excited #baby #futuremummy #futuredaddy #family #wedding #fairytale ***************************************************** THANK YOU @hellomaguk @hellomagus for the most beautiful shoot ever.
Abi – who was also a qualified nurse before joining the world of showbiz – appeared on the covers of all the lad mags, including loaded, before leaving the industry for good in the late 00s.
So, what’s she been up to since then? Well, she’s spent most of her time establishing herself as an actress.
In a bid to distance herself from her glamour modelling days, Abi starred in plenty of plays in the late 00s, including production of Shakespeare in the UK.
She also had small parts in shows like hotel Babylon and Casualty, and also earned a reputation for being a hugely talented poker player, gaining sponsorship from Ladbrokes.
However, while we haven’t seen too much of Abi in the UK in recent times, her career has really taken off in the US.
Abi changed her name to Abigail Evelyn in a bid to launch her acting career in Hollywood back in 2015, and it quickly paid off.
Her years training to be a nurse in real life paid off after the actress landed her biggest role to date in Days of Our Lives in the same year.
She made a big impression in the medical drama in the role of Nurse Jackie, and her stint on the show also resulted in her meeting her fiancé Ari Welkom, who starred in three episodes of the show last year.
So, Abi’s career has gone from strength to strength since leaving the world of glamour modelling behind her, and loaded wishes her all the best.
