Marnie Simpson and Casey Johnson exclusively reveal their second pregnancy and open up about why this will probably be their last baby Before this time Marnie Simpson told new magazine of her expedients to add to her and fiancé Casey Johnson’s posterity. And now the couple could n’t be more agitated to advertise that they do indeed have another little bone on the way! The Geordie Shore star is 13 weeks pregnant with a stock for the couple’s two- time-old son Rox, who Marnie says is now completely rooted in the “ terrible twos”.

But while the 29- time-old admits she felt like a “ shaft of sun” during her first gestation, effects have been a little different this time around. “ I ’ve been sick out of the auto window three or four times!” laughs Marnie, who’s due on 27 May. “ This time I authentically feel like the walking dead.”

But still, it’s lovely news for the couple, who both stars on MTV reality show Geordie OGs, as Marnie has previously spoken of her worry about carrying a child again because she suffers from a chronic bladder condition that got much worse following Rox’s birth.

But with Marnie now in a much better place with her health ( piecemeal from the morning sickness!), and the couple back on track following a brief split in January, plus a new house in the blend, it seems baby number two couldn’t have come at a better time.

Here, Marnie and former Union J singer Casey, 26, who got engaged in August 2020,

Congrats, guys! How does it feel to have baby number two on the way?

Marnie: We’re so agitated and super happy. It was a bit of a shock but we’re just so thrilled!
Casey: I’m agitated. You’re always going to be a little bit spooked, too.

Marnie: But I do suppose it’s different this time because we know what’s coming! The first time you authentically suppose it’s going to be so easy and you’re not going to need any help. Now we know we’ve got the insomniac nights and a toddler to look after as well. I suppose it’s going to be hard but we’re going to try to enjoy it indeed when there are hard moments because, when the babies are over five, we’ll miss them being so small. We want to cherish it.

You said it was a shock when you plant out – so you weren’t trying also?

Marnie: I was rephotographing a Television show in September and we planned on trying after that. But during filming, I had really weird symptoms. I constantly felt sick, my epoxies were bleeding and I felt dizzy, but I just put it down to it being an exertion- grounded show and the fact it was 17-hour days.

Are you going to find out what you’re having?

Marnie: We don’t know what to do. I think this is going to be my last pregnancy – I’m 99.9% sure – and I’m never going to get the chance of that surprise again. But I don’t know if Casey can wait!

Casey: I’m too excited!

Marnie: I haven’t even had my first scan yet. That’s this week.

That’s exciting! Would you like a little girl?

Marnie: I would love a little girl. I think it would be super cute to dress her in pink tutus, but then there are plus points to having a boy as well as I think it will be really good for Rox. As long as they’re healthy, I’m happy either way.

Casey: I would like a little girl. It would be nice to have one of each, but we’d be happy if it’s a boy. As long as they’re healthy, that’s what matters.

Marnie: Everyone thinks I’m having another boy. Everyone just looks at me and says, “Boy”. A psychic messaged me on Instagram months ago and said you’re going to be pregnant soon and you’re going to have a boy.

And when I was having a facial I think the lady also did readings on the side. She said, “Are you pregnant?” and I said, “No.” She said there was a pregnancy aura around me and I was going to get pregnant soon. This was three or four months ago! But she said I was going to have a girl. I don’t know how I feel about psychics.

Do you have a birth plan?

Marnie: No. But I had a terrible birth last time so I’m a high-risk pregnancy and I’m going to be consultant led instead of midwife led this time. With Rox I was septic, I lost loads of blood and I caught an infection and they didn’t even know where it was from. This time I will have whatever birth is safest for us. I’d be open to a C-section.

What do you think Rox will be like as a big brother?

Marnie: It could go one way or the other! He could either be really jealous or really nurturing. He’s too young to understand but he’s clingy at the moment so I think he may suspect something. He has a bit of a temper and the terrible twos have definitely hit us, but we’re having so much fun with him. He’s coming on so well.

Bless him! Have you told your Geordie Shore co-stars your good news?

Marnie: Yes, they’re so excited for us! I still can’t believe I’m the only one of the girls with children. I keep asking them about it so I think I’m annoying them! [Laughs.] I just want them to hurry up and have kids because I want them to do things together. I was holding out for Holly [Hagan] but I think it will be out of Chloe [Ferry], Charlotte [Crosby] or Sophie [Kasaei] next.
