The mother-to-be, 40, covered her blossoming bump in a dark brown and cream shearling jacket while on her walk in London.

One of the dogs had on a coat to keep its fur dry while the other looked stylish in an adorable blue onesie.
The Virgin Radio presenter transported her Instagram followers back to the early stages of her pregnancy journey over the weekend, when she shared video of relatives reacting to the news that she’s expecting her first child.
In the clip, the mother-to-be is seen surprising her parents, twin sister, and Martin’s mother with the news when she was three months’ pregnant.
She is first seen dining al fresco with her parents as she shows what appears to be a baby scan to them. While her mother looks shocked and emotional – before asking if it’s a joke – her dad quips: ‘Well, good luck to ya!’

After learning of the news, Martin’s mother is seen leaping from her couch to hug Kate and her son as the broadcaster asks if she’s happy – which the grandmother-to-be enthusiastically confirms.
Meanwhile, she is seen telling her twin sister as she spends time in the sunshine with her family, prompting the sibling to break down in tears once the shock had settled.
Captioning the heartwarming clip, Kate wrote: ‘Telling family our news… I’m feeling 37.5 weeks pregnant and on maternity leave!
‘Today I found these super cute videos where we surprised my parents, Boj’s Mum and my Twin Sister with the news that I was 3 months pregnant.

Note how everyone asks if we’re on the wind up… I guess because none of them ever believed I’d change my mind about wanting children. I think my favourite line is from my Dad Big Dezzie, you’ll know which one when he says it. #tbt #pregnancyjourney’
Last week, Kate revealed that she’s ’embracing’ all of the changes she’s going through, including the weight gain and having ‘nipples like cigarette butts’.
Speaking on her Maybe Baby podcast with her beau and guest Giovanna Fletcher, the Big Brother winner admitted she’s found the entire process fascinating.
She said: ‘I’ve really embraced the changes in my body. It’s the biggest I’ve been and I love it. I even love my massive areolas and the fact my nipples look like cigarette butts, I do love it.’

During her chat with the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star, Kate went on to share her delight in seeing more women not feeling the pressure to rush back to the gym after giving birth.
‘I think we’ve progressed in terms of how women behave on social media behave after their pregnancy. I see more and more women celebrate their bodies, not looking as they were, even six months after having their baby.’
Elsewhere, Kate admitted to being adamant about never wanting children, until she turned 40 and realised Martin was the one she wanted to have a baby with.
When asked by mother-of-three Giovanna what led to her decision to get pregnant, Kate, which is due to give birth this month, joked: ‘My salesman boyfriend. Being with someone for so long and still feeling content and happy.
Exciting news: Martin’s mother is seen relaxing on her couch as she learns of the exciting news of the new arrival
‘I kept saying to [Martin], “You would be the person I want kids with but I just don’t want them”, and then it got to, “Well, let’s do a podcast and find out what it’s really like”.
“When I turned 40 last May, it it was almost like overnight I felt like I was ready finally.
‘We went to a fertility clinic and she told me my egg count was very low and having that [knowledge], it’s so final because at some point in our lives, we can’t debate it anymore.’
The podcast served to be the final episode of the season for Kate and Martin, who revealed that they have been quietly documenting their journey for a TV show.
