Less than a year after giving birth to her son Finn, Karen Koster announced that she’s pregnant with baby number two – but having them so close together was always what she wanted.

Karen’s already past the five month mark, and the presenter and her hubby John McGuire can’t wait to start growing their little family.

Speaking to The Herald, the Xposé star said, “Having them close together was always kind of the plan. Although, I’m still going, ‘I was just pregnant, how can I be pregnant again?’”

The presenter revealed that she’s a lot more relaxed this time around, as she’s so prepared.

“I’m in the zone, everything is ready to go. All I need is a double buggy and another cot, plus Finn’s a really good baby so I’m hoping the next one follows in his footsteps,” she said.

Despite jumping straight into maternity wear on her last pregnancy, Karen will be holding off as long as possible before switching her wardrobe this year.

She said, “On my first pregnancy I was dying to get into maternity stuff because I was just so excited about being pregnant. I was only six weeks gone and I was in maternity jeans, whereas now I remember how long I was in those for.”

She continued, “Like you’re in them for weeks – even after the baby is born. I’m trying to put that off as long as possible.

“Maternity style is a lot better now, but I’m trying to wear as much of the normal gear as I can so, so I have lots of sweater dresses and lots of stuff that will stretch with me. But don’t get me wrong, I love those stretch jeans!”
