The former TOWIE star, whose due date is September 27, is set to welcome her first child into the world with boyfriend Danny Flasher, revealing on Monday that she was “still pregnant”.
However, the reality star, 28, has now sparked rumours that her baby has arrived after an onlooker revealed that Chloe’s parents’ pub, The Top Oak in Essex, was adorned with blue foil balloons which were later taken down.
A source told The Mirror: “This morning someone had put blue star and heart balloons all outside Chloe’s parents’ pub – so I think she has given birth to a boy.
“They were tied along the fence on the main road.” The onlooker added: “Later that day all the balloons had been taken down! It made me think because there were balloons there when her sister had a baby boy.”
On Monday, the stunning star updated fans after passing her due date, taking to Instagram to share a story which read: “Update: Still pregnant.”
This came after Chloe praised her boyfriend, dad-to-be Danny Flasher, in a loving Instagram post. Chloe shared a photo of her and her boyfriend smiling while on holiday and wrote in the caption: “Still can’t believe we have made a little human… so grateful for you & everything you have brought to my life. Thought I’d let you know before my new favourite person comes into the world.”
In an exclusive chat with OK! magazine in September, Chloe said she got pregnant on her first try. The star was asked if she was shocked to find out she was pregnant, to which she said: “No, but it was our first try.
“We talked about having babies in December and by mid January I was pregnant. I told Danny on his birthday.”
Speaking about how she found her pregnancy, she added: “I feel healthier pregnant. Even my hair and skin have been better. But for any woman it’s hard mentally, you don’t have the break of going out and having fun and all that anyone ever talks to you about is being pregnant.”
However, Chloe’s first trimester was filled with heartache when she discovered she had miscarried a twin in a condition called vanishing twin syndrome, at eight weeks pregnant.
Speaking about how the traumatic event unfolded, Chloe explained how she started bleeding in the middle of the night and feared the worst. She said: “The next day I booked a scan with a private doctor, and she said: ‘There’s baby number one and baby number two.’ I was shocked.
“But then she said she could only see one of the embryos, so it was either behind the other or I had lost it. I told her about the bleeding and she said that I probably had lost it.“
Chloe had to wait three weeks to find out for sure if she had miscarried, with the star saying she “didn’t know how to feel.”
She explained: “The doctor told me not to get my hopes up, which I didn’t, I expected there to be one baby so I wasn’t totally heartbroken when I went back and was told I had lost one.”
Chloe then received the difficult news she had in fact miscarried one of the identical twins three weeks later.
She added: “The doctor did confirm the twins had been identical. That was so sad for me to hear. I kept thinking this one is going to come out and they would have looked exactly the same. This is common, though; it’s called vanishing twin syndrome.“
Chloe said the hardest part was coping with her mixed emotions. She revealed: “I grieved for about three months. I felt like I had gone into a hole, like I had lost a child. I felt like I had done something wrong because it was my body. Was I going to the gym too much? You start questioning yourself.
“It wasn’t until Danny said: ‘Chloe, you’ve got to snap out of this, you’ve got one healthy baby, not everyone gets this.’
“I was supposed to be happy but I was sad because I’d lost one. I was happy some days and sad others. I couldn’t be totally happy. After three months, though, I said to myself: ‘Right, you’ve got to sort yourself out.’“
