Billie Shepherd says it’s ‘impossible to rest’ as she preps for baby three

Billie Shepherd has confessed it is “impossible to rest” as she prepares to welcome her third child with her husband Greg.

The pregnant star has had incredibly busy few months which has included moving house, filming her ITVBe reality show The Family Diaries and juggling her work projects.

And with all this going on and two children – Nelly, eight, Arthur, five – to look after, the 32 year old exclusively tells OK! she is struggling to put her feet up and nest before her third little one arrives.

“The last couple of months have been a whirlwind with the move and finishing filming,” says Billie, who finally moved into her dream home with her family last month after years of renovations on the £1.4 million property.

“I’ve never done a move like that so I didn’t know how exhausting it was going to be, especially heavily pregnant. I’m just so grateful we’re in the house now.

“It’s been a real juggle where I’m working and I’ve got the kids. There have been a lot of emotions, and when you’re pregnant you’re emotional anyway with your hormones.”

Billie, who is due December 6, continues, “It’s hard when you’ve got other children. People say, ‘You need to rest and take time out,’ and I would love to but it’s impossible. There is just so much to do and I can’t.

“Over the next couple of weekends, I do need to try to wind down a bit. I said to Greg that I would love a lie-in in the new bed in the house.

“All I’m asking for is a lie-in one Saturday or Sunday morning with tea and biscuits in bed, so I think I’m going to try to get that ticked off the list!”

Billie and Greg announced they were expecting their third child back in June with a sweet family snap on Instagram.

Sharing a shot of herself and Greg in the sea in Abu Dhabi with Arthur and Nelly, who kissed her mum’s bump, Billie wrote: “Baby number 3 we can’t wait to meet you…We are so happy and excited”.

The mum-of-two, who has also launched a Christmas gifting edit with Baylis & Harding, added smiling, heart and star emojis to her captions.

Friends of the former TOWIE star rushed to share their congratulations, while sister Sam Faiers, who welcomed her third child in May, couldn’t wait to share her excitement.

"Welcome to the 5 club sis. I’m so so happy for you all. Another beautiful baby to join our family,” wrote Sam, 31.

"The babies are going to be so close in age. So many memories to make. My prediction is a baby girl? then we have one of each.

"Love you with all my heart xxx ps what I’d give for sand between my toes right now haha, enjoy your holiday with your family a tiny baby bump. Miss u all x.”
