Also in the picture was a hospital bag ready for when she gave birth: "Little one’s bag all packed ready for the ultimate adventure. Thank you for the beautiful gift @pacapod #FinalCountdown #36weeks"

Brooke, who married her husband in a winter wonderland wedding at a Surrey country estate in 2017, revealed she was pregnant at the end of June along with a photo of her baby scan.
