In November, Marnie revealed she was pregnant with her second child.
She said: ‘We’re so excited and super happy. It was a bit of a shock but we’re just so thrilled!’
Marnie discovered she was expecting whilst she was filming a new TV show last September and found herself constantly feeling nauseous.
She said: ‘I was filming a TV show in September and we planned on trying after that. But during filming I had really weird symptoms.

‘I constantly felt sick, my gums were bleeding and I felt dizzy, but I just put it down to it being an activity-based show and the fact it was 17-hour days.
‘When I was away filming I was messaging Casey and I told him I felt really sick and my boobs were really hurting. I said it could be because I was running around and my muscles hadn’t been used in that way before, but Casey said he thought I was pregnant.
‘While we were doing that show I also did a bungee jump! Everyone had to do a medical beforehand and when they took my blood pressure it was really low. My blood pressure has never been low so that was a red flag.
‘I told Casey and he said, ‘You’re definitely pregnant!’ So as soon as I got back that night I did a pregnancy test and it came up with Pregnant straight away. We just laughed!’
Baby joy: The Geordie Shore star, 30, said she had ‘a feeling’ it would be another boy and that she was ‘so happy’ to give her son Rox, two, a little brother (pictured with Rox and Casey Johnson)
Marnie and her Casey are already parents to their little boy Rox, two, and previously admitted she ‘had a feeling’ it would be another boy.
Speaking to OK!, she said: ‘I don’t feel it was that much of a surprise. I had a feeling I was going to be having another boy when I fell pregnant. Even a psychic predicted it! I guess I always thought it was going to be a boy before I found out.’
While her fiancé Casey Johnson, 26, was sure that it was going to be a girl, the couple were happy to have a little brother for Rox.
Marnie said: ‘That’s the best thing about it. The fact I’ve given him a brother makes me so happy. I would have loved a sister when I was younger, and I love thinking about how they’re going to be best friends forever.’
It comes after Marnie revealed that severe morning sickness has left her ‘feeling like the walking dead’ during her second pregnancy.

The reality star has been suffering in her first trimester, which has been a shock after a relatively smooth pregnancy with Rox.
She told New Magazine: ‘I’ve been sick out of the car window three or four times. This time I genuinely feel like the walking dead.
‘I can’t even explain how horrendous it’s been. I feel sick all day every day. With Rox I felt so healthy and glowing and I was a ray of sunshine, I was never going to be that lucky again.
‘I’m older and my body has never been the same since having Rox so I think it was always going to happen.’
Marnie said that she first began suffering with symptoms while she was away filming for a TV show in September, with doctors noting her low pressure while she completed a bungee jump.
Elsewhere in the interview the couple – who briefly split in January – told that they have shared the happy news with their Geordie Shore co-stars and that they are ‘so excited’.
Marnie also explained that she is excited for Rox to have a sibling as she was lonely growing up as a single child.
The star also discussed suffering from chronic pain due to a UTI after her first pregnancy – which led to bouts of depression.
In the interview Marnie told how the illness was ‘horrible and life-changing’ and that she hated being in that ‘dark place’ before having a surgery which helped her.
She added that she hid her depression from people but did rely on her family to help her get through, adding that she doesn’t know how she would have coped without them.
Marnie went on to explain that the depression contributed to her brief break up with Casey as she pushed her loved ones away. But Casey was there to support her and they eventually rekindled things.

Marnie revealed that she was diagnosed with a chronic UTI in 2016 which got worse after giving birth to her son Rox in 2019.
She said that she ‘had spent ‘thousands of pounds’ on doctors’ consultations’ she was eventually diagnosed with Trigonitis in 2020.
It is a condition where the triangular piece of tissue located in the lower part of the bladder becomes inflamed.
The pair are now set to get married next year or possibly even this summer, with Marnie saying she wouldn’t mind having a bump in her wedding dress.
