When asked about hiding her pregnancy she said: “Whether we like it or not, privacy is going to be very difficult for Esmeralda.

"So Ryan and I decided early on to give her as much privacy as we could. And my pregnancy was the first opportunity to give her that."

Eva and Ryan, 34, have been raising their newborn without the help of a nanny, but she has refused to rule out the possibility going forwards.

She explained: "For me that part of being a mother at this early stage is the struggle of not being able to sleep and not knowing what I'm doing and really going through it with her and battling out those nights... but I'm open to the idea of having a nanny in the future."
