Erin O'Connor has revealed she is expecting her first child by showing off a surprise baby bump at a pre-Bafta party.

The model and judge on The Face was photographed at InStyle's Best Of British Talent pre-Bafta bash wearing a tight-fitting, embellished black dress that showed an unmistakeable baby bump, which she cradled and smiled at.

Erin, 35, lives in New York with her partner who she has never named, but has said she would love to be a mum to a big brood of children.

She previously told the Daily Mail's You magazine of her partner: "He's funny and interesting and wears a suit every day to work, which seems so exotic and outlandish to me that ironically it makes him my equivalent of wild rock 'n' roll.

"He's also easy to love and I hope we'll have a baby - lots of them, if we're lucky - together. It's a nice feeling to have found The One at long last."

She added: "We have half a dozen godchildren between us, so I like to think we have some idea of what's required for parenthood."

Other guests at the party included The Saturdays' Mollie King and Vanessa White, Gary and Danielle Lineker, Caroline Flack, Olivia Grant, Anna Friel, Luke Evans, Sarah Harding and Henry Holland.
