Reality star Luisa Zissman is expecting her first child with her new Irish husband.
The 28-year-old shot to fame on the ninth series of The Apprentice and wed millionaire businessman Andrew Collins (45), who is worth an estimated €50m, in a secret ceremony in Ireland last year.
The businesswoman announced today on Twitter she's pregnant via a picture of a positive pregnancy test and has confirmed the news is not an April Fool's joke. She has a daughter Dixie (six) from a previous marriage.
Collins, from Dublin, has had a string of successful business ventures and investments, but avoids the spotlight, unlike his other half, who also featured on Celebrity Big Brother.

He first made his fortune selling a stake in Needahotel.com to private equity group Cendant for €60m in 2005, made €24m for his 30% stake in online insurance company 123.ie and is now involved in Prepaypower.ie
He popped the question to his girlfriend of just one year in Paris in 2014 with an eight-carat diamond ring from Boodles.
"I guess you come to a point in life when you meet someone and think, ‘Actually I want to spend all my time with that person’," Luisa gushed after getting engaged.
"That was what happened to me, and I am really happy. I feel for the first time in my adult life that I know who I am."
