Chloe following in sister Leigh's footsteps to be a mum

CONGRATS are in order for top model Chloe Arnold, who is due her first baby with long-term boyfriend Justin Manville (right), the Diary can reveal.

The doe-eyed beauty is said to be over the moon at the prospect of becoming a mum, shortly after her sister Leigh had her first baby with fiance Steve Davies.

Chloe (29), who has branched out after graduating with a degree in Fashion Journalism from London College of Fashion, confirmed the good news to the Diary.

"Yes we are expecting a little bundle in September, we're very excited," she said.

Herself and her musician boyfriend revealed their good news on Facebook. The London-based couple have been inundated with messages of support from all their family and friends, with plenty of quips about how "ridiculously good looking" the baby will be, given that Justin is a former model.

The pair are said to be "really excited" about the thought of becoming parents.

Top model Chloe had been working on the Irish scene for eight years after signing up with Assets Agency before deciding to move to London.
