"We are so, SO thrilled ... and can't wait to welcome a mad, wonderful little human into our world.  Really hoping he/she is ginger."

"Really hoping he/she is ginger," she added, before posting a picture of an orangutan with the comment: "Apart from feeling severe resentment at the lack of promised glow we are so, SO delighted...plus, my hair looks great."
