IT’S from here to maternity for Brian and Pippa. The celebrity couple are in talks about filming another reality TV show based around Pippa’s pregnancy.

“It makes sense after the show about the wedding,” 27-year-old Pippa said today. “It’s the next phase”.

Last year, RTE televised broadcast a one-off hour-long documentary ‘Brian and Pippa Get Married’.

The hour long show followed TV presenter Brian and model Pippa as they prepared for their big day.

The show, which contained plenty of tension, tears and tulle, was a ratings hit.

So it makes sense that RTE would commission a sequel and document the next chapter in the couple’s life. Pippa has already been talking to the producers of ‘Brian and Pippa Get Married’, Straywave Media.

“I’ve spoken to Straywave about doing a show about the pregnancy. I’m good friends with them and I’m always chatting with them about ideas for TV shows anyway,” she said.

Straywave were the brains behind esteemed TV shows Fade Street and Celebrity Salon. They are also currently filming Vogue and Brian McFadden’s reality TV pilot with the intention of selling it on to an Australian network.

Pippa says working with Straywave has always been a pleasure and would love to work with producer John Norton in the future.

“They’re a great team to work with. They really listen to your suggestions and take your input on board.”

But RTE would want to get their skates on as the leggy model is due to pop early next year.

“It’s still early days but we would want to start filming soon because I’m not going to stay like this forever,” Pippa laughes while rubbing her stomachd.

Despite being over four months pregnant, Pippa is as petite as ever.

“Yeah, it’s not much of a baby bump yet,” she admits. “It’s more like a little pouch, a kangaroo pouch, but it’s getting there.”

The model says she’s unsure whether she’s had any bizarre cravings. “I haven’t had any weird cravings, at least I don’t think I have she says.

“I think half of that is in your head. Things like ice-cream and chocolate and sweets. I don’t know if you really are craving them or you’re just letting yourself eat all that rubbish because you’re pregnant and can get away with it.

Either way, Pippa is enjoying eating whatever she wants, whenever she wants”I’m really enjoying it, not watching your diet – it’s great. I can eat what I want when I want.”

But despite eating a ton of junk food, the mum-to-be is glowing and definitely looks ready for her close up.
