FORMER Real Housewives of Cheshire star Nermina Pieters-Mekic and her husband Erik are expecting their first child together.
The couple have confirmed they’re expecting the tiny pitter patter of feet in April, a year after Nermina, 30, suffered a devastating miscarriage.

Soon after her miscarriage in November 2019, the Bosnian-Dutch singer underwent surgery to remove a growth on her uterus.
And following a difficult fertility journey, the ITVBe star revealed to OK! Magazine that she’s now 22-weeks pregnant.
Nermina explained she learnt of her pregnancy a day before she jetted off to Crete for a romantic getaway with Erik, who plays with Burnley FC.
The reality TV star said of finding out she was pregnant: “It was such a surprise and we were so happy!”

The couple, who have been married for four years, said the pregnancy means all the more after their difficult year.
“We’re more excited as we’re finally having the baby we always wanted,” she added. “It’s made us realise how lucky we are because we’ve been on the other side.”
Nermina also explained that she experienced all-day sickness in her first trimester but is happy that she was able to overcome it.

The TV star first appeared on ITVBe’s Real Housewives of Cheshire in season six.
However, she was last seen on the popular show on series seven, but hasn’t ruled out a return to the series.
“I left on a really good note, so I know the door’s open,” she told the publication. “Right now though, I’m busy with the house and the baby!”
