Louise Redknapp's pregnant glow was on full beam during a romantic getaway in Italy with her husband Jamie yesterday.

The radiant 33-year-old proudly showed off her growing baby bump as she strolled around the pool of a luxury resort of Porto Carvo, Sardinia, in a strapless black bikini and low slung skirt.

The couple, who are 'delighted' to be expecting their second child, looked happier than ever during their afternoon in the sun.

At one point, Jamie attentively caressed his wife's belly and the pair later giggled the day away as they reclined on loungers.

Louise has previously said she was stunned to discover she'd conceived so quickly this time around after it took her four years to fall pregnant with their first child, Charley.

She suffering from the womb condition endometriosis and underwent two laser surgery operations to correct it.

Louise, who is now four months pregnant, revealed: 'It was just absolute shock when I found out.

Hands on: Jamie gently caressed his wife's growing bump

'It took me four years to have Charley and so this time, after just a month, it was very unexpected. We had talked about having another baby and we kind of expected the same problems as last time.'

'When I did the pregnancy test, I nearly fell off the chair. My friend popped in and I dragged her upstairs and said, "You've got to look at this. Am I reading it wrong?"'

'I rang Jamie straight away. He was absolutely delighted.

'It was such a relief to think I wouldn't have to go through all that treatment to get pregnant again. The doctors don't know why it has been so much easier this time – it's just the luck of the draw I guess.'

Since taking time out of her solo career in 2004, Louise has turned to TV presenting and modelling.

She became the host of Clothes Show last year and has also been named the new face of Triumph lingerie.

Minnie Driver showed off her huge baby bump as she enjoyed a swim at a Malibu beach yesterday.

The 38-year-old actress/singer is seven months pregnant with her first child, but has declined to name the father.

A day after celebrating the impending birth with a baby shower at a friend's home in the beachside LA suburb, Minnie spent the day relaxing on the beach.

Surfs up: At seven months, Minnie Driver is still active enough to swim in the Malibu sea

Dressed in a white tankini, it appears Minnie found the blistering California sunshine too hot for her huge baby bump and rolled up her top to create a makeshift bikini bra.

Despite living most of the year in California, it appeared Minnie has been sheltering from the sun given her pasty skin colour.

On Saturday, Minnie's best friend hosted the actress and 40 friends at a beachside baby shower.

The house was decorated in pink and white peonies and the food on offer included finger sandwiches and berry cake from Sweet Lady Jane.

Guests were invited to customise babygrows and write personal notes to Minnie in her baby book.

Last month, the Good Will Hunting star denied reports Californian musician Craig Zolezzi was the father of her unborn child.

She said: '"I want to shield the baby's dad as much as I can because it wasn't his choice to get roped into all this stuff.

'It'll come out in time. There'll be some other bump people will be interested in and I'll have this baby and get on with my life.'
