Made In Chelsea star Louise Thompson and her fiancé Ryan Libbey have confirmed the gender of their unborn baby in an adorable video.
The short clip, which was posted on Instagram, shows Louise and her fiancé Ryan Libbey in a field as they prepare to play a game of baseball.
Louise shows off her bump in a short dusky pink dress and a cream cardigan as she walks in the grass alongside her beau.
Throwing the ball up and down, Louise laughs and caresses her bump as Ryan prepares to hit it with a bat.
As the bat makes contact with the ball, a cloud of blue smoke emerges – confirming that the happy couple are expecting a baby boy.

The news came just two months after the couple bravely spoke out about their experience of miscarriage, losing a baby shortly after learning Louise had fallen pregnant.
Thankfully, Louise and Ryan managed to conceive again and decided to share the baby's ultrasound on Instagram as they confirmed the heartwarming news.
Louise bravely put down her feelings in the post as she admitted she was worried history would repeat itself.

But, she shared the message alongside lovely images of her and Ryan, 30, embraced and holding up an image of the baby scan as well as a cute pair of white baby trainers.
She started her post saying the pair were "counting our blessings".
She continued: "I thought I’d have all sorts of creative ways to deliver this information but the truth is the last 12 weeks have been quite challenging. Unlike last time, Ryan and I haven’t documented our journey at all.
"I’ve hardly taken any pictures or videos for fear that something might happen. I’ve also felt like A**."

And she explained how she "never knew that fatigue or ‘flatness’ like this existed in pregnancy".
The fitness guru admitted that this time, instead of thousands of pictures, she'd taken a "billion gazillion" pregnancy tests to make sure everything was okay along the way.
She admitted that the journey to date has been even harder on her partner.
"I’m definitely lucky to have such a sensitive partner and I feel safe in the knowledge that you are going to be the best dad in the world," she gushed.
