Nicola Adams and Ella Baig have announced they are expecting a baby.

Proud parents-to-be: Nicola Adams has revealed she’s expecting a baby with girlfriend Ella Baig: ‘We’re so excited to share this magical journey’ (pictured on Wednesday) 

The couple’s Instagram post read: ‘We’re so excited to announce that our family is expanding.

‘After what feels like a lifetime, we can finally say we’re going to be parents!

‘We’re so excited to share this magical journey with you all, the ups, the downs everything in between. Welcome to the world little one.’

Nicola told Vogue of their fertility journey: ‘We decided that Ella would carry the baby, that we’d use my egg, and find a sperm donor that resembled Ella. The main hurdle was not knowing as much about IVF as we do now – about the tests that needed to be done and the things to look out for which can affect the pregnancy. 

‘Unbeknownst to us, Ella went through her first rounds of IVF with an underactive thyroid which can dramatically impact the chances of having a healthy pregnancy. It’s something that’s easy to diagnose with blood tests and treat with medication. Our first attempt failed and Ella had a miscarriage. ‘

The most common way for a woman in a same-sex relationship to become pregnant is to use donated sperm.

Same-sex couples can also conceive via co-parenting – This is when 2 or more people team up to conceive and parent children together.  

LGBT+ couples in the UK can also adopt or foster a child together.  

In 2020 Ella opened up about her sexuality and her two-year relationship with Olympic boxer Nicola Adams in a candid new interview.

The model said that the Strictly stae is the first ‘masculine lesbian’ she has ever dated, after initially believing she fancied women who ‘looked more like her’.

Ella also revealed that she had no idea she was bisexual and believed that ‘everyone’ was attracted to women, before her friends explained that wasn’t the case. 

Speaking to hosts Bobby Norris and First Dates waitress Cici Coleman on Fubar’s Access All Areas, Ella candidly detailed discovering her sexuality, and said:

‘Growing up and never seeing people with your sexuality on TV, any like celebrities that come out and things like that. 

‘I had no clue about my sexuality when I was younger. For ages, I genuinely just thought that everyone thought that women were attractive, and it was normal, and I didn’t fancy them.

‘I just thought they were attractive and that’s what everyone thought.’

Ella has been dating Nicola for four years, having met on a night out in Leeds.
