Megan McKenna has provided an update on her pregnancy journey.

Sharing two snaps of herself and fiancé Oliver Burke standing with a sonogram, plus a video from the hospital, the TOWIE personality informed her Instagram followers that they'd chosen to discover their baby's gender upon arrival.

"Do you think our baby looks like me or Oli? Or a mix? These are just the best," read McKenna's caption. "To answer your questions we are waiting to see what the sex is... it's the only time in life you get a real surprise!"

Back in April, the TV star also opened up about a bad reaction to some medication she was on.

"The reason why I've been really incognito is I've really not been well," said McKenna.

"I had an allergic reaction to the medication I had for my urine infection, and had to go to A&E with Olly. I was really not well. My belly was double the size – bearing in mind my belly's already big – and it was an absolute nightmare so definitely not taking that medication anymore."

Reflecting further on this health setback, she highlighted the fact her body was "so much more hypersensitive" now that it was growing a little human.

"It is more scarier being pregnant and having that because I worry about it affecting the baby, but after speaking to the doctors at the hospital, they said it can't actually affect the baby having an allergic reaction," explained McKenna.

"So that's why I haven't been on [Instagram], so I've been recovering getting myself better, but I feel so much better and I'll be back to cooking my dinners for everybody."

The Only Way Is Essex airs on ITVBe and streams on ITVX.
