Fearne Cotton Announces Pregnancy & Leaving Radio 1

Aw. It’s a time of BIG change for Fearne Cotton.

We’ve been hearing rumours for a while that the legendary Radio 1 presenter was expecting her second child, and now the blonde celebrity mum has confirmed the news in a statement on her official website.

She captioned a loved-up snap of herself and her hubby with the news: “Jesse and I are very happy to announce we are having another baby. I feel extremely blessed and happy that Rex will be a big brother, and we get to welcome another Wood into the world.”

Congrats guys!

Fearne also took the time to reveal another life changing piece of news, announcing the decision to leave Radio 1 in order to concentrate on her growing family.

In a heart warming look back at her 10 year career at the radio station, the Very.co.uk designer revealed, “After much time and careful thought I have decided to leave Radio 1 after ten amazing years.”

We love this lady for her eclectic fashion sense and quirky style, and her project with the fashion e-tailor has shown her natural, creative flair. But fashion isn’t her only passion. She went on to describe how important music is to her, and how much her time at one of the biggest UK radio names meant. “I have had the most incredible decade broadcasting on Radio 1, meeting wonderful people, helping break artists and watching live music from the world’s best.”



She went on, “I would like to thank Radio 1 for being such a great home and most of all to the listeners who have been on this journey with me. It’s such a kick to know you heard a band on my show first, or that the songs I’ve played have helped you through the day, so thank you.”

The starlet will present her last show on May 22nd. Sniff. 

As amazing as her family news is, we can’t help but feel a little sadness at the loss of our fave radio gal.
