Katherine Ryan is PREGNANT! Comic reveals she is set to welcome her second child after unveiling her baby bump at live show
Katherine Ryan is pregnant with her second child, her first with partner Bobby Kootstra.
The comedian, 37, took to the stage for a live recording of her podcast Telling Everybody Everything in Kentish Town on Thursday and unveiled her baby bump while dressed in a sparkling silver midi dress.
While she did show off her bump to the crowd, Katherine chose not to reveal when she was due to give birth as she claimed her best advice to other pregnant women was not to reveal that information.

Katherine said during the live show that she was keen to remain coy about her due date because it stopped people asking too many questions.
She already has one daughter Violet, 11, who she is fiercely protective of, it is not known who the Your Face Or Mine? host shares her daughter with.
She had a civil partnership with childhood sweetheart Bobby Kootstra in December last year, in a low-key ceremony in Denmark after the pair rekindled their romance.

In March, Katherine shared a snap where she posed in a stunning lemon yellow dress and posed with her arms crossed in her lap.
A few fans speculated that the comedian might be pregnant in the snap, and even offered their heartfelt congratulations to her.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline at the time, she told how a big star-studded wedding was never on the cards.
She said: ‘I don’t want a big occasion because of the history of it and the fact women used to belong to their fathers and then belong to their husbands and put on a white dress because they’re virgins, I mean I think it’s gross and I don’t want to do it.
‘I appreciate that other people like to have a party but again I get to put on beautiful dresses and not have to make an invite list and arrange seating and hire a DJ, I just don’t want to do those things at all.’
Katherine reconnected with Bobby after 20-years when the pair agreed to have a one-night stand. Deep-down, the comedian always knew she would end up with her ex, even keeping love letters he sent her in their teens.
And she said she believes their relationship has only been made stronger by the fact Bobby was previously married.
Katherine explained: ‘I loved him so much – I still have all of our letters that we wrote to each other when we were 15/16 and I had them made into a blanket for our one-year anniversary because I’m such a nerd.
‘But then I was glad that we weren’t together for 20 years as well because I went off and I did all of these interesting things and he went off and did all these interesting things.
‘I don’t think most men are really ready to be married until they’ve been divorced. I never really wanted to get married, it’s when I became totally satisfied with the idea of being alone that he magically walked into my life.
‘I did everything I could not to marry him. I thought, this is not my plan but when it’s meant to be it’s just so easy and I wish I had known that all along.’
In 2019, Katherine opened up about the close relationship she has with her daughter, who she calls her best friend, with The Mirror.
She said of Violet: ‘My daughter Violet and I have a unique relationship. I really like her and love her, and it’s special that I’ve been alone with her for a long time, so we have a little bit of a sisterly relationship – which I know can be dangerous when she gets older, but I’m risking it.
‘We live in a democracy. I always say, we’re not a mum and a 10-year-old. We’re two 10-year-olds, but one of us has a credit card and a driving licence. We’re unstoppable.’
