Katherine Ryan covers her baby bump in a chic colourful striped dress


She recently revealed she is pregnant with her second child, her first with partner and childhood sweetheart Bobby Kootstra.

And Katherine Ryan looked radiant as she showed off her blossoming baby bump when she arrived in style at the Chromantics: A Fashion Showcase event by designer Kitty Joseph, which was held at The Tide in Peninsula Square, London, on Saturday.

The comedian, 37, covered her bump in a chic colourful dress that had a pleated design and featured stripes of blue, black, pink and red.

Katherine paired the stylish ensemble with a pair of black sandals so she could enjoy the sun-soaked weather.

The blonde beauty pulled her locks back into a tight bun and she wore a light palette of make-up for the occasion. 

She opted to keep her accessories minimal so that all attention remained on her ensemble, and she wore a simple pair of hoop earrings.

She took to Instagram earlier in the day to hit back at ‘sexist’ questions asking if she’ll cancel her upcoming tour because she’s pregnant. 

The comedian defiantly told her followers: ‘I’m just gonna let that sexism wash over me. I’m not gonna let it affect my zen. No, I’m not cancelling my tour.’ 

Katherine recorded the frustrated video in a cosy plaid padded jacket and went make-up free as she explained her plans to her followers.

Filming outside in front of a horse pen, the irritated comedian said: ‘I’ve received a lot of really touching nice messages and a lot of rude messages…

…and a lot of messages – A LOT of messages – asking if I’m gonna cancel my tour…No I’m not cancelling my tour.’  

‘Your Dad Is Cancelling His Tour,’ she humorously added, alongside a regal snap of her accentuating her burgeoning baby bump in a black T-shirt and jeans.  

Katherine is due to give birth over the summer and will go on her six-stop tour in the UK titled Missus from November 2021 to May 2022.

Katherine made her pregnancy announcement during a live recording of her podcast Telling Everybody Everything in Kentish Town on Thursday, before Bobby shared the bump shot and Katherine posted a selfie showing her stomach. 

She first revealed her baby bump during an appearance on Celebrity Juice last week, but did not discuss her pregnancy during the show and she has now shown the bump in a series of stunning shots. 

Katherine looked sensational in the shot as she posed in just a bra and low-slung trousers with her silhouette showing off her rounded stomach.

She revealed she is due to give birth over the summer at her podcast recording, but refused to give an exact date as she claimed her best advice to other pregnant women was not to reveal that information. 

At the live show she said she was keen to remain coy about her due date because it stopped people asking too many questions.

She sported a skin-tight cream dress which showed off the full extent of her growing belly and was given flowers during the show.

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 in December 2019, in a low-key ceremony in Denmark after the pair rekindled their romance. 

Katherine has most recently been spending time in Devon with Bobby where she has been filming new ITV2 dating show Ready To Mingle, which will be released later this year.

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. 

This will be Katherine’s first child with Bobby, who she married in December 2019. 

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline about her civil partnership shortly after the ceremony, 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 but their romance soon blossomed.

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.’
