"It was a really magical experience and bought a tear to both of our eyes. I’m so glad that she’s wanted me with her at all her appointments, it means so much to me to be with her every step of the way.

Speaking after she first found out she was going to be a gran, Kim said: “We’re over the moon. It makes me feel so emotional that my baby is having a baby of her own.

“I’ve always looked forward to having grandchildren. Although I’m not relishing being called Grandma, so I’ve been researching alternative names.”

Kym, who recently started dating Army officer Scott Ratcliffe, was only 18 when she gave birth to her first child David, 23.

The ex-Hear’Say singer, also mum to seven-year-old Polly, added: “I know what it’s like to be young and pregnant – it’s scary, but Emilie will be a great mum.

“I’ve warned her that it’s going to be hard work but I’ve also said there are a lot of positives to being a young mum.”
