This comes after brunette beauty Meava shared a pregnancy update with her followers, cradling her blossoming baby bump with her left hand – which featured not one but two rings. Next to her 2.5-carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring, which James gave her during a recent trip to Italy, the TV star was also wearing a band made up of eternity symbols, which many assumed was a wedding ring.

She shared the message and responded by explaining why she was wearing two rings – and there’s a very practical reason. “Lol I knew I was gonna get messages like that. I have to wear another ring as my engagement ring is slightly big, and can’t resize it just yet as I’ll have swollen fingers because of pregnancy. So I wear another ring as I don’t want to lose it!” she wrote.

The couple – who are due to welcome their baby in November – opened up to HELLO! about James’ shock proposal at the Trevi Fountain in Rome, which he had been planning for a year after asking her father Thierry for permission to ask for Maeva’s hand back in April 2021.
He got down on one knee as Maeva threw a coin into the fountain and made a wish. “I did my wish which was ‘I really hope James is going to propose to me soon,'” she recalled. “And then I opened my eyes and he was there on one knee. I was thinking ‘Wow, this is it! Is this real?’ It was everything I had ever wanted.”

She added: “I feel protected – being engaged to the man of my dreams is amazing. It’s a different love, it’s stronger, it’s deeper. I feel safe.”
This comes just weeks after Maeva popped the question to James on Made in Chelsea, which didn’t end well. Speaking to HELLO! about the proposal, she told us: “I think deep down it was a relief. I was glad he said no, because it wasn’t the right thing to do. Sometimes I rush into things.”
