Sam Quek has revealed she’s pregnant with her second child, seven months after welcoming a baby girl.
The Question Of Sport panellist, 33, shared the joyous news with OK! magazine on Monday, admitting the news came as a shock to herself and husband Tom Mairs.
The former hockey player – who is 17 weeks pregnant – admitted: ‘It’s come along quite quickly, so we were pleasantly surprised!’
Sam’s due date is just two weeks after her daughter Molly turns one on March 2.

Sam explained: ‘It was a surprise but we didn’t stop it happening, if that makes sense. We did discuss after Molly that we’d like kids close together and what close together meant.
‘My close together was 18 months and I wanted to start trying after Christmas. But Tom’s close together was to start trying after my six-week check!’
The couple also discussed the impact Sam’s pregnancy could have on her career prospects.
Last year Sam and rugby star Ugo Monye were approached to take over from Matt Dawson and Phil Tuffnell as captains on Question Of Sport. Paddy McGuinness replaced Sue Barker as host.

Tom assured: ‘Question Of Sport couldn’t have been more supportive. Timing-wise, it could work really well if Sam is part of the next series as the baby would arrive before filming starts.’
The couple also admitted that part of their decision to expand their family quickly also came down to losing a baby last year as they were worried it would take longer to fall pregnant.
At the beginning of 2020, Sam and Tom discovered they were five weeks pregnant after a year of trying to conceive. But five weeks later Sam miscarried.

‘I didn’t want to speak to anyone. I had guilt and shame that it was my fault,’ Sam previously said of the devastating time.
The former England hockey player then revealed that she was pregnant again in November 2019 and welcomed daughter Molly in March.
Sam and Tom married at Chester Racecourse in 2018 after getting engaged in June 2017 when Tom proposed during a holiday in Tenerife.
Before turning her hand to TV, Sam was an English former field hockey player, playing as a defender for both the England and Great Britain teams.
She won gold as part of the British team at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
