Is Steph Married With Husband? How True Are The Pregnancy Rumors?

Steph and her girlfriend are adding a new member to her family! 

In July 2019, The Sun claimed that Steph told her loved ones and her family that she was due in November with her baby. However, it is also known that Steph and her TV executive partner will keep their pregnancy private due to which there might not be any magazine shoots. 

The news about pregnancy has thrilled Steph and her girlfriend and they are eagerly waiting to welcome their new member into the world with a new light of hope.

Steph who kept her relationship private up to now, openly announcing the news of expecting a baby, surprised her fans and viewers.

Even though she has not publicly mentioned her girlfriend's identity but she is shown on the show of Easy Ways to Live Well together with Steph.

Nevertheless, one year before, she received congratulatory messages from her viewers because of the misunderstanding. In 2018, Steph faced an awkward situation where viewers mistakenly assumed her to be pregnant.

However, by seeing all these funny sides, Steph denied the rumor by giving the hilarious response, she said she was not with child, but she was with the potbelly. It was somewhere in early 2018 when Steph refuted her pregnancy rumors with this witty response.

However, nearly 18 months later, the BBC presenter announced that she was really pregnant. Steph also announced that the baby's arrival was due for November 2019.

Apparently, Steph has been busy preparing herself for the arrival of the baby. Lately, both Steph and her girlfriend seem extremely thrilled about happiness in their way.

Also, after the announcement of her pregnancy, many of Steph's fans want her to reveal about her love life with her partner. However, it seems like Steph's partner still wants things to remain private. It has been unveiled that Steph's girlfriend is a telly executive, but no other information on her has been revealed to this date.

It might be because she is a career-oriented person and likes to keep her personal life private.
