Charlotte Crosby has shared the realities of her pregnancy journey so far, admitting that she's been finding it tough.

There has been a lot of excitement since the former Geordie Shore star delightedly announced she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Jake Ankers earlier this month.

However, the 31 year old television personality took to her Instagram Story on Thursday to tell fans that she has been "struggling".

Sharing a selfie of herself looking glum, the reality star favourite penned: "Absolutely STRUGGLING here. I'm WIPED out. I haven't spoken much about my actual pregnancy journey so far, but WOW it's a hell of a ride, isn't it."

Charlotte went on to share two crying with laughter emojis as she added: "I am looking forward to Sunday for some propa rest". [sic]

This comes after the star recently left fans laughing after she revealed her plan to share her pregnancy news with her parents didn't quite go the way she'd hoped.

Charlotte explained on YouTube that she had fortune cookies made, in which one said "Can't wait to meet you nana!!" and the other had "Can't wait to meet you grandad!!" written in it.

Predicting that her parents would be a little confused with just the notes, she decided to take a pregnancy test, which she planned on taking out and sliding across the table to them to confirm the news.

However, during the actual reveal, the cookies got mixed up – leaving her dad with the one that said "nana" and her mum with the one that had "grandad" in it.

Charlotte also recently shared a snap of herself at her first ultrasound and revealed the "magical moment" she saw her unborn tot for the first time.

Since announcing their pregnancy, Charlotte and Jake enjoyed a sun-drenched getaway to Dubai.

It was also revealed that the reality star is so pleased about impending motherhood as she's "always wanted to become a mum".

A source exclusively told OK!: "Charlotte's family are really happy for her. They know how much she has always wanted to be a mam.

"They can see how happy she and Jake are together and how they are so well suited and ready to start a family."
