Amy Willerton has revealed that she was mugged for her phone last week, despite being nine months pregnant.
The model, who is expecting her first child with her fiancé Daniel Day, took to Instagram to tell her followers about the shocking news on Wednesday night.
She is particularly devastated as she bought the phone to take better pictures of her baby and it also contained her hypnobirthing tracks, private notes and photos.
Alongside a picture of Daniel and their dog lounging on the sofa, Amy said she is two weeks over her due date and called herself an “easy target”.
Amy wrote: “Dear Mr Pickpocket, I do understand desperation often makes many of us turn to things we would rather not do.
“But I don’t think you understand the implications that stealing my phone (that I had just bought to take better pictures of my baby) last week has had on something really quite important in my life.”
“I was #41weekspregnant and therefore became an easy target.”
Amy said the materials she had on the phone had helped her prepare for giving birth, something she had been “terrified of”.
She continued: “Remember when you see a pregnant lady she is not just that big belly — that baby is her hopes, dreams and future and her every waking breath goes into building and preparing for that new life.
“I was terrified of birth… But I spent months and months obsessively doing what I needed to do in order to trust in myself and believe that I could do it.
“My #hynobirthing tracks, the playlist I made to keep myself calm, the notes I wrote to myself, all lost… little things but they meant a lot to me.”
She then had a message for her followers on how to treat pregnant women.
Amy added: “So please when you see someone carrying life remember that baby was imagined up months, even years before she became pregnant – there is always a journey to motherhood and it’s often a silent one.
“Be nice to her, offer her your seat on the tube, and help her if she is struggling as I know I have often found it very to difficult ask for help but I’ve never been this vulnerable before…”
She confirmed her pregnancy in October when she was already five months along.
Amy and Daniel got engaged in March this year and discovered they were expecting soon after.
