Made In Chelsea’s Maeva D’Ascanio carries a very apt slogan bag as she shows off her baby bump

She’s preparing to become a mother for the first time when she welcomes a baby with fiancé James Taylor in November.

And Made In Chelsea star Maeva D’Ascanio carried a very apt ‘mum’ slogan tote bag as she ran errands a world away from her usual SW3 stomping ground in Saffron Walden, Essex, on Monday.

The French TV personality, 30, looked elegant as she showed off her bump in a midnight blue shirt dress, teamed with a thick black and gold waist belt.

The reality star teamed her outfit with chocolate brown suede ankle boots and wore her brunette locks scraped back from her face in a high bun. 

Maeva went makeup-free to accentuate her natural pregnancy glow, while accessorising with a delicate silver pendant and her 2.5-carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring.

The Made In Chelsea favourite’s appearance came as she praised her ‘incredible’ and ‘supportive’ co-star fiancé, 27, and said she wants their baby to be ‘just like’ James in a new interview with this week’s Closer magazine. 

Famously feisty Maeva said: ‘I’m absolutely shattered from the pregnancy, planning the wedding, filming Made In Chelsea and moving house, but James has been so incredible and supportive.

‘I want the baby to be just like him, he’s always so calm and relaxed and happy. I hope they don’t inherit my feistiness, just my looks!’ 

Maeva also heaped praise upon her co-star ex-boyfriend, Miles Nazaire, 26, who she dated for three years before she joined the cast of Made In Chelsea in early 2019. 

The pair have had a notoriously rocky relationship ever since, with Miles left devastated when Maeva got together with his then-best friend James.

Maeva said: ‘I was not expecting him [Miles] to be very mature about the whole situation, but I was pleasantly surprised. He was really lovely and very supportive, which was nice.’ 

The couple’s co-star Tristan Phipps, 27, reflected on the next step in their relationship in an interview with this week’s new! magazine, in which he described Maeva as an ‘interesting character and James ‘an absolute animal’.

Tristan said: ‘We’ve learnt you never really can be surprised by Maeva, she’s such an interesting character. But was I surprised by James’ proposal? Yes I was. I’ve known James six years and when I first met him, he was an absolute animal. 

‘He was the last man standing on every night out and quite the ladies’ man, and I think everything suddenly moved quite quickly for him after he got together with Maeva.

‘From moving out of London, getting engaged and now having a baby, I don’t think it was expected. But saying this, I’m happy for him.’ 

On Saturday, mum-to-be Maeva looked back on an eventful year of getting ‘engaged to the man of my dreams and expecting a beautiful little baby’ as she reached the milestone birthday of 30.

Maeva and James are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their baby in November after announcing the fiery French beauty was pregnant in May. 

She told Hello! magazine at the time: ‘All my dreams are coming true at the same time. I still don’t believe it! It’s all amazing – I just want to enjoy it all as much as I can.’  

James said: ‘We are more excited every day. My dad told me that when he had his first child he never thought he could love something so much. 

‘And I’m starting to get an inkling of that feeling as this baby growing in Maeva’s tummy is pretty special.’

The couple, who have been together for three years, got engaged in April while visiting the Trevi Fountain in Rome. 

Maeva recalled throwing a coin into the Italian landmark as befits tradition, and making a wish that James would propose.

She told the publication: ‘I did my wish which was, “I really hope James is going to propose to me soon”. 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.’ 

James proposed with a 2.5-carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring which he designed – and had already asked Maeva’s father for permission to marry her last year.

The engagement may have come as a surprise to some Made In Chelsea viewers after James admitted to kissing another girl behind Maeva’s back on the show earlier this year, in what he described as a ‘drunken night’ at a London club.

James’ romantic gesture also came weeks after he rejected Maeva when she got down on one knee in scenes filmed for the E4 series.

The reality star confessed to drunkenly kissing another woman behind Maeva’s back, saying he ‘hated’ himself for betraying her.

James said: ‘I disrespected our relationship that night, I disrespected you, I threw everything away for a drunken night and I hate myself for it.’

Hysterically crying at the revelation, Maeva sobbed: ‘You were the man, you were the dad of my kids, I wanted to be with you for the rest of my life.’

James told Maeva ‘I’ve got a f***ing ring’ before the dramatic scene ended with viewers believing the couple had gone their separate ways.

A source subsequently told MailOnline that Maeva forgave James for the infidelity, and they decided to put the past behind them.

James said: ‘It feels like I have everything I have ever wanted – it’s that secure feeling that this is my woman, forever.’

Maeva 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.’
