Actress Leigh Arnold has announced she is expecting another baby.

The Clinic star posted a photograph on Twitter of her son Hunter lovingly touching her bump to reveal the good news.

The 35-year-old said that she and her other half Steve Davies were "over the moon".

"Happy mummy's day mummy! #happiness #bunintheoven" Leigh wrote online.

It comes almost two years after the tragic death of Leigh and Steve's son Flynn. Leigh is the patron of First Light, a sudden infant death charity, following the sudden death of her second child who died in May 2013, just two weeks after his birth.

Leigh told followers on Twitter at the weekend that she's suffering morning sickness and since the online announcement she has received dozens of well wishes.

"Thank you for all the messages. We are over the moon!! X," Leigh wrote.

Arnold and her long-term partner Davies got married in Ibiza last year.

Their wedding was postponed following the tragic death of Flynn.

Leigh recently said that getting married has brought her closer to her other half and a feeling of being a "family unit".

"I know they say marriage is not important and it wasn't for me until I had my sons, then we wanted to really celebrate our love by getting married," she said.

"Our wedding was cancelled and postponed and we just did a full circle, so did exactly what we wanted without pleasing others.

"The wedding was an extremely private, intimate, spiritual and beautiful celebration."

Leigh recently revealed details of her husband's romantic proposal in Glendalough, Wicklow.

"His timing was perfect as the sun started to rise over the lake, he asked me to marry him," she said.

"The rest is history."
