Katie Piper's boyfriend is already a doting dad to their unborn baby.

The Now columnist recently found out that she's expecting a little girl with 29-year-old carpenter James, who she's been dating for two and a half years, and she's certain that he's going to be a great father.

‘When we found out we were having a girl, James said, "Oh no, two girls to look after!"' says Katie, 30.

‘But actually, he's over the moon to be having a daughter and I know he's going to be a wonderful dad, because he's very nurturing and protective.

‘He kisses my bump goodbye before he leaves for work every morning and is so excited to meet our daughter.'

Katie, who became a charity campaigner after being attacked with acid in 2008, thinks she's found her perfect partner in James.

‘He makes me feel so loved and when I get insecure he'll tell me that, to him, I'm not burnt,' the mum-to-be tells Hello!

‘I'm all these other lovely things which he'll remind me of. That's the great thing about having a child together - I feel like I have a new start, that I can leave the past behind.'

The couple are due to welcome their little girl in March.
