And a third wrote: “Your dad will know love he will be watching over you & bursting with pride.”

In her exclusive interview with OK! , Charlotte told us that she believes her late dad “tried to contact her” on the day she found out she was pregnant.

She explained: “Whenever I’ve got a big job to do or something is making me nervous, I feel like he’s watching over me.

“The day I found out I was pregnant, I was home alone and the TV just randomly turned on really loud and then switched off.

“I looked it up and apparently that can be a spirit trying to connect with you. I felt so sure that was my dad letting me know he was there.”

She added: “I’ve got so many pictures of him all over the house and I go and visit the statue of him all the time.

“I’ve told Matthew if he wants to propose, he needs to get permission from his statue first!”

On her hopes of giving birth on his birthday, she told us: “It’s so strange because when we first did the test, we worked out that my due date would land on his 90th birthday. When I told my mum that, she burst into tears.

“We went for the first scan and my due date is actually the week before, but there’s every chance I could give birth on his birthday. What a tribute that would be!”
