Blooming: Amanda Holden shows off her baby bump for the first time outside the Britain's Got Talent auditions in Cardiff
She kept her pregnancy a secret for six months before she announcing she was expecting a baby boy three weeks ago.
But today, Amanda Holden finally gave fans a good look at her burgeoning baby bump as she attended the Britain's Got Talent auditions in Cardiff.
The actress, 39, looked glowing in a blue asymmetrical fitted dress and killer heels as she posed outside St David's Hotel as she headed to the Millennium Centre.
Despite the 7C weather, Holden felt brave enough to shed the pink jacket she has been covering her bump with in recent weeks.
She wrote on her Twitter: 'Gorgeous sunny day in Cardiff! Hope the talent is as bright.'
Joining Holden in Wales were her new fellow judges, American actor David Hasselhoff and comedian Michael McIntyre.
She added on Twitter: 'The Hoff is excited cos It's 'Cardiff Bay' Watch.'
