Manon and Luke are planning to tie the knot in her native France next year.
She told Hello! magazine in Marcg: "I grew up knowing I wanted to be a mum so I’m very happy and relaxed with being pregnant.
"The baby will be with me in the kitchen from the day it’s born."
Manon was sent home from Bake Off 2018 during the quarter final after failing to impress with her Danish baking talents – despite her ties to Denmark.

She said at the time: "I love Denmark, I have been twice to Copenhagen, and my best friend is Danish but none of that helped me! I do have a good relationship with Denmark and know it well, and I was hoping I could have made my friend proud, but she has now forgiven me!
"Every week I remained in the tent was a bonus and to be a quarter finalist, well that for me was a huge personal achievement. I didn't make it to Patisserie week, and that’s a shame as that is what we French are known for!
"I so wanted to get to that particular week as it would have made my parents so proud, but it was not to be, c’est la vie!"
