Although the woman's face is out of shot, what looks like Michaella's blonde hair can be seen just in frame. She is nestling between the legs of an unseen man, who is resting one hand on her bump.

McCollum appeared keen to keep a low profile at Jojo Maman Bebe, sporting a large floppy hat as she enjoyed a browse in the store. 

She was seen picking out a number of children's clothes inside the store, which was advertising a 50 per cent off sale.  

It comes after she was seen perusing through the pram collection at Mamas & Papas a week ago with Mone.

Michaella's representative previously declined to comment when asked if she was expecting.

The former model has been spotted on several shopping trips since her agent confirmed that she is currently working on a documentary about life in prison. 

She is also due to publish her first book, which is set to hit shelves this summer. 

It was previously reported that she had been offered a £250,000 deal for the book, detailing her criminal exploits and time behind bars in Lima.

Since returning to the UK, Michaella's lifestyle has been a stark contrast to former accomplice Melissa Reid, who has landed a charity job at Citizens Advice.  

Melissa applied for a job at the charity after she was released from the South American jail last June. 

A week ago Mone joined her at Mamas and Papas where the pair could be seen shopping for pushchairs

Meanwhile, Michaella has been accused of capitalising on her notoriety, after it emerged she has signed with a talent agency in May. 

The pair were sentenced to spend six years and eight months inside a grim jail in Lima, after they were caught trying to smuggle the huge quantity of cocaine.

Michaella was released on parole last March after serving less than half of her sentence but initially had to stay in Peru.

She carried out voluntary work in the country until August, when she flew back home to Belfast.
