MOTHER'S Day this year is going to be extra special for Underwood mum Belinda Gray.

Along with her husband Jamie and four-year-old daughter Sierra, she will welcome the newest edition to her family just in time for her special day.

"We are booked in for a caesarean section this Friday," Mrs Gray said.

"We are really looking forward to having another little member of the family.

"We found out we are having another little girl and we haven't kept that a secret, so we thought it would be nice to keep her name as a surprise."

Mrs Gray will be taken to hospital early on Friday morning where her family of three will become a family of four before midday.

She said she was looking forward to meeting her new little girl and holding her for the first time.

"I had a caesarean with Sierra last time so I guess I know what to expect this time," she said.

"But I am still a little bit nervous.

"We just really cant wait to meet her and have cuddles."

Mrs Gray said her second pregnancy had been a lot more relaxed than her first.

"During this pregnancy, we have been a lot more casual about our new little one's arrival," she said.

"For example, we only finished painting the nursery a little over a week ago, but when we had Sierra, we had it done about three months before she arrived."

Her husband Jamie said he was over the moon with having another little daughter.

"It will be really nice to have a baby in the house again as Sierra is five in July so it has been awhile," Mr Gray said.

"We are totally excited.

"What better present could a mother get for Mother's Day."

The couple both said their daughter Sierra was already the doting big sister and was counting down the sleeps until her little sister arrived.

"Sierra is very excited," Mr Gray said.

"She cant wait to meet her little sister and she wants to help with everything which is great."

"Sierra wants to help feed her and change her nappies.

"She also wants to stand on the seat next to the cot and watch her sleep when she comes home."

Although the couple will be spending this Mother's Day in the hospital, Mrs Gray said the day would still be perfect.

"I will still be in hospital on Mother's Day which also happens to be my mother's birthday," Mrs Gray said.

"But it will still be a nice quiet day in there with family and our two beautiful children.

"It's going to be the best Mother's Day ever."
