The actress was speaking on her podcast Mum Talk with Emma Jaulin, as she opened up about her excitement about being pregnant.
“I’m pregnant with a little girl, another little girl,” Ali revealed.
“It was bound to happen that I’d blurt it out. But we’ve known for a while.
“I don’t know why we kept it a secret, it was just one of those things we kept quiet about for a bit.”
“So, Isla’s going get a sister! That’s magical,” Emma replied.
In September, Ali revealed that she was five months pregnant, saying: “It’s exciting but scary.”
The one-time Strictly star who played Becca Dean in the Channel 4 soap is already mum to two-and-a-half-year-old daughter Isla.
She broke her happy news on Instagram and told fans that her little girl is “going to be a big sister”.
She added: “@davidcomahony and I are over the moon to finally share our exciting news.”
Ali and David took part in a photo shoot and interview with OK! Magazine in which Ali revealed: “Isla is so excited.
“Toddlers have no concept of time, so every day she’s asking, ‘Is the baby here yet?’”
The couple married in 2019 and welcomed Isla a year later at the start of lockdown.
Speaking about their second child arriving in more normal conditions, Ali said: “I think it will be a bit bittersweet in a way.
“We’ll be able to enjoy the things that we couldn’t do last time – our families missed out on the first few months of Isla’s life – so I think there will be a bit of grief for what we couldn’t do before.
“At the same time, we were in our tiny little bubble in our flat in London and there was a beauty and simplicity in that.”
Ali also revealed they have found out the sex of their unborn child but are keeping it a secret.
“It’s so exciting, and a bit scary,” she said.
“We had a bit of a bumpy start because I had some early bleeding, so I was sent to the early pregnancy unit.
“They put me on progesterone because I’d had a miscarriage in the past (in 2018, at five weeks, before getting pregnant with Isla).
“I’m very grateful the clinic did that for me. I had a scan and then had what felt like a long two-week wait before having another, and it was an anxious time.”
