However, Amanda and Chris are said to insist that their eldest daughter finish her studies before embarking on a fashion career.
A source told The Sun: ‘Amanda was determined to finish her studies first. The family is excited and proud. ‘
Amanda has previously talked about her heartache after she and Chris tragically lost their little son Theo when he was stillborn at seven months.
In an interview with MailOnline last year, she said: ‘I’ve talked about it often, but I really believe that my stillbirth, my little boy, chose me. Because he was not destined to come to earth.

‘I think you can get through most things if you have a rock-solid marriage and family around you.
‘Someone said to us, “Hold on to each other, for this is going to be an uneven ride” basically. It was an understatement. ‘
Amanda said both she and Chris were diagnosed with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) in the wake of the tragedy and sought therapy to deal with the loss of their child.
She told The Sun: ‘After we first lost him, Chris and I were diagnosed with PTSD, so we went and got some therapy on it that everyone wanted.
‘I just felt like everything was my fault and I felt so responsible – what was I doing wrong?’ Not a day goes by that I do not think of Theo, especially when a new school year begins. ‘
