However, from the looks of these pictures, it was well worth the wait.
Rochelle Humes has posted pictures on Instagram of the couple’s belated honeymoon to the Maldives with the singer proudly showing off her baby bump.
The singer can be seen relaxing in a hammock over crystal blue water alongside the caption: ‘Bump at Sea’.

And it seems that the happy couple has been receiving the VIP treatment you would expect from a five star resort.
On arrival, Rochelle and Marvin were welcomed a romantic bubble bath covered in rose petals, some of which were used to spell out MR/S HUMES.
The couple enjoyed a ‘mini-moon’ to Portugal following their marriage in July but had to put off the official trip until now due to their conflicting schedules.
Rochelle Humes previously revealed that the two would be spending their official Honeymoon in the Maldives where Marvin had initially proposed.
She said: “We are returning to the Maldives because that's where Marvin proposed. It's very special and fits in nicely.”
However, this time around Rochelle Humes noticed the vast difference in her eating and drinking habits since becoming pregnant.
She tweeted: “Sushi restaurants are now a VERY different experience for me...non alcoholic Mojito and a cucumber roll, haha”
Still it’s hardly the worst thing to deal with when you consider the stunning surroundings.
