They currently reside at Six Sense Zighy Bay, a five-star luxury resort in the Arabian Peninsula.
And while sharing a sneak peek of their time off with her followers, Binky posted a photo of her growing belly sunbathing on the beach.
She covered up in a black bandeau bikini top and showed off her belly, writing next to the photo, “happy bump.”
She also shared a photo of Max walking around the resort in a shirt, swimming trunks and traditional headdress, captioned “sheer perfection.”
Sharing the posts on her social media, she wrote: “We have reached this hidden paradise.
‘Day 1 without responsibilities, that takes some getting used to! …& recharge well before the madness sets in & we are quite outnumbered.
Max and I both started a real book today for the first time in years and took about 5 naps on the beach.
‘Not too far from hospitals (Max’s only condition) Zika virus free & just the most beautiful place & incredibly friendly people… really looking forward to the next few days.’

It comes after she recently revealed she’s still processing a gestational diabetes diagnosis.
Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar that can develop at any time during pregnancy, but is more common in the second or third trimester and usually resolves after the baby is born.
Binky, who is in her third trimester, appeared on GB News on Tuesday and told Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster, “I’m still learning about it. It was only diagnosed last week, I have no idea what’s really going on, but I think there’s quite a stigma around GED because people think you have it if you’re really unhealthy or overweight.
“But I like working out, I eat healthy, go for a walk most days, so that’s really not the case.”
“When I posted about it, it gave people a little bit of confidence to say, ‘Okay, this is actually quite common.’ I had no idea how common it was until I got it myself.
“I’m just figuring out what to eat. And since I’m in my third trimester, of course I want to eat beige.’
Binky added, “Apparently there is a certain order in which you can eat your food. So your green leaves first and then I think it’s protein and carbs.
“But there are ways you can do it. And you can have a cheat day now and then.’
Binky is already mum to daughter India with her ex-boyfriend and former MIC co-star Josh Patterson, and shares son Wolfie, 19 months, 2021, with Max.

When asked about becoming a mom, she said, “It’s the most rewarding job I’ve ever had and that I do.” I guess I’m not quite there yet.
“The hardest thing for me will be when my kids fly out of the nest and they’re out god knows what time doing god knows what, and I can’t control them anymore.
“Actually, that’s what I’m most afraid of.”
Binky also said that she sees Max India as his daughter when asked if they use the term blended family.
She said, “I never actually say it. I just had to say it in the book because it’s the only thing people know how to say these days.
“We don’t consider ourselves a blended family. We are a family, yes. I would never want India to call her brothers her half-brothers.
‘Max considers India his daughter. There is no kind of step section. And that is very important to me. I don’t want India to feel less than her brothers, because she’s basically Max’s stepdaughter.’
Binky added: ‘I got pregnant with my eldest, India, who was almost six when I was 26, so I was the first of my friends to get pregnant.
And it was certainly a bit of a shock. Very, very exciting of course. But none of my friends were in such a headspace.
“I feel like becoming a mother has given me purpose. It has given me everything I could wish for.’
Happy news: Binky is already mum to daughter India with her ex-boyfriend and former MIC co-star Josh Patterson, and shares son Wolfie, 19 months, 2021, with Max
What is Gestational Diabetes?
Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar (glucose) that develops during pregnancy and usually resolves after delivery.
It can occur at any stage of pregnancy, but is more common in the second or third trimester.
It happens when your body can’t produce enough insulin — a hormone that helps control blood sugar — to meet your extra needs during pregnancy.
Gestational diabetes can cause problems for you and your baby during pregnancy and after birth. But the risks can be reduced if the condition is detected early and managed properly.
