Major congratulations are in order for X Factor alum Cher Lloyd who has just announced that she's pregnant!
The 24-year-old is expecting her first child with husband, Craig Monk.
The UK singer took to Instagram to share the announcement with a pic of her pregnant belly.
“I know it seems like I’ve been quiet for a while but I wanted to take this opportunity to bring you all up to speed on what I’ve been up to over the last year,” she started. “I decided to take some time away from the public eye to focus on what really matters and get back to what I truly love doing.”
She continues, “As you all know, making music and singing is where it all began for me, it’s what makes me truly happy, and I wanted to get back to that happy place once again, enter the studio and focus on simply making great music for you all."
“I’m so happy to announce that I now have a collection of amazing new songs (that I cannot wait to share with you all!), but also, there’s another reason why I’m writing to you today and that’s because I am beyond thrilled to inform you all that my husband Craig and I are also expecting our first child in May!!!”
“We are absolutely over the moon to share this news with you all. I am so excited to enter this new chapter in my life, surrounded by family I love, a supportive team around me and with music I’ve worked super hard on and am so excited and proud to reveal to you later in the year. And now we’re going to have a little baby to enjoy this experience with us along the way!”
She goes on to say that her new music will be a while off as a result of the pregnancy but “it’ll be worth the wait!”
