Cher Lloyd announced she was pregnant and expecting her second child with husband Craig Monk.
The 29-year-old singer, who first found fame on The X Factor back in 2010, shared the joyous news on social media.
The Want U Back hitmaker, who is already a mum to Delilah-Rae Monk, uploaded a whole video of a pair of hands in front of the camera then removed to reveal a baby scan snap, the scan was also placed on a knitted baby outfit and matching hat.
‘Baby number 2, we can’t wait to meet you,’ she captioned the post.
Fans and friends rushed to the comment section to congratulate the happy couple, with one writing: ‘Congratulations!!! I hope you have a healthy pregnancy and a strong healthy baby! With all my love.’
‘This is very exciting 😍 congratulations so happy for you and your lovely family,’ another added.
Despite scoring a number one single with her debut Swagger Jagger, in 2020 Cher revealed she received a lot of hate, including getting bottles of urine thrown at her during her 2012 V Festival performance.
She also claimed that if she had a 16-year-old daughter, she wouldn’t let her do the show.
‘I spent most nights crying in hotel rooms – sure, they were fantastic five-star hotels, but I was so lonely,’ she told The Sun.
‘I didn’t trust anyone. I thought everyone was out to get me or wanted to take the pussy out of me and ruin whatever dream I had.’
She also credited her husband Craig, who she married in 2013, by helping her get over the hard times.
‘He came along and suddenly I had someone telling me it was going to be OK and I had to stop feeling angry and rise above it. Having someone there to help and guide me and also be the person to bring me happiness.’
