Ellis-Bextor expecting fourth baby
Singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor is pregnant with her fourth child.
The star sparked questions about whether she was expecting or not after stepping out at Lorraine's High Street Fashion Awards earlier in the week, sporting what looked like a baby bump.
She took to Twitter to confirm the happy news.
Ellis-Bextor started off a series of tweets by writing: "Hello all. Been finding it a bit nice-but-strange to be congratulated on a pregnancy I haven't actually announced yet...."
She then included her husband, The Feeling's bassist Richard Jones, in the Social Media banter by posting a picture of a finger pointing at her stomach, with a heart in the background, asking the question: "What do you think, @thefeeling R? Is there a baby in there?"
Jones replied saying: "Yes, there is!".
She then confirmed the couple's new baby will be arriving in the autumn, writing: " Ah ok, cool! Mystery solved. Baby in autumn. Lovely! As you were."
The couple have three boys: Sonny, Ray and Kit.
