Singer Katherine Jenkins is pregnant with her first child - a baby girl.

The 34-year-old Welsh classical singer said that she and husband Andrew Levitas were “overjoyed” at the prospect of becoming parents this autumn.

Posting a picture of a pair of pink baby shoes on top of a framed photograph from her wedding, the mezzo-soprano told fans on Instagram: “Couldn’t be more excited to meet our little girl!”

She added in a statement: “We are overjoyed to be expecting our first child in the autumn.

“Starting a family and moving into this exciting phase of our lives is a blessing for which we are incredibly grateful. We eagerly await the arrival of our little girl!”

Jenkins has previously spoken about wanting to have children, saying: “Now I’m married, I do want kids. I really want a family.”

Katherine married US filmmaker and artist Levitas at Hampton Court Palace last September after a whirlwind romance.

Two months later, Jenkins declared that she was ready to be a mother.

The couple went public with their relationship when Levitas accompanied Jenkins to Buckingham Palace to collect her OBE in March last year.

They announced their engagement after six months of dating.

In 2014, the New York Times declared that Levitas “has the Midas touch”.

Jenkins was previously engaged to the Welsh TV presenter Gethin Jones. The pair dated for four years before eventually splitting up in 2011.
