X Factor contestant Sese Foster has confirmed she is pregnant, days before the live shows start.
The 22-year-old mother-of-one, who is one third of Gary Barlow's girl group Miss Dynamix, said she is almost five months pregnant and is due to give birth at the end of January 2014.
"I found out I was pregnant at about three-and-a-half months, and I'm now at the 22 week stage," she told the Daily Mirror.
Sese revealed Take That frontman Gary and her bandmates - Jeanette Akua and Rielle Carrington - have been very supportive.
"My new bandmates have been brilliant. They have been so supportive and really positive. They're already playing the auntie roles perfectly, feeding me up and making sure I eat healthily," she said.
"He (Gary) was over the moon. He talked to me about his children and said any advice I need, he's there for me."
She continued: "I feel doubly blessed. I've got really exciting times ahead with the girls in the band and finding out about the baby has been like the cherry on the cake. 2014 will be a year to remember."
Jeanette added: "I've already made sure Sese has me and Rielle down as godmothers. We've gone from a three-piece band to a three-and-a-half-piece band."
A show source said: "We were delighted to hear Sese's news. She's being well looked after and her rehearsals are being scheduled carefully to ensure she has plenty of time to rest. All of the contestants have been really supportive towards her and her two bandmates have even joked that they're looking forward to welcoming a fourth member to the band soon."
Miss Dynamix are one of three groups in Gary's category, with Rough Copy and Kingsland Road as the other acts.
