The 44-year-old announced her pregnancy in July, writing that the pregnancy was something she had wanted for “a very long time”.

The news was easy to miss, nestled among a caption to a photo showing her and a group of unfamiliar faces celebrating her upcoming album.

But swipe left and there was another photo: of Natalie cradling her baby bump.

“I’m very happy to announce that I have just signed a record deal with BMG!! What an AMAZING team,” she captioned the photos.

“And as you can see from the pic… there is another announcement… (no, I haven’t swallowed a watermelon). I’m expecting my first child this [European] Autumn.”

“For those of you that know me, this has been something I have wanted for a very long time and I’m blessed that this is possible with the help of IVF and a sperm donor.”

Congratulations Natalie!
