Natalie Imbruglia has tucked an unexpected pregnancy reveal into a new album announcement on Instagram – and the surprise news has been met with much delight.
“I’m expecting my first child”
Natalie posted about her new record deal with BMG yesterday and towards the end of the post, she noted that this was not the only big news in her life.
Sharing a photo of herself post-contract-signing and another of herself snuggling her second-trimester bump, she explained that her bub was due in the northern hemisphere’s Autumn. That’s in just a couple of months!
“No I haven’t swallowed a watermelon,” Natalie quipped on Insta. “I’m expecting my first child this 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,” she continued.
“I won’t be saying anything more on that publicly. I’m so excited about this next adventure … a new album and I’m going to be a mum!”
MORE Stages of Pregnancy
(This “first child” reveal might just indicate there are more babies planned for the future, but we’re just guessing at that.)
