Michelle McManus, the former Pop Idol winner, has revealed that she is expecting her second child, after the birth of her son Harry in 2020.
The 41-year-old singer, who won Pop Idol in 2003, announced her good news on Twitter on Monday with a snapshot of her delightedly patting her expanding baby tummy.
Michelle gave birth to her first child, Harry, who is now 21 months old, in February of last year.
Her husband, Jeff Nimmo, is shown holding their son, Harry, as they announce the surprise that he will become a big brother – however we don’t know whether it will be to a baby sister or brother since the gender has yet to be disclosed.
‘Harry and Mummy, Daddy, and bump are playing peekaboo. ‘Baby Nimmo no2 expected early 2022,’ the overjoyed soon-to-be mother of two captioned the snap, adding that the trio is looking forward to being a family of four.
After two years of courtship, Michelle married her husband Jeff in her home country of Scotland on September 23, 2017.
The pair married in Mallaig, Lochaber, surrounded by relatives and friends. In May 2016, they got engaged while on vacation in Tenerife.
In an interview with the Daily Record at the time, she spoke about the romantic proposal.
‘The sun was shining, the drinks were flowing, and the love of my life proposed to me,’ she recalled. ‘I’ve never been happy in my life.’ I feel as though I’m walking on air. It’s all because I’ve found a wonderful man and we’re planning to marry. I believe a part of me worried whether that would ever happen to me.’
