Katie Waissel has confirmed she’s pregnant with her first child.

The singer – who found fame alongside fellow expectant mother Cher Lloyd on the seventh series of The X factor in 2010 – will welcome the baby later this year with boyfriend Andy Speer.

‘So today is officially the day that I get to share the greatest blessings on earth with you! For those who have been such a huge part of my journey over the years, you will know that life certainly hasn’t always thrown me roses however it has honestly been perfectly imperfect. The amazing thing is, life threw me all the tools I could possibly need to build and craft such an incredible future and now I can say this rose bush has blossomed into such beautiful flowers,’ she began on Instagram.

‘You have watched me at my most vulnerable, and my most fearless, through some incredibly tough times and followed me right by my side through to the shining light at the end of some of the darkest tunnels. And now, you get to witness the greatest blessing life could bestow upon another human being. The gift of life! Andy and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting!’
