Alexandra Burke has announced she's pregnant with her second baby.

The pop star, 34, surprised fans with her exciting news on Instagram on Tuesday (4 April), writing: “We are so excited to do this all again,” alongside pictures from a maternity shoot from her first pregnancy.

Alexandra and her boyfriend, footballer Darren Randolph welcomed their first child nine months ago.

They have chosen not to reveal the the little one’s name or gender and the ‘Bad Boys’ singer affectionately calls her baby Grape on social media.

Last month, Alexandra had her first Mother’s Day as a mum and shared how ‘blessed’ she felt in a heartwarming Instagram post.

The star wrote: “My first Mother’s Day as your mama… Feeling very blessed. Can’t thank the hubby enough for making me feel so special and loved.

“My little baby Grape - thank you for making me a better person. For making me the best version of myself and showing up in ways I thought I never could… I am so lucky to be your mum.”

She also paid tribute to her own mum, the late British soul singer, Melissa Bell, who passed away in 2017.

“To my mummy. Happy heavenly Mother’s Day. I’m thinking of you always and I hope I’m making you proud. I wish you were here to see this bundle of joy who is helping to heal my heart everyday.”

The chart-topping singer recent said she only sees her boyfriend Darren twice a week, which means she is often left alone to raise their baby.

Darren joined Bournemouth in January after leaving West Ham United.

Although Alexandra said it’s ‘tricky’ with her partner living and working away, she has learned how to ‘adapt’ after welcoming her first baby in July last year.

She told Mail Online: "Whether it's about children or your life in general, women just adapt. No shade to men, I think men are great… but women, oh my God we make milk for crying out loud!

"He comes home as and when he can which is roughly maybe twice a week at the most. I don't like him driving too much, I sound like a bit of a mum, but I don't like him driving when he's training, and he's exhausted.

She continued: "It isn't terrible because it's only two hours away and I love Bournemouth and where he's staying. It would be worse if he was five away hours.

"We make it work and it's not forever and all I care about is supporting his career and standing by him when he makes these decisions.'
