The former S Club 7 singer, who married Mr Bourne last year, is due to give birth in November.

A spokesman for the couple said: "We are delighted to announce that Rachel Stevens and her husband Alex are expecting their first baby later this year. The happy news comes just a few months before the couple celebrate their first wedding anniversary."

Ms Stevens, who was married by Rabbi Geoffrey Hyman, minister of Ilford Synagogue, recently spoke in a magazine interview about her desire for a big family.
