Atomic Kitten Natasha Hamilton Confirms Pregnancy With 5ive’s Ritchie Neville

Former Atomic Kitten Natasha Hamilton has confirmed that she is three months pregnant with partner Ritchie Neville’s baby and says it is a ‘complete miracle’ she was able to conceive.

The singer, 31, who met 5ive’s Ritchie while filming ITV’s The Big Reunion last year, told OK! magazine that she didn’t think she would be able to get pregnant again.

‘It’s a complete miracle because I had cysts on my ovaries last year and the specialists nearly had to remove them,’ she explained.

But Ritchie, 34, suspected they might be welcoming a new addition to the family after her smell changed.

‘We were in Austria when I was doing The Jump and we were cuddling and her neck smelt of newborn babies! I’d smelt that before and the person was pregnant,’ he said.

While Natasha has three children from previous relationships – Josh, 11; Harry, nine, and three-year-old Alfie – he or she will be Ritchie’s firstborn.

‘This is my first child so I'd never seen a scan and suddenly our baby was on the screen and I swore – it was a proper mindblower!’ he added.

The pair are not planning on getting married before the baby arrives but are happy their child will give them a deeper sort of connection.

‘Natasha’s stuck with me forever now, no matter what happens.’

The celebrity parents have been keeping their news schtum for a while, although there was a tiny hint of their changed circumstances when on Mother’s Day Ritchie tweeted,

Congratulations, both!
