Surprise Pregnancy News For X Factor Winner Sam Bailey

The singer has announced that she’s expecting her third child with her husband

Congratulations to X Factor winner Sam Bailey, who’s revealed she’s pregnant. The singer shared her happy news via Twitter, by posting a photo of her first ultrasound scan.

The snap was uploaded to Sam’s Twitter account this morning, along with the caption, ‘Meet peanut!’.

The 36-year-old singer discovered she was pregnant after taking a pregnancy test in the toilet of an Asda supermarket.

‘I went in and did it while he was getting all the food,’ the former prison guard told The Sun. ‘I came out and went “Yep – I’m pregnant!” It wasn’t planned.’

Sam and her husband Craig, 40, are already parents to Tommy, eight, and daughter Brooke, five, and although the pregnancy came as a surprise, the couple are looking forward to their baby’s arrival.

A spokesperson for the singer told the Mail Online, ‘Sam and her family are absolutely delighted and cannot wait to welcome their new addition to the family.’
Sam’s pregnancy will mean her October tour plans need to be altered – which the singer was worried would upset her record label.

‘When I got into the car [after finding out she was pregnant] I was really upset because I thought I’d let everyone at my management and the record label down,’ said Sam. ‘But they were really good about it.’ The tour will now start in January 2015, giving her a few months maternity leave before getting back to work.
