Leona and her husband Dennis – who married in 2019 in a wedding exclusively revealed in HELLO! – announced they were expecting a baby in March. “Can’t wait to meet you in the Summer,” the songwriter said on Instagram as she shared a first look at her baby bump.

Shortly after her gorgeous nuptials in Italy, Leona expressed her desire to have children and revealed she would like to adopt because of her mother’s experience growing up in a children’s home.

“I do want children, but Dennis and I have also talked about adopting,” she told Stella magazine. “My mum grew up in a children’s home. No one adopted her as a child, and I would very much like to adopt. But I’m still figuring things out. If it was up to my husband, we would have had kids yesterday.”

The 37-year-old singer, who won the third series of X Factor in 2006, married German-born creative director Dennis after ten years of dating.
