Little Alaia-Mai is getting a brother or sister
And they’re about to begin the journey of parenthood for a second time, and Rochelle has spoken out for the first time about her pregnancy.
The former Saturdays star announced the surprise, happy news last week with a series of gorgeous photos in black and white, showing off her bare bump.
And she appeared on Friday’s (25th November) edition of Loose Women to talk all about it, telling the panellists how excited she and her JLS hubby were to become parents again. Yet it all had a somewhat rocky start:
‘The first three months I felt horrendous but no one offers you a seat because they don’t know, but now I’m six months I feel great!’
We bet she’s wearing her ‘baby on board’ badge with pride now! Later, she spoke about her decision to wait until she was relatively far along in her pregnancy to say anything about it – and she explained that when she was pregnant with first child Alaia-Mai, now 3, the story got out earlier than she anticipated.
‘It was just super-close people that knew. The first time I found out I was pregnant unfortunately we got papped coming out of a scan which was early on, so I had that taken away from me.
‘This time I was like, I’m gonna be in control of this and keep it quiet as long as possible.’
We don’t blame her! This time around, fans only got to see her full-on bump when she took on hosting duties at Children In Need, and that happened to be one of the motivations for them telling the world her news. She remarked: ‘I was trying on some dresses with my stylist for Children In Need, which was on Friday and I was trying them on that Wednesday or the Tuesday, and he was like, “Dude I think you’re going to have to say something.””
And now, everyone knows – and we couldn’t be happier! Wishing her all the best in her pregnancy!
