CHER Lloyd is pregnant with her first baby.
The X Factor star announced the news in an Instagram post today along with a snap of her baby bump.
She wrote: "I am beyond thrilled to inform you all that my husband Craig (Monk)and I are also expecting our first child in May!!!
"We are absolutely over the moon to share this news with you all."
Cher also revealed she's been working on new music which will be released later in 2018.
She shared: "I am so excited to enter this new chapter in my life, surrounded by family I love, a supportive team around me and with music I’ve worked super hard on and am so excited and proud to reveal to you later in the year.
"And now we're going to have a little baby to enjoy this experience with us along the way!
"Thank you all for being so patient, as you now know, I’ve been a busy little bee but I promise it’ll be worth the wait!"
Cher, 24, finished fourth in the seventh series of the X Factor and kicked off her solo career with single Swagger Jagger and debut album Sticks and Stones.
However, she hasn't released any new music since 2014's Sorry I'm Late.
In her post, she apologised for being "quiet for a while."
She wrote: "I wanted to take this opportunity to bring you all up to speed on what I’ve been up to over the last year.
"I decided to take some time away from the public eye to focus on what really matters and get back to what I truly love doing.
"As you all know, making music and singing is where it all began for me, it’s what makes me truly happy, and I wanted to get back to that happy place once again, enter the studio and focus on simply making great music for you all."
