We’ve noticed that Sophie Ellis Bextor has been looking particularly glowing and gorgeous recently, and it turns out it’s not just down to all that Rimmel make-up she’s currently promoting – she’s pregnant with her second child. We spotted some potential bump-age in this shot of the singer taken just today, and now it’s been confirmed by Sophie herself that she and her partner – Richard Jones from The Feeling– will be welcoming baby number two next Spring. She shared the happy news just this afternoon on her website:
Subject: Two new releases this year…
greetings guys and girls
i hope you are all well.
i am having a very good time of it as of late... the new single, Sophia Loren, is featured in the Rimmel sexy curves mascara advert and will be released early next year which is wonderful. thank you for all the positive feedback to the launch of the rimmel adverts. i am proud and flattered to be taking part.
i'll then be having a break around march april as i am very happy to share with you all the news that i am having another baby. i am due at the beginning of april and naturally the ellis-bextor-joneses are thrilled that sonny will soon have a little brother or sister.
i'll then be back with another single and the fourth album which is coming along very nicely. expected to be released around july august.
so i hope you're feeling good about all this news.. looks like 2009 and is going to be an exciting year (and busy!) for me. i can't wait!
as ever, thank you for being such a warm and supportive bunch.
