Frankie Bridge is pregnant with her second child. The Saturdays singer and husband Wayne are expecting a little brother or sister for 15-month-old Parker.
The couple “couldn’t be happier” but Frankie is suffering from extreme morning sickness so has had to pull out of the Strictly Come Dancing UK tour she was due to start next week.
“So excited to tell you that Wayne and I are expecting another baby later this year,” she tweeted. “We can’t wait for Parker to have a little brother or sister. Sadly I’m really unwell with my pregnancy and won’t be able to take part in the Strictly tour. I’m SO sorry. I was so looking forward to it.”
Frankie added in a statement that it’s “very early days, but we couldn’t be happier and Parker will make a wonderful big brother.”
Frankie appears to be suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum – the same severe morning sickness that Kate Middleton has had during both of her pregnancies. “I’m devastated that I’m missing out, as I loved Strictly so much and was so looking forward to joining everyone again in all those fabulous arenas. Thanks for the warm messages I’ve already received, they are really appreciated,” she said.
Although Frankie won’t be waltzing her way around arenas any time soon, her representatives insist her pregnancy won’t affect The Saturdays. “It will be business as usual for The Saturdays,” they said in a statement. “The band will continue together as they always have through pregnancies.”
And her bandmates couldn’t be happier for Frankie – Molly King even joked Frankie should be watching the box instead of making babies! “Haven’t you two got a TV @FrankieTheSats!! So so happy for you, Wayney and little Parker! Xxx,” Molly tweeted.
