X Factor’s Sam Bailey’s shock pregnancy news

Discovered she was pregnant in toilet at Asda


X Factor winner Sam Bailey has announced she’s pregnant.


The prison officer turned singer is expecting her third child with husband Craig.

And the mum-of-2 revealed she found out about her unplanned pregnancy in the toilets at Asda.

Sam told The Sun: “I went and did it in the toilet while he was getting all the food.

“I came out and went, ‘Yep, I’m pregnant’. It wasn’t planned.”

The 36-year-old admitted she was worried how her record label would take the news.

She said: “I was really upset because I thought I’d let everyone at my management and the record label down. 

“But they were really good about it. I was going to go on tour solo at the end of October, but I have managed to move it until January.”

Sam is currently touring with her fellow X Factor contestants and last night performed a gig in Sheffield. 

But Sam, who is now 10 weeks pregnant, has made sure to let her mentor Sharon Osbourne know about her news.

She said: “I’m close to Sharon. We speak quite a lot. She’s my confidante and has known about the pregnancy. She’s been great.”

So now her management and work is settled, Sam took to Twitter to share the first snap of the scan of her baby. 

She tweeted: “Hey everyone…… Meet peanut!!! :-)”

Congratulations Sam!
