Katherine Jenkins pregnant with second child

She gave birth to her first child in September 2015 – and now Katherine Jenkins is expecting a little brother for her two-year-old daughter Aaliyah.

The 37-year-old soprano took to her Twitter account today to reveal she and her husband Andrew Levitas are to become parents for the second time together.

Katherine tweeted a picture of Aaliyah wearing a pink cape with her back to the camera and above her head were the words: “Sidekick coming soon…”

She wrote in the caption: “Andrew and I are overjoyed that our family will be growing in 2018 with the addition of our second child – a baby brother for our little superhero Aaliyah!!! (sic)”

The couple’s happy news comes shortly after Katherine admitted she and Andrew were keen to have another baby.

She said: “We definitely want another child. There’s no ovulation charts on the wall or anything … not yet anyway … but that’s because I’m about to go on tour. But we hope we will be lucky enough to have a second child.”

Katherine’s daughter, Aaliyah, was born in 2015.

Katherine tied the knot to Andrew within a year of meeting him and while she insists she is usually “quite cautious”, she just knew he was Mr. Right.

She said: “It has been a whirlwind. I’m not a person who rushes into anything. I consider things and I’m actually quite cautious, especially with big decisions.

“But when you know, you know and with Andrew, I just knew straight away. He’s an amazing husband, an amazing dad and I just feel like I understand the reason for everything now.”
