Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon is pregnant with her first child, her spokesperson has confirmed.
"Alesha Dixon and her partner Azuka Ononye are delighted to announce that they are expecting their first child later this year," her spokesperson confirmed to Digital Spy.
"Alesha and Azuka are looking forward to this happy chapter in their lives and would request privacy to enjoy this happy and most important event.
"Further details will be given at the appropriate time."
Alesha met Azuka in 2006. He was part of her backing team when she launched a solo career after the split of Mis-Teeq.
Friends say that Nigerian-born Azuka helped Alesha get over the heartache of her marriage to MC Harvey, who she divorced after learning of his infidelity.
Rumours of Alesha being pregnant have been swirling for several weeks now, after a source revealed that she recently made two toasts "drinking water instead of wine".
