Sophie Ellis-Bextor showed off her blossoming baby bump in London this week



The Murder on the Dance Floor singer sparked pregnancy rumours earlier in the month with a tiny bump, but waited to confirm the news on Twitter. "Hello all. Been finding it a bit nice-but-strange to be congratulated on a pregnancy I haven't actually announced yet…" Sophie wrote.

The mum-of-three then shared a photo of husband Richard pointing a finger at her stomach, asking: "What do you think, @thefeeling R? Is there a baby in there?"

Richard replied, saying; "Yes there is!", leaving Sophie to confirm the news with a final tweet.

"Ah ok, cool! Mystery solved. Baby in autumn. Lovely! As you were. Xx."

Sophie and Richard have been married for 10 years, and have three children together



Sophie and Richard celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary in June. The couple are already parents to three boys – Sonny, 11, Kit, six, and three-year-old Ray.

The star, who released her fifth studio album, Wanderlust, last year, has previously said that having children has helped her career. "It's made me a better performer, a better artist, a happier person," she told the Independent. "I wouldn't have done half the things I've done if I hadn't become a mum."

Her marriage is equally as important. "Richard is so kind and funny, he is a good man," Sophie told HELLO! Online. "We always make time for ourselves and go on date nights. It's good to sometimes be a bit selfish and ultimately the kids are happy when we're happy."
