She is due to welcome her second child later this year, and it seems pregnancy is suiting Alesha Dixon perfectly! The Britain's Got Talent judge, 40, stunned her Instagram followers after posing in a leaf-printed bikini, whilst showing off her blossoming baby bump. She captioned the striking makeup-free pictures, which were taken by her partner Azuka Ononye, with the words: "I have a lot to smile about lately! No makeup, no filters, just me and baby."

Alesha and Azuka, who reportedly married in a secret ceremony in 2017, are already doting parents to five-year-old daughter Azura. The former singer revealed her second pregnancy live on-air during the final round of BGT in May. "Over the moon, yes," she told the audience. "Lovely place to celebrate it."

Last year, Alesha admitted her fears that she was "too old" to have another baby. In an interview with You magazine back in April 2018, she explained: "I don't know whether it will happen given my age but I adore the idea of a large family and I hope I will be lucky." The star added: "The love I feel for Azura is so pure and unconditional. The main thing is to enjoy her in the present and be philosophical about the future, because what will be will be."
