LEEDS MP Rachel Reeves, the Shadow Minister for Work and Pensions, has announced she is expecting her second child.

The member of parliament for Leeds West, who already has an 18-month old daughter Anna with husband Nick Joicey, is due to give birth on June 15, just a month after the General Election.

Revealing the happy news exclusively to the Yorkshire Evening Post today, the 35-year old said she will carry on working up to the election on May 7, and plans to go on maternity leave just three weeks later. She plans to return to work just three months after the birth.

She said that when she goes on maternity leave, she hopes it will be as a serving Minister under a new Labour Government headed by Ed Miliband.

But she acknowledged “there’s a lot to be done” ahead of the hoped for double-delivery of good news.
