Singer and former Leeds student Paloma Faith has announced that she is pregnant with her first child.
The star, 35, who studied at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds, said that she was “nervous and excited about being a mum” and she would be taking time off from her music and TV career.
“I am so delighted to tell you I am going to take a short while off to have a baby.
“I have spent my whole life wanting to be a mother and now the time has come for me to do so. I feel so lucky,” she wrote on her Facebook page.
The Voice coach, who also worked as a barmaid at Milo in Leeds before she was famous, recently spoke about wanting to start a family with her long-term French artist boyfriend Leyman Lahcine.
