'Thrilled' Amanda Holden announces secret pregnancy

Monday January 3, 2011

Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden will be expanding her family in 2011.

The 39-year-old has revealed she is pregnant with her second child – a little boy due in March.

Amanda took to her Twitter page to share the big news, telling fans: "Just to let you know. I am 6 months pregnant with a baby boy!!

"Have had to keep it quiet until now!"

A statement from her publicist said Amanda – pictured still looking petite at the end of November - and husband Chris Hughes, 37, are "absolutely thrilled".

News of the pregnancy is particularly heart warming since the former Cutting It actress has also revealed she suffered a miscarriage last year.

Writing on her website, Amanda revealed her secret heartache, explaining she waited so long to share the "very happy news" because "they needed to get the all clear from the doctor".

The couple – who wed in December 2008 – are already parents to Alexa, known as Lexi, who will be five later on this month.
