Bobby Brown's wife is pregnant.

The 'My Prerogative' hitmaker is said to be in ''emotional turmoil'' as he battles between his happiness at having a child with wife Alicia Etheredge - who TMZ reports is four months into her pregnancy - while sitting at the bedside of his 21-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, who was hospitalised at the weekend after she was found facedown in the bathtub of her home in Atlanta.

The 46-year-old singer - who, as well as Bobby Kristina, has three other children from previous relationships and five-year-old Cassius with his wife - hadn't told his good news to many people but has been forced to speak out as Alicia's condition has been clear to see while they visit Bobbi at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

Despite the stressful situation, Alicia - who married the singer in 2012- is said to be handling things well, even though there is apparently a feud brewing between her husband and Bobbi Kristina's relatives on her mother, the late Whitney Houston's side.

A source said: ''The Houston family is sick of the Brown family acting up, as they always do.''

It has previously been reported the aspiring actress has been placed in a medically-induced coma and has diminished brain function.

A statement from Bobby earlier this week read: ''Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honour our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support.''
