Frankie Bridge is pregnant with her second child.

The Saturdays star - who already has 14-month-old Parker with her husband, retired footballer Wayne Bridge - confirmed the news on her official Twitter account.

She wrote: ''So excited to tell you that Wayne & I are expecting another baby later this year. We cant wait for Parker to have a little brother or sister (sic)''

The 25-year-old also revealed she hasn't been feeling too well and will have to miss the 'Strictly Come Dancing' tour, which is due to take place later this month.

She added: ''Sadly I'm really unwell with my pregnancy and won't be able to take part in the Strictly tour. I'm SO sorry. I was so looking forward to it. (sic)''

The 'What About Us' hitmaker - who reached the finals of the dancing competition but lost out to Caroline Flack and her dancing partner Pasha Kovalev - also released a statement, saying her and her husband were ''delighted'' by the news.

The statement read: ''Wayne and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting our second baby.

''It is very early days, but we couldn't be happier and Parker will make a wonderful big brother.''

Fans and friends alike have offered their congratulations to the singer, including her fellow bandmates, Una Foden and Vanessa White.

Una tweeted: ''Baby Bridge #2 is on the way and we couldn't be more excited!! Congrats @FrankieTheSats, Wayne and Parker! (sic)''.

Vanessa expressed her happiness too, writing: ''So happy and excited for @FrankieTheSats and Wayne on expecting baby number 2!!! Xxx (sic)''
