R+B beauty Jamelia doesn't care if her singing career ends when she gives birth to her second child in October (05) - because motherhood means more to her than chart success.

The SUPERSTAR singer announced last month (APR05) she is three months pregnant with her first child with soccer star boyfriend DARREN BYFIELD.

And although she has no plans to retreat from the limelight as she did when her four-year-old daughter TEJA was born, she would have no regrets if her new arrival put an end to her music stardom.

She explains, "Being a mother is far more important than any gold record. If it's all over for me as a chart star then so be it."
