Former CATATONIA frontwoman Cerys Matthews is pregnant with her third child at the age of 40.
The Welsh singer already has two kids with ex-husband Seth Riddle, who she split from in 2007 after four years of marriage.
She began a romance with her long-term manager Steve Abbott, 49, in February (09) and the couple is now expecting their first child together.
A source tells WalesOnline, "Cerys and Steve are delighted - they could not be happier. They wanted to keep the situation under wraps until they were certain everything was going smoothly."
Matthews is mum to Glenys Pearl, five, and Johnny Jones, three.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
