Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher's girlfriend has today confirmed that she is three months pregnant.

Although Sara MacDonald's figure did nothing to suggest she was with child at last week's NME awards, rumours started when she steered clear of alcoholic drinks.

A spokesperson for Oasis has now confirmed that the couple, who have been together for the past seven years, are expecting their first child together.

Gallagher, 39, already has a seven-year-old daughter from his marriage with Meg Matthews, which officially ended in January 2001.

A source told the Sun that "Noel and Sara are really, really happy and excited".

"This is something they both wanted but they kept the news to themselves until they were sure everything was OK with the baby," the source went on to tell the tabloid

"Neither of them have ever wanted to get married but it felt like the right time to start a family together."
