The 44-year-old singer has been dogged by baby rumours for months and speculation reached fever pitch over the weekend (05-06Dec15), when she was photographed sporting a bulging belly while onstage in Miami, Florida.

Now Paulina has revealed the news is true in a sweet photoshoot for Hola! magazine, in which she is pictured kissing her five-year-old son Andrea as he sits on the shoulders of her boyfriend, Gerardo Bazua.

In the accompanying interview, the mother-to-be admits the pregnancy was "unexpected", but adds, "I've always wanted to have more kids. When I found out I was going to be a mum again, I felt I was a very lucky woman.

"It is wonderful to feel life in you. I enjoy pregnancy in every single way."

The child will be her first with singer Gerardo, a former contestant on the Mexican version of The Voice, on which she served as a mentor from 2012 to 2013.

Paulina divorced Andrea's father, Nicolas Vallejo-Nagera, in 2013, after eight years of marriage.
