Rochelle Humes is going to turn her unborn baby's placenta into pills or a smoothie.

The Saturdays singer is expecting her second child with her former JLS singer husband Marvin Humes and has shared with her 1.1 million followers that she is going to follow in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian West by trying out the alternative method of saving her after-birth, by having it freeze-dried and turned into pills or turned into a liquid so she can drink it.

The 27-year-old star wrote on the micro-blogging site: ''Has anyone tried a placenta smoothie or placenta pills after birth? I'm intrigued ... I think I might give it a go. I'll let you know how I get on, have read so many good reviews and health benefits ...''

The brunette beauty - who also shares three-year-old daughter Alaia-Mai with the 31-year-old presenter - suffered from terrible morning sickness for the first three months of her pregnancy.

Rochelle and Marvin managed to keep the news she is expecting under wraps until she got to six months but there were times at the start of her pregnancy when she wished people did know because she felt so unwell.

In November last year, she said: ''The first three months I felt horrendous but no one offers you a seat because they don't know, but now I'm six months I feel great.''

Speaking about keeping her baby news secret, she added: ''It was just super-close people that knew. The first time I found out I was pregnant unfortunately we got papped coming out of a scan which was early on, so I had that taken away from me, so this time I was like, I'm gonna be in control of this and keep it quiet as long as possible.' We did really well, I now know we've got really good friends, because although they love a gossip they actually kept their mouths shut so I'm impressed.''

Rochelle had to go public with her news because she and Marvin were part of the hosting team for BBC charity telethon 'Children In Need' and her stylist told her that she wouldn't be able to hide her bump on television.
