Troubled singer Whitney Houston is reportedly pregnant at the age of 40 with her second child with husband Bobby Brown.

The I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU singer is three months pregnant, according to British newspaper the DAILY STAR - which claims Houston is due to give birth at Christmas (04).

A source says, "Bobby and Whitney have had their problems with drugs and also with each other, but they've really worked to overcome them.

"Many of Whitney's closest friends are saying her healthier complexion and the extra weight she's carrying are because she's several months pregnant.

"It's the best thing that could happen to them as a couple."

Houston and Brown already have a daughter together - 11-year-old BOBBI KRISTINA.
