“I’m so happy to announce that I now have a collection of amazing new songs (that I cannot wait to share with you all!), but also, there’s another reason why I’m writing to you today and that’s because I am beyond thrilled to inform you all that my husband Craig and I are also expecting our first child in May!!!” she captioned the post.

“We are absolutely over the moon to share this news with you all,” added the mom-to-be, 24. “I am so excited to enter this new chapter in my life, surrounded by family I love, a supportive team around me and with music I’ve worked super hard on and am so excited and proud to reveal to you later in the year.”

Lloyd and Monk began dating in 2011 after he reportedly fitted her for hair extensions. They confirmed their engagement about nine months later, in January 2012.
