S Club 7's Tina Barrett is pregnant

S Club 7's Tina Barrett is pregnant.

The 39-year-old singer and her boyfriend Paul, who have been dating for three years, are set to welcome their first child into the world on June 19.

The brunette beauty explained: "I have friends who've tried for years to get pregnant but we conceived within three months of trying. I know it sounds silly but it did take us by surprise - we thought it would take longer."

The couple - who first met in 2012 on the set of Russell Grant's charity musical video for 'The Clapping Song' - have decided to find out what they're expecting but want to keep it a secret until they welcome their little one properly.

Tina said: "When the nurse told us what we were having, I burst into tears. I didn't mind if we had a girl or a boy but I was so overcome with emotion that I couldn't help myself."

And, although she's yet to hit the six-month mark, the brunette beauty has already decided she doesn't want a home birth as she'd rather have an army of doctors around her for the birth.

She told the new UK issue of OK! magazine: "A home birth isn't for me. I'd rather the security of being surrounded by medical professionals. I'll definitely be having drugs, too - none of this natural stuff for me. I like the idea of a labour-themed play list. We could play songs like S Club 7's 'Reach For the Stars'."
