Taking to Instagram, the 33-year-old singer revealed her baby bump in a video captioned “Due June 2022.”

She went on to star in West End Musicals such as The Bodyguard, Chicago and Sister Act: The Musical.

Alexandra and Darren began dating in April 2021.

A source previously told The Sun that “things are going really well” between the new couple.

“It’s early days and Alexandra has deliberately taken things incredibly slowly,” the insider revealed.

“They’ve had a series of dates but not been able to meet up as much as they would have wanted due to her hectic work schedule and the Covid restrictions.”

The source continued: “Alexandra was extremely reluctant to date another footballer, but Darren is the sweetest, most down-to-earth guy — and incredibly charming.”

“Things are going really well. They’re super-happy seeing each other when they can, and she’s now helping him redecorate his mansion.”

“She’s making his bachelor pad more homely and adding a much-needed feminine touch.”
