Sophie Ellis Bextor posted a message on her official message board to announce her pregnancy with boyfriend Richard Jones. Sophie said:
Hello everyone! I am so excited to let you know I am having a baby next year.
I am due in June and myself and Richard are really excited. I’m sorry I couldn’t let you know before it was published, but it came out a day early. Anyway, this is a really good thing and I’m sure you’re all right behind me. I’ll keep you up to date with how things are going…
I am still planning to keep working up until spring and obviously am intending to keep working once the tot is here but I guess this will take priority over all else. How lovely for me.
