Michelle Heaton took to Twitter today to announce that she is pregnant with baby number two.

The Liberty X singer announced she is expecting her second kid with husband Hugh Hanley, and she can't wait for their 20-month-old daughter Faith to have a new brother or sister.

Michelle's good news comes after she had a double mastectomy last year after she was found to be carrying the BRCA2 cancer gene, meaning she had an 85 per cent chance of developing breast cancer and 40 per cent chance of developing ovarian cancer. Heaton previously said she wanted to have more children, but if she wasn't able to have more kids because of her medical problems then she was content with her 'healthy, beautiful baby' Faith.

She said: 'There's a lot to consider about ovary removal. It starts the menopause, which would obviously mean I couldn't have any more children. I have one healthy, beautiful baby, and if I never have another I know I'm lucky to have her - but I would love more if possible, so that will be a big decision.'
