Atomic Kitten's Natasha Hamilton and 5ive singer Ritchie Neville are expecting a baby together.

Loved up Natasha and Ritchie began dating after reconnecting on TV show The Big Reunion last year, where friendship turned to romance, and now they're preparing to start a family together.

A thrilled Ritchie tweeted: "A massive blessing has been given to me. I will be a father this year. It's a total honour and I can't wait."

After being inundated with congratulatory tweets from fans, he added: "Thank you everyone for your kind messages and support. We are thrilled about the pregnancy."

It will be the first child for Ritchie, 34, and the fourth for Natasha, 31. Natasha is already mum to sons Josh, 11, Harry, eight, and Alfie, three, from previous relationships.

Two days before sharing their happy news, Ritchie had taken to Twitter to celebrate Mother's Day, mentioning Natasha in his tweet.

"Happy Mother's Day to my mum, @NatashaOfficial and all mothers out there, all of you do a great job and you only ever get one," he wrote.

Natasha told Reveal earlier this year she'd endured a difficult split from ex-husband Riad Erraji, the father of her son Alfie, and was now looking forward to a happy and successful 2014.

"The split last year was so tough, but now I am just looking after my family and everything is going well with Ritchie, so hopefully 2014 will be a great year."

Well, it's off to a pretty good start!
