Pennyworth star and singer Paloma Faith has announced she's pregnant with her second child after six rounds of IVF.
Paloma took to Instagram on Thursday (September 24) to share the happy news, and also open up about her "struggle to get here".
In the post, the singer-actress explained that she is "high risk in pregnancy" while also touching on her "traumatic" first birth.
Alongside an image of herself, she wrote: "It is with extreme pleasure I announce I am pregnant. I am going to be releasing new music at this time and wanted to feel free in my body as it changes before all our eyes!
"I love my job and can't wait for you all to hear my 5th album and I will be out and about playing as much as this crazy time will allow (also a tour next year)."
She continued: "I am not a skinny pregnant person and I am also high risk in pregnancy so would like to ask the media not to run after me ate get unflattering shots as anxiety is detrimental to me and my baby.
"I had a very traumatic first birth and I am also prone to postpartum depression."
"Being a mother is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me but I will swell up and I won't 'glow'! I intend to be very real about this with you all!" she added.
"To all the other pregnant women out there who are as in love with their babies as me but simultaneously shitting themselves, let's do this."
