Irish ‘The Saturdays‘ singer Una Healy is expecting her first child with rugby player boyfriend Ben Foden.
She told the press last night: “I’m really happy! It was totally unexpected, but me and Ben are really excited.”
She wrote on Twitter about how the pregnancy will not prevent her from joining the rest of the girls on their first ever arena tour this December, by which time Una will be at least 6 months along.
“Yes the news is true! @ben_foden and I are expecting a baby BenUna! We are both very excited. I am overwhelmed by all of your wonderfully positive and kind well wishes. Thank you all soooo much. So much love. And just to reassure all Saturdays fans its all systems go and I will be remaining fully committed to the band and our Tour in December. How lucky will the little baby be with 4 gorgeous Aunties @FrankieTheSats @MollieTheSats @RochelleTheSats @vanessawhite see you soon,” she wrote on her official Twitter page.
Frankie Sandford responded: “We’re so excited about our first mini Sats member! He or she is gonna be so spoiled by the most over protective aunties ever!!! x”
Rochelle seemed to have been struggling not to let the cat out of the bag: “Wow that was the hardest secret I’ve ever had to keep. So excited and happy for Una to have a baby! I’m gonna be an aunty woo :)”
The easily-excitable Mollie King added: “Congrats to our beauty Una Healy and Ben Foden!! The first of many Sats babies! So so excited for u both. Bring on the babysitting! Mwah! x”
Party girl Vanessa White tweeted: “Soo excited about Una Healy having a lil buba what an amazing mum she will be! Can’t wait xx.”
