Frankie Sandford – best known for her time in The Saturdays – is expecting a baby with her footballer fiancé, Wayne Bridge. She took to twitter to let her fans know the good news.

“Some big news from me today!” she tweeted, perhaps forgetting about Wayne. “Wayne and I are having a baby. We are both SO happy and can't wait for his or hers arrival!” Oh no, look, she remembered she has a fiancé. There’ll be no trouble with putting this kid through school; Bridge is still under contract at Manchester City, despite playing on loan at Brighton this season. This means he picks up a (reported) cool £92k a week. “So happy and excited for our @FrankieTheSats and Wayne's baby news!! X'” said her band mate Una Healy. The Saturdays' official Twitter page added: “Lots and lots of love to @FrankieTheSats and Wayne on their big news!! The Sats family is growing and we are SO thrilled for them! Xx”

The news comes soon after the announcement her and the former England left back are to be married. Posting a picture of her diamond ring on Twitter in early April, the 24-year-old wrote: “Guess what?!!!” She told MailOnline at the time: “Wayne proposed to me on Saturday evening and I said yes. We are both very happy.” This will be a welcome distraction for Frankie, who has suffered a long and public battle with depression. Things are looking up though!
