Sam Bailey is pregnant.

The 2013 'X Factor' winner discovered she was expecting her third child after taking a pregnancy test in an ASDA supermarket and couldn't wait to tell her husband Craig.

The former prison officer told The Sun newspaper: "I went and did it in the toilet while he was getting all the food.

"I came out and went, 'Yep - I'm pregnant'. It wasn't planned."

Sam, who is ten weeks pregnant, has had to delay her tour, which was planned for October, and feared her management would be disappointed by the news.

She said: "When I got into the car I was really upset because I thought I'd let everyone at my management and the record label down.

"But they were really good about it. I was going to go on tour solo at the end of October - but I have to move it until January."

The songbird, who also has daughter Brooke, eight, and son Tommy, five, with Craig, 40, insists despite their initial shock, her and her husband are excited about the pregnancy.

She said: "He thinks it's a New Year's Eve baby and he could be right. I've always wanted three kids.

"Obviously I'm getting bigger. I didn't want people to think I'd just got far. That would make me feel insecure again."

Sam, who will release her debut album 'The Power Of Love' on March 24, revealed one of the first people she told was 'X Factor' mentor Sharon Osbourne.

She said: "I'm close to Sharon. We speak quite a lot. She's my confidante and has known about the pregnancy. She's been great."

The star also thinks she could give TV boss Simon Cowell a few tips, after his girlfriend gave birth to their first child, Eric, on Valentine's Day (14.02.14).

She quipped: "I hope I'll see him soon - I can teach him how to change a nappy."
