Ritchie Neville claims he knew his girlfriend Natasha Hamilton was pregnant before she had found out she was expecting because her body smelt different to normal

Ritchie Neville could smell that his girlfriend Natasha Hamilton was pregnant.

The 5ive singer and the Atomic Kitten star - who fell in love after appearing on ITV2 show 'The Big Reunion' last year - are expecting their first child together and before they knew Natasha was expecting, Ritchie sensed she was carrying a baby.

During a joint interview on ITV show 'Lorraine' this morning (23.04.14), he said: "I've got a little theory because I leant in [to kiss her] and I said, 'Have you used any baby lotion or something?' And she said, 'No why would I use that?' I said, 'Just in here [your neck] you smell like newborn babies.' She looked at me and I looked at her and said, 'You're not are you, you couldn't be [pregnant]?' It turned out she was."

Natasha has described her pregnancy as a "miracle" because she had numerous health issues which were affecting her ovaries in 2013 which could have resulted in her becoming infertile.

The 'Whole Again' hitmaker - who is already a mother to three sons, Alfie, Harry and Josh - revealed: "I had a lot of health issues last year with my ovaries and ended up in hospital. I was really poorly, I had a ruptured cyst and lots of pain and complications so the doctor spoke to me and said I may have to have my ovaries removed at some point which was quite a shock. In my head, I thought maybe that's why I had children young because in later life I was going to have health issues so it was just not on the radar, we weren't planning a baby and then when Rich was in Austria in January we had a little cuddle and..."

The baby will be Ritchie's first child and he insists his whole outlook on life has changed since he found out he is going to be a father.

He said: "It definitely is a life changer, even just on perspectives on the world and stuff, the world's a different place all of a sudden."


The late 90s lad band (now, confusingly, with just three members, Scott, Ritchie and Sean, remaining) use their rekindled fame from The Big Reunion TV series to hawk their old tunes.
