Natasha Hamilton is having a baby girl.
The former Atomic Kitten singer - who already has sons, Josh, 11, with nightclub owner Fran Cosgrave, Harry, 9, with dancer Gavin Hatcher and Alfie, 3, with ex-husband Riad Erraji - has revealed she is expecting a baby girl with '5ive's' Ritchie Neville.
She said: "We did it ... we made a girl!
"Little girls have been so on my radar, I see them with pigtails and frilly socks with their mums and I still can't believe I'm having a mini-me!"
The 'Whole Again' singer, 31 - who became romantically involved with Ritchie during the filming of ITV's reality show 'The Big Reunion' last year - even hinted that an engagement may soon be on the cards for the pair.
Speaking in the new issue of OK! magazine, she said: "I'm just waiting for the wedding ring now, to be honest."
Ritchie, 34, also spoke about his excitement at hearing the news but confessed he's worried about becoming an over-protective father.
He said: "I was shell-shocked and like, 'Oh s**t, I'm going to have to be a protective dad. What if she brings and idiot back when she's 18?'
"A boy was going to be a lot easier - what am I meant to do with a girl?"
Natasha - who announced her pregnancy just last month - has also revealed she suffers from a severe anxiety disorder which was recently exacerbated when she feared she had gone into premature labour.
She said: "I was in so much pain, my belly was tightening. It was frightening - water infections can trigger premature labour - but luckily I caught it just in time."
