Sophie Ellis Bextor is expecting her fifth child

Congrats!

Sophie Ellis Bextor is expecting her fifth child.

The singer announced the happy news earlier today while speaking to Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2.

She was chatting about the forthcoming release of her new album, The Song Diaries, when she said: "The album will come out around the same time as my fifth infant because I’m having my fifth baby. Mental!"

... Which must mean that Sophie is fairly far along in her pregnancy because album is due out in a few months.

Mental, indeed.

Sophie and husband Richard Jones already have four children together - 13-year-old Sonny, nine-year-old Kit, five-year-old Ray, and three-year-old Jesse.

Their oldest, Sonny, was born just eight months after the pair started dating.

Richard, who is the bassist in UK band The Feeling, met the Murder On The Dancefloor singer while working with her on tour.

Sophie has said the pair don't know the sex of their baby yet.
