Singer Natalie Imbruglia, known for her 1997 single “Torn,” has a baby on the way!
On Wednesday, Imbruglia, 44, announced that she’s expecting her first child, with the help of in vitro fertilization and a sperm donor.
Along with posting a pic of her baby bump, Natalie wrote on Instagram, “No I haven’t swallowed a watermelon. I’m expecting my first child this Autumn. For those of you that know me, this has been something I have wanted for a very long time.”
As for her sperm donor, Natalie noted, “I won’t be saying anything more on that publicly.”
In 2017, Imbruglia was linked to photographer Matt Field, but he hasn’t appeared on her Instagram since last year. She was previously married to Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns, but they ended their marriage after five years in 2008. At the time, the couple told People magazine, “While we are very sad that our marriage has ended, we want to make it clear that our parting is amicable and we remain friends... Our career demands and our lives in different parts of the world have brought us to the point where unfortunately this difficult decision was necessary. We have simply grown apart.”
Natalie, who “just signed a record deal with BMG,” added, “I’m so excited about this next adventure … a new album and I’m going to be a mum!🎶🤰🏻🎉😍❤️✨.”
After the announcement, Spice Girls singer Mel C wrote, “Congratulations my love! Wonderful news all round. You’re gonna be an AMAZING Mummy and you’re already an AMAZING recording artist. Love ya 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕.”
Elizabeth Hurley added, “Yay!!!!!! Congratulations.”
Along with music, Natalie has also tackled the acting world, appearing in “Johnny English” and the soap opera “Neighbors.”
