She also shared a picture of two swans with her followers, along with the caption: “There’s a little heart beating next to mine.”
She reassured fans at the time that she was alright, telling the Liverpool Echo: “I feel so bad for worrying everyone. I’m fine, really fine.”
Rebecca has been with her current boyfriend for over a year, who she has known since before finding fame with ‘The X Factor’. This will be the couple’s first child together.
The star already has two children, Lillie May and Karl, from a previous relationship.
Last year, she spoke to the Daily Mirror about the bond between her new partner and her children, saying: “We’ve been together a year now. He’s lovely and he looks after the kids. He goes fishing with my son.”
She also revealed that she thinks they could get married in the future, telling the newspaper the pair have a “practical love”.
“And there’s a practical love, where you care about each other deeply, have the same outlook and can see yourself marrying. I think I’ve found that with my partner now and I’m over the moon.”
