Sam Bailey Pregnant: 'X Factor' Winner Expecting Her Third Child

'X Factor' champ Sam Bailey has revealed she is pregnant.

The former prison officer - nicknamed Screwbo on the show - says she found out after doing a pregnancy test during a trip to the supermarket with her husband.

She told The Sun: “I went and did it in the toilet while he was getting all the food.

“I came out and went, ‘Yep — I’m pregnant’. It wasn’t planned.”

It will be the 36-year-old's third child with hubby Craig, although she admits the news initially left her shocked and upset.

“When I got into the car I was really upset because I thought I’d let everyone at my management and the record label down," she explained.

"But they were really good about it. I was going to go on tour solo at the end of October — but I have managed to move it until January.”

But Sam - who is ten weeks pregnant — says she and Craig couldn't be happier that she is expecting again.

“He thinks it’s a New Year’s Eve baby and he could be right. I’ve always wanted three kids.”

Sam has since taken to Twitter to confirm the news, posting a snap of her first scan, which she captioned: 'Meet Peanut!!'

Congrats to them both!
