The Britain’s Got Talent live semi-finals kicked off with an unexpected announcement tonight – Alesha Dixon is having a baby.
The news was delivered by hosts Ant and Dec in a musical opening number, during which they sang ‘Alesha is expecting’.
The crowd erupted into cheers, with fellow judge David Walliams standing up to clap the 40-year-old.
It’ll be Alesha’s second child with husband and professional dancer Azuka Ononye, whom the star married in 2017.
The couple already have a five-year-old daughter, Azura Sienna Ononye.
As the news was announced, Alesha shrugged her shoulders and pretended not to know what the boys were on about but quickly launched into a smile, confirming her pregnancy.
When Ant and Dec went over to chat to the expecting mother, Alesha said she is ‘over the moon’ with the news while David Walliams pretended it was his baby, joking: ‘These things happen when you’re on the tour.’
Fans of the show flocked to Twitter to congratulate the star, saying they ‘loved the way’ it was announced on live TV.
‘Awwwww Ant and Dec announcing Alesha Dixon’s pregnancy was so cute,’ wrote one excited viewer, while another added: ‘Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I’m so happy and excited for you alesha another mini dixon !! You look glowing and as gorgeous as always love you lots.’
There’s no news as to how far along Alesha is, or when the baby’s due.
So for now all that’s left to do is congratulate the BGT judge on her pregnancy. Commence bump watch.
