SUPERSTAR MA; Jamelia expecting baby with soccer boyfriend Darren.
JAMELIA is three months pregnant with her second child, it was revealed last night.
The delighted pop star, 24, and her footballer boyfriend Darren Byfield made the announcement after scans showed the baby was healthy.
A spokesman for the singer said: "Jamelia and Darren's first baby is due in October.
"They are ecstatically happy. She did not want to confirm things until her latest scan."
Jamelia and Gillingham striker Darren, 28, have been together since meeting at a wedding last summer.
But they have no marriage plans of their own.
A source close to Jamelia said: "They will wait before making any announcement about weddings. They haven't got time for marriage at the moment."
Last month Jamelia moved in briefly with Darren after her Bedfordshire home was flooded.
She already has a daughter, three-year-old Teja. Her hit song Thank You was an ironic reference to domestic violence inflicted by Teja's father, Terry Wallen.
Jamelia was then single for three years and said: "I'm very traditional in the way I approach relationships. A lot of people my age rush into things. It takes a long time for me to get to anything personal."
She had her first hit at 18 but put her career on hold for her daughter. Her half-brother Kiaro Beckford, 21, was jailed for a gangland killing in November.
