Irish singer Samantha Mumba is ready to pop as she's 36 weeks pregnant and the singer cannot wait to meet her little girl.

The Gotta Tell You singer is based in LA and is expecting her first child with her husband Torray Scales.

She posted a picture of growing bump writing, "I just want to meet her already and fit back into something other than leggings".

The 31-year-old has kept fit throughout her pregnancy with constant visits to the gym.

"I truly believe working out contributed to me not having a lot of the usual pregnancy symptoms like leg cramps, headaches, varicose veins, back pain and swelling," she wrote on her blog.

"Nightly foot massages from my husband have been key as well.

"I've also been able to stay within the healthy range of weight gain, have energy, lower the chances of baby developing diabetes later in life and it helps with labour and delivery as well," she added.

Samantha says she is "completely in awe of what my body can do and what a privilege it is to carry her life and feel her moving and growing inside me".

"It's such a special and spiritual time and I have found myself tuning into my body more than ever and praying for her," she added.
