Morgan is bowled over by news of second baby

IRISH singer Morgan Deane is expecting her second child with her South African cricket star husband, Graeme Smith.

The Cork singer, who gave birth to the couple's first child Cadence Christine last year, announced the exciting news yesterday.

"So excited to say we are expecting our second baby!" a delighted Morgan said. "We're three months pregnant and feeling so blessed."

The singer was immediately inundated with congratulatory messages and took to Twitter to thank her followers.

"Thanks so much for all the well wishes on our second pregnancy! Cadence is now six months and we're three months pregnant! My hands will be full."

Morgan recently told the Herald that she was on "cloud nine" after giving birth.

"Motherhood already beats anything else I've experienced; she is an absolute blessing. I can't stop staring at her, she is so precious," she said.
