Move over Kate and Wills, our very own Una Foden has also announced that she's expecting another baby.

The Tipperary beauty is already mum to Aoife Belle and she's now expecting her second child with husband Ben Foden.

The Saturdays singer revealed the couple's happy news, saying: "I know lots of people have been guessing and Ben and I can now confirm that Aoife is going to have a baby brother or sister next year. We're all very happy."

The mum-of-one will have plenty of support from her bandmates Rochelle Humes and Frankie Sandford as they also have children.

Una married England rugby player Ben in her native Tipperary in June 2012, three months after Aoife was born.

Thurles-born Una became a household name when she joined English girl group The Saturdays in 2007.

The Saturdays are currently on a 13-date greatest hits tour and will be playing Dublin's Olympia Theatre on October 17.

Being pregnant while on tour should be a walk in the park for super-fit Una.

She had no problems keeping up with her bandmates while pregnant with Aoife Belle on their last tour in 2011.

Una (32) has previously spoken of finding it difficult to balance motherhood and her singing career, and said that being apart from her two-year-old daughter is "the tough side of the business".

While she won't be moving home to Ireland any time soon, Una tries to keep Aoife in touch with her heritage.

"It's very important for me that Aoife be in touch with her Irish heritage," she said.

"She knows a few Irish words: the word 'Gaeilge' is her favourite because she finds it so funny, it always makes her giggle," she revealed.

There's been a mini celebrity baby boom over the past few days.

Price William and Kate Middleton announced they were expecting the latest heir to the throne and singer Samantha Mumba also revealed that she is expecting a baby girl with husband Torray Scales.
