Alexandra Burke has opened up about missing her mother during her pregnancy.
The Broken Heels singer lost her mum Melissa Bell in August 2017.
Burke's mother had been suffering from kidney failure prior to her death. She also suffered from diabetes mellitus.
Burke is expecting her first child but is finding it bittersweet without her mum by her side.
She recently shared a photo of her and her mother on her mum's birthday.
She wrote, "Now more than ever I need you the most."
The mum-to-be added, "I’m still very lost without you. But I know you’re in a better place. I love you mummy, Happy heavenly birthday. You’re my world."
A source revealed to OK! that the West End star has been finding things difficult.

There are so many momentous moments her mum is missing out on and there's no doubt it's breaking her heart.
"She’s an emotional girl and she’s finding it difficult.
"She and her mum were there for each other in every way, her mum was there for her every step of the way, so she’s really feeling it."
They added, "She really misses her mum."
They explained that it feels like she's grieving the loss of her mother all over again.
"It’s sad because the one person she wants is her mum. It brings the loss back," they added.
Luckily, Alexandra has been leaning on her friends, and of course, her partner Darren Randolph.
Alexandra and Darren revealed they were expecting their first child together on February 14th.
The singer is due to give birth later this year.
