Alexandra Burke reveals she is expecting her first child with Irish footballer

Baby joy for Alexandra Burke.

Singer and West End star Alexandra Burke is pregnant with her first child.

The X Factor winner and her footballer boyfriend Darren Randolph are over the moon.

The couple announced their joyous news by sharing a touching video on Instagram. The film features short clips of their life together including Darren kissing Alexandra’s bump and the couple walking their dogs together.

The Strictly Come Dancing star looks as happy as ever as she cradles her bump in the video.

Alexandra simply captioned the video, “Due June 2022”. Darren also posted the same video on his Instagram.

Loving messages rolled in shortly after the pair shared their special news.

Daisy Lowe wrote, “Oh my goodness!!! Congratulations!!! So excited for you.”

“Omg Alexandra and Darren congratulations to you both. You will be an amazing mum, you had a great teacher,” another added.

One shared, “I’m so happy for you guys. Truly the best Valentine’s Day news.”

“Congrats you two. Irish men obvs have something special,” another quipped.

Alexandra and Irish footballer Darren were first linked in May 2021.

The couple went public with their relationship by posting a selfie together on Instagram last October.

It is believed Alexandra was hesitant about dating another footballer.

Last year, a source revealed that she was taking things slow.

“Alexandra was extremely reluctant to date another footballer but Darren is the sweetest, most down-to-earth guy — and incredibly charming. He wore her down!”
