She said that the news came out before she wanted it to with her first child.

"Unfortunately we got papped coming out of a scan. it was early on, so I had that taken away from me.

"So this time I was like I'm going to be in control and keep it quiet as long as possible," she said.

Rochelle said she knew the moment had come when she would have to reveal her pregnancy when she was having a fitting before Children in Need.

"I was actually trying on some dresses with my stylist for Children In Need and he was like 'dude, I think tomorrow you might have to say something. It looks like you had a very big dinner!'", Rochelle said.

Rochelle's second baby is due at the end of February and the singer said she was enjoying not knowing the sex of the unborn.

She said: "We found it with Alaia. I wanted a surprise this time. I've enjoyed the whole thing this time.

"Marvin really thinks it's a boy, He's convinced ...because I've carried very differently."
