Thursday 20 June 2013
Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon is pregnant with her first child.
A spokesman for the star confirmed the news.
He said: "Alesha Dixon and her partner, Azuka Ononye, are delighted to announce that they are expecting their first child later this year.
"Alesha and Azuka are looking forward to this happy chapter in their lives and would request privacy to enjoy this happy and most important event."
Dixon is reported to met Ononye, a dancer, when they worked together as she launched her solo career after the break-up of girl group Mis-Teeq.
She appeared as a contestant on BBC ballroom show Strictly Come Dancing and won the series in 2007 before joining the judging panel two years later, replacing Arlene Phillips.
Dixon, who joined rival show Britain's Got Talent last year, married So Solid Crew star MC Harvey in 2005 but they split up a year later.
