"I wanted to be the first to tell you...we have some exciting news to share!" Rochelle wrote.
"Marvin and I could NOT be more thrilled to announce that we are expecting our first child mid next year.
"We have always dreamt of being parents and the news is the best early Christmas present we could have asked for.
"I know Marvin is going to be a great dad and we're so excited to start a family."
Fellow celebrities were quick to offer their congratulations on Twitter.

Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole added her congratulations, writing: "Congratulations rochellethesats jlsofficial I'm SO happy for you £SoCute."
And bandmate Frankie Sandford posted a picture of the herself and the other members of the Saturdays, writing: "Toasting a glass of vino to the baby!!!!"
