AceShowbiz - Former Sugababes star Heidi Range is expecting her second child after suffering two miscarriages. The singer and her husband, Alex Partakis, are already parents to three-year-old daughter Aurelia, and now they're gearing up for a summer due date.
Heidi announced the news in a new interview with Hello! magazine, revealing the baby girl is expected in August. "We're both over the moon," she says. "Aurelia has been asking for a brother or sister every day."
The baby news comes after Range suffered two miscarriages in 18 months. "I've had two losses since her [Aurelia], so it was quite a nerve-wracking time until I had the scans," the 37-year-old reminds.
She adds, "I'm one of two girls and my sister, Hayley, is my best friend. If we can give Aurelia what Hayley and I have, then that's the best gift in the world. I'm so excited for her that she is going to have that but Alex is slightly concerned about the amount of hormones that are going to be in the house."
During the interview, the original member of Atomic Kitten was asked whether she and her husband had thought about not being able to have another child. "Yes," she candidly admits. "I would have been heartbroken, but I always thought we were lucky as we were so blessed to have Aurelia."
Range tied the knot with Partakis in September 2016. Less than a year later, she announced that the two of them were expecting their first child together. She gave birth to Aurelia in January 2018.
