Katherine Jenkins has announced that she is pregnant with her first child, a baby girl.

The singer shared the happy news on Instagram, posting a picture of herself with husband Andrew Levitas on their wedding day along with a pair of pink baby shoes.

She wrote: "Couldn't be more excited to meet our little girl! #MummyToBe #DaddyToBe #ArtProject #Collaboration #Family."

Jenkins said in a statement to the Daily Mail: "We are overjoyed to be expecting our first child in the autumn. Starting a family and moving into this exciting phase of our lives is a blessing for which we are incredibly grateful. We eagerly await the arrival of our little girl!"

Jenkins and Levitas married last September at Hampton Court Palace.
