Pussycat Dolls star Jessica Sutta has revealed she is pregnant with her first child and is set to welcome a baby boy in May.

The 38-year-old singer and dancer, who married drummer Mikey Marquart in September 2019, announced the news in an interview with Entertainment Tonight and said they had already begun discussing names.

She said: "He feels like an MJ to me, but he could be a Mikey, a Jesse, a Zion, or maybe he'll make up his own name when he gets older. Whatever he wants. It’s his life.

"I’m just going to have the pleasure of being his mother, and I’m going to let him live and be exactly who he wants to be."

Sutta said her bandmates had advised to her to "just to enjoy it".

She added: "You know, it’s a beautiful experience. The first trimester I was sick. I was sick the whole time, and I was eating crackers and pasta. And it was just ugh. But after that, it was just exciting.

"To feel something inside you moving, and you just connect, and it’s like this overwhelming sense of love and protection.

"You’re just like, 'Oh my God, I can’t wait to meet you and hold you and kiss you and just spoil you’."

Sutta also dismissed speculation online that her pregnancy would mean the upcoming Pussycat Dolls tour would not go ahead.

The group – Kimberly Wyatt, Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Carmit Bachar and Sutta – had to postpone their comeback shows after Covid-19 halted live performance in March 2020.

The chart-topping group parted ways in 2010 amid reports of tensions between the then six members but Scherzinger confirmed they were back together in 2019.
