Big announcement: The Saturdays singer took to Twitter just hours after welcoming her second son
‘He is absolutely perfect – Parker is so excited to be a big brother!’
Parker is her oldest son, who was born in October 2013.
The happy news comes after former Strictly contestant Frankie revealed the pregnancy had been a struggle after she began suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, the same severe morning sickness Kate Middleton was diagnosed with during both of her pregnancies.
Speaking to The Mirror about her ordeal, Frankie said: ‘At one point I just lay on the floor because even moving my eyes made me feel ill.
‘Women should be honest about the fact that although having a baby is wonderful, it can be hard. It’s a massive body change and life change and comes with a whole wave of emotions.’
Frankie, who has been in the public eye since finding fame with S Club Juniors at the age of 12, also admitted that she won’t be rushing into trying to shift her post-baby weight, saying she won’t just ‘snap back into shape by magic’ and that’s a reality for women.
Frankie announced she was expecting her second child in January, and had to pull out of the Strictly Come Dancing national tour because she was too ill to perform.
At the time of her big reveal, Frankie posted to her Twitter fans: ‘So excited to tell you that Wayne & I are expecting another baby later this year. We cant wait for Parker to have a little brother or sister.
‘Sadly I’m really unwell with my pregnancy and won’t be able to take part in the Strictly tour. I’m SO sorry. I was so looking forward to it.
She also said in a statement: ‘Wayne and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting our second baby. It is very early days, but we couldn’t be happier and Parker will make a wonderful big brother.’
