CONGRATS!!

Singer and actress Natalie Imbruglia's motherhood dreams are coming true after undergoing successful in vitro fertilisation (IVF) with a sperm donor - she's pregnant at 44.

The Torn star shared the news via Instagram on Wednesday, posting a selfie, in which she showed off her baby bump.

The mum-to-be also announced the news she had signed a new record deal with BMG.

"I have been busy writing for the past year and a half and can’t wait to share these new songs with you all!!!!" she wrote. "And as you can see from the pic... there is another announcement... (no I haven’t swallowed a watermelon). I’m expecting my first child this Autumn."

Natalie added, "For those of you that know me, this has been something I have wanted for a very long time and I’m blessed that this is possible with the help of IVF and a sperm donor - I won’t be saying anything more on that publicly. I’m so excited about this next adventure... a new album and I'm going to be a mum!"

It's not clear if the Australian star will be raising the child as a single mum - she split from her husband, Silverchair rocker Daniel Johns, in 2008 and announced she was dating photographer Matt Field in 2017, but there's no suggestion he is still on the scene.
