Cher Lloyd and her husband, Craig Monk, are currently expecting a child. The 24-year-old X-Factor alum announced on the 24th of January that she’s expecting her first baby with Craig. An insider who spoke with us said they’re “absolutely thrilled to be having a baby together. It’s about time!”
In a black-and-white Instagram post shared today, Cher revealed she and her husband are “so happy” to announce the news. Not only does she have new songs on the go, but they also have a child due.
Lloyd wrote that she and Craig are “thrilled” to announce the news of their baby which is due in May of this year. The singer added she and her team are excited to reveal that her upcoming singles are set for release as well.
I know it seems like I’ve been quiet for a while but I wanted to take this opportunity to bring you all up to speed on what I’ve been up to over the last year. I decided to take some time away from the public eye to focus on what really matters and get back to what I truly love doing. As you all know, making music and singing is where it all began for me, it’s what makes me truly happy, and I wanted to get back to that happy place once again, enter the studio and focus on simply making great music for you all. I’m so happy to announce that I now have a collection of amazing new songs (that I cannot wait to share with you all!), but also, there’s another reason why I’m writing to you today and that’s because I am beyond thrilled to inform you all that my husband Craig and I are also expecting our first child in May!!! We are absolutely over the moon to share this news with you all. I am so excited to enter this new chapter in my life, surrounded by family I love, a supportive team around me and with music I’ve worked super hard on and am so excited and proud to reveal to you later in the year. And now we're going to have a little baby to enjoy this experience with us along the way! Thank you all for being so patient, as you now know, I’ve been a busy little bee but I promise it’ll be worth the wait! I’m excited for all that 2018 has in store for me and I can’t wait to see you all very soon! Cher x
Lloyd and the hairstylist got married back in November of 2013, and the singer told everyone for the first time on her Instagram account.
She posted a photo, in black and white, on their big day with the caption, “18/11/13.” An insider who was at the wedding said it was “a lot of fun” and “everything went smoothly.”
Just a few hours after her initial tweet, Lloyd took to her Twitter page to thank all of her friends, fans, and family for their support and love. Back in 2013, during an interview with reporters from MTV UK, Lloyd said that her relationship with Craig has “changed” her a lot.
Sources close to the couple told us, “Cher and Craig have grown so much as an item, and their relationship is getting stronger and stronger. It’s amazing how good they go together; their personalities coalesce. It’s like the perfect union of ‘calm’ and ‘fiery.’ We do not doubt that it will last for a long time.”
