Romance blossomed when they were on the road as part of The Big Reunion Tour.
And now Natasha Hamilton and Ritchie Neville’s whirlwind relationship has ramped up a gear with the two revealing she is pregnant with their first child together.
The loved up couple revealed the happy news to this week’s OK! magazine describing it as a ‘miracle’.
Natasha said: “It’s a complete miracle,” before adding, “I’ve had the worst morning sickness ever.”
The Atomic Kitten star also spoke about the first time the two saw the scan of their child – admitting that it all became too much.
“After the first scan I couldn’t breathe – Ritchie went into panic mode,” she revealed.
Despite their circumstances, Ritchie and Natasha don’t currently have any plans to wed anytime soon.
She said: “We’ve talked about marriage before – but there’s no rush.”
The baby will be Ritchie’s first child with the 5ive star planning on taking the role of being a father very seriously.
He said: “I want to be a hands-on dad. Tash will be feeding the baby and I’ll be feeding her sandwiches.
“Natasha’s stuck with me forever now, no matter what happens.”
Natasha and Ritchie grew close after working on ITV2 hit show The Big Reunion together last year after he moved back to the UK from Australia.
The Atomic Kitten star is already mum to 10-year-old Josh who she shares with Fran Cosgrove and 8-year-old Harry from her relationship with Gavin Hatcher.
She split from her husband Riad Erraji last summer after six years together with the two sharing son Alfie, 3.
