Natalie Imbruglia is going to be a mom!
The "Torn" singer broke the exciting news via Instagram on Wednesday while also sharing that her career has taken a promising turn.
"I’m very happy to announce that I have just signed a record deal with BMG!! What an AMAZING team," she captioned a beaming photo of herself surrounded by her new BMG team. "I have been busy writing for the past year and a half and can’t wait to share these new songs with you all!!!!"
"And as you can see from the pic.. there is another announcement... (no I haven’t swallowed a watermelon)," she joked. "I’m expecting my first child this Autumn. 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."
The image she is referencing is the second frame in her post, which shows her holding her growing baby bump while posing for a mirror selfie in a leopard-print dress.
The 44-year-old Australian-born songstress concluded the post, saying, "I’m so excited about this next adventure... a new album and I’m going to be a mum! ?????❤️✨."
Imbruglia, who resides in the United Kingdom, was married to Silverchair singer Daniel Johns from 2003-2008. Prior, she had a "happy relationship" with Friends star David Schwimmer, a fact she confirmed to Red in 2015. In that same interview, she opened up about her thoughts on motherhood.
"I definitely want children," she said. "Would I have one on my own? I would. I am not at that point yet but I am not opposed to the idea. I’ve got time."
"It’s a bit tricky that a lot of my friends are on to their third child... that is tough because we all know it’s like a members’ club," she added.
