It looks like S Club 7 is now S Club 3… because one of your favourite members of the band is expecting her first child!
Tina Barrett – who rose to fame as part of the much-loved pop group in the late 90s – has announced that she and partner Paul Cashmore are parents-to-be. Aw.
The 39-year-old is due to give birth on 19 June, with the couple admitting they were ‘in shock’ when they discovered Tina’s pregnancy just three months after they began trying for a baby.
Revealing the news to OK!, Tina says: ‘Until Paul I hadn’t really met a man I wanted to have children with.
‘I’m 40 this year so there was a part of me that was worried I might have left it too late, but thankfully that wasn’t the case.’
Paul and Tina met back in 2012, when they were both on the set of Russell Grant’s charity music video for The Clapping Song.

She’d kept a fairly low profile since S Club split in 2003, but returned to the limelight last year after the band got back together for a reunion tour.
It sounds like her old pals are thrilled for her after hearing the happy news. She continues: ‘Jo [O’Meara] burst into tears. She’s so sweet, she couldn’t have been happier for us.
‘I’d love my child to be friends with Jo and Rachel [Stevens]’ children. Perhaps we could encourage them to start their own band, that would be cute!’
