Cher Lloyd Announces Pregnancy, New Music Out This Year!
Now we know the reason why Cher Lloyd was so M.I.A last year. She’s pregnant!
The “With Ur Love”, “Want U Back” pop singer just took to Instagram to post a photo of herself super pregnant with her first child and to update fans about what’s been going on with her in the last several months with a long letter included in the caption area.
Basically, Cher wrote that she and her husband Craig (I had no idea she was married!) are expecting a baby (she’s four months pregnant now) and that’s why she had to disconnect from social media, the public eye in the last half of 2017 but that she’s also been recording new music (to be released “later in the year”).
2018 is going to be one thrilling year for Ms. Lloyd!
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
Congratulations to her on her forthcoming motherhood and yes please! give us that new music soon! OK, being realistic “soon” is not going to be… fall/winter release maybe? But according to her words in the letter, her new music sounds like it’s going to her best work yet and considering she’s had monster pop hits in the past, that's a very big claim. She better deliver!
For nostalgia purposes, here’s how Cher Lloyd’s career started; with a killer audition on the “X Factor UK”.
And here's the last song she left us ("Sirens"):
