British girl band Atomic Kitten's Natasha Hamilton is pregnant with her long-term boyfriend's baby.

The WHOLE AGAIN star, 21, is expecting her first child with GAVIN HATCHER in January (05) and is already mother to two-year-old JOSH, from her ill-fated romance with Fran Cosgrave.

Hamilton says, "I was ecstatic when I found out."

The Liverpool-born singer is taking a temporary break from the British chart-topping trio to spend more time with baby Josh and Gavin.

Fellow bandmates Jenny Frost and Liz Mcclarnon are concentrating on their solo careers during a planned year-long hiatus from the group.
