ATOMIC KITTEN singer Natasha Hamilton has announced the pop trio's one-year hiatus will be even longer now she is pregnant with her second child.

The svelte star, 22, and new boyfriend GAVIN HATCHER are expecting their first child together in January 2005 - a brother or sister for two-year-old JOSH, whose father is London nightclub boss and former Westlife bodyguard FRAN COSGRAVE.

The WHOLE AGAIN group announced they would take a 12 month break in January (04) so Hamilton could spend more time with Josh.

Hamilton says, "I took a year off to be with Josh and I'm pregnant again.

"I'm expecting in January so I guess that sort of puts things on the back-burner for a bit."
