She is expecting her first baby with husband Dennis Jauch later this year. And Leona Lewis looked radiant as she revealed her growing baby bump during an outing in LA on Saturday. The X Factor winner, 37, placed a loving hand on her stomach as she enjoyed some relaxation time. The star wore a tight black top paired with skinny jeans and a pastel blue shirt. She wore her tresses in a ponytail and went make-up free for the outing.
Last month Leona celebrated her baby shower at the bank holiday weekend at Hopefield Animal Sanctuary. The singer looked picture perfect in a floaty off-the-shoulder yellow and white dress that put her bump on full display. She paired the lacey dress with floral printed wellington boots, and wore her caramel coloured locks down and in their natural curls.
Taking to Instagram on Monday, she shared a slew of snaps and a video from the gorgeous shower. She posed with her loved ones, including Dennis, and several animals from the sanctuary.
The stunning shower comes after Leona revealed she was ‘unable to leave the house’ due to being ‘severely ill’ during her ‘challenging’ first trimester. The former X Factor winner shared the news as she enjoyed a weekend away after recovering from her illness. She showed off her blossoming baby bump in a navy bikini top and denim shorts while paddle boarding with her beloved dog near LA. Leona completed her look with a white shirt and sunhat as she caressed her tummy.
In a lengthy caption, she opened up about her health struggles, writing: ‘Spent time in nature with the pups and the bump this weekend. ‘I had a really challenging first trimester, I’ll share more at some point for anyone who is going through the same. ‘But I was severely ill and unable to leave the house. So promised myself when I could get out I would spend more time in nature. She’s truly healing x.’
Leona recently showed off her growing bump in a black dress as she posed for a radiant shoot and revealed her baby news with husband Dennis. Sources recently told The Sun that Leona passed the 12-week mark and said the ‘over the moon’ couple told their family and friends their news at the beginning of the year.
The X Factor winner married choreographer Dennis in a lavish ceremony in Tuscany, Italy, in 2019 after 10 years of dating. In November 2018, notoriously private Leona revealed she was engaged to her long-term love by sharing a picture of her eye-catching diamond ring while on holiday in San Juan.
Just one year after tying the knot with Dennis, Leona revealed that she wanted children and said she would like to adopt because of her mother’s experience growing up in a children’s home. She told Stella magazine: ‘I do want children, but Dennis and I have also talked about adopting.
‘My mum grew up in a children’s home. No one adopted her as a child, and I would very much like to adopt. ‘But I’m still figuring things out. If it was up to my husband, we would have had kids yesterday.’ In 2013, Leona said that she had always wanted to get married in her 20s but then realised that she was ‘not ready’ when she reached her late 20s.
