The Britain’s Got Talent judge, 33, confirmed the news this afternoon.
A statement from her representative read: “Alesha Dixon and her partner Azuka Ononye are delighted to announce that they are expecting their first child later this year”.
“Alesha and Azuka are looking forward to this happy chapter in their lives and would request privacy to enjoy this happy and most important event.”
Alesha first met Nigerian Azuka in 2006 when he was hired as a backing dancer following the split of her band Mis-Teeq.
The two formed a strong friendship and kept on working together to produce her last album The Entertainer in 2010.
In late 2011, the couple escape the limelight by stealing away to five-star yoga retreat Shanti-Som on the Costa del Sol and began to spend more time together in early 2012.
The sexy Alesha was previously married to So Solid Crew member MC Harvey, real name Michael Harvey Jnr, who she married in 2005 at stately home Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire.
Their relationship finished in 2006 when she discovered he cheated on her with her pop pal Javine Hylton.
P.S: Do you remember the BGT show where the British born Nigerian girls danced to Kukere and Oliver twist by D’banj? Remember Alesha Dixon bumping her head to the rhythm of the Nigerian smash hits? Well, her Nigerian bobo explains that!!!
