Alexandra Burke Has Given Birth To Her First Child

The singer, 33, and her footballer beau Darren Randolph, 34, announced they had become parents on social media on Monday morning and revealed their unusual nickname for their newborn baby.

Alexandra posted a picture of her little one’s feet on Instagram and wrote: “Welcome to the world our little grape, we already love you more than words can say.”

The couple chose not to reveal the sex of their baby.

The songstress’ celeb pals soon rushed to the comment section to congratulate her on becoming a mum.

Motsi Mabuse typed: “Congratulations Mama all the best”, while Love Island’s Samira Mighty said: “Yay, congratulations!”

The X Factor winner revealed she was pregnant in a post earlier this year, with her having teased their little bundle of joy was due to arrive over the summer.

She announced the pregnancy with a video of the couple – who started dating last year – which included scenes of the pair walking around a forest and playing with their dogs.

The footage also showed her partner – who is a goalkeeper for West Ham United – kissing her growing tummy. Another scene showed the couple rubbing her baby bump.

The post was captioned: “Due June 2022.” It prompted messages of congratulations from fellow celebrities such as presenters Alison Hammond, 47, and Amanda Holden, 51.

The couple later expressed gratitude over the response, having received “so many beautiful messages and well wishes” from supporters following their announcement.

They said: “Just wanted to say a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” The pair added that they were “truly overwhelmed” and said it would be “an exciting time ahead.”

It was revealed in the post – issued in February this year – that they were both “working away as usual,” with Alexandra having teased that she was busy recording her fourth album.

During the pregnancy, Alexandra – who rose to fame as the winner of the X Factor in 2008 – shared photos of her growing baby bump with her followers on social media.

She teased that her bump had “popped” in a post that was uploaded earlier this year, which included photos of the theatre performer showcasing her growing tummy.

The first showed her posing in underwear whilst at the end of a bed, with her seen cradling her bump in the photo. She had written in the caption alongside it: “Ate and popped.”

Another snap showed her taking a selfie in a mirror, with Darren photographed kissing her bump. A third photo showed the couple smiling together for the camera.

Alexandra and Darren went red carpet official with their relationship at the premiere of Dune in September last year.

It’s believed the pair have been dating since at May 2021, as the singer appeared to confirm their romance by sharing a cute selfie of them together.
