Christina Perri has revealed she is pregnant with her second baby after losing two babies two years ago in a heartbreaking miscarriage and stillbirth.
The singer, 35, took to Instagram to share the joyful news that she and husband Paul Costabile are expecting again, sharing a sweet video of them announcing the news to their daughter Carmella.
The four-year-old was seen taking a strip of scan photos out of a box with a pink helium balloon attached to it, before proudly showing it to the camera and kissing her mum’s bump.
Christina told her followers: ‘Rosie sent Carmella a little sister and we’re very excited. we’ve been having all the feelings, but mostly trying everyday to choose joy.’
The Jar Of Hearts and A Thousand Years star had previously opened up about two devastating baby losses two years ago.
In January 2020 Christina revealed she had had a miscarriage at 11 weeks pregnant, just a week before she was planning to tell her loved ones about the pregnancy.
She said at the time: ‘We are shocked and completely heartbroken. We were only 1 week away from sharing the news so I feel like it’s also important to share this news too.
‘I want to continue to help change the story & stigma around miscarriage, secrecy and shame.’
She added: ‘I am so sad but not discouraged. When the time feels right we will try again, but today, we mourn our little life lost.’

Christina had shared a photo of the baby’s hand as she told her followers: ‘Last night we lost our baby girl.
