Leona Lewis and husband Dennis Jauch are celebrating the birth of their first child, a baby girl named Carmel Allegra.
The 37-year-old former X Factor winner shared the news with her nearly 740,000 Instagram followers.
Next to a photo showing her holding a baby, she wrote: “And then three. Our little Carmel Allegra arrived on 22.07.22. “
Lewis and Jauch married in July 2019 at Sting’s estate in Tuscany, Italy, in the presence of 180 friends and family members, including Sugababes singer Keisha Buchanan and winner The Voice Jermain Jackman, who sang at the ceremony.
Jauch, a German creative director, shared the same photo and message on his Instagram account.
Lewis announced her pregnancy on Instagram in March by sharing a photo of herself wearing a black bodycon dress showing off her baby bump.
She captioned the post: “Can’t wait to see you in the summer.”
Friends and celebrities have sent messages to the singer, congratulating her on her new arrival, with Michelle Visage, Dancing on Ice winner and radio host Sonny Jay and singer Jessie J both comment on her Instagram post.
Lewis won the third series of The X Factor in 2006 and went on to achieve success with singles including Bleeding Love, Run and Better In Time.
In 2016, she replaced Nicole Scherzinger as Grizabella in the Broadway revival of Cats.
