Singer Michelle Heaton, who is already a
mother to daughter Faith, is now expecting a son. She is "over the
moon" about it.
Heaton is expecting her second child with husband Hugh Hanley.
"I'm over the moon to be having a boy - which me and Hugh secretly
wanted," Heaton told OK! magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk. This
will be the last child that Heaton will have as she is set to have
an operation to remove her ovaries.
"If I was going to have a third child, there would be another
two years of waiting before I could have my ovaries removed and
that delay could eventually take me away from my children, so we
won't be having any more. We've been lucky so far let's not try to
be too greedy," she added.
The singer was diagnosed with the mutated BRCA2 gene, which
gives carriers a high chance of developing cancer. Earlier, Heaton
also underwent double mastectomy to avoid developing breast
Heaton was a member of the pop group Liberty X from 2001 until

Scott-Lee in October 2006, but split in June 2008. She married Hugh
Hanley in the Bahamas in July 2010. They welcomed their daughter
Faith in 2012.
