BGT judge Alesha Dixon is pregnant, and she’s showing off her baby bump as filming for the Champions season is underway. Alesha, who has been on the show since 2012, even announced her pregnancy live on-air last season.
The judges (including Amanda Holden, David Walliams, and Simon Cowell) posed for a photo together as filming started at Wembley Arena in London. Alesha is seen wearing a loose-fitting dress and turning to the side to show her pregnant belly.
When Did Alesha Dixon Announce She’s Pregnant?
Alesha Dixon announced that she was pregnant back in May, and spread the word with the help of BGT hosts Ant and Dec. As they introduced the show, they congratulated Alesha on the happy news.
Of course, fellow judge David Walliams couldn’t help but joke that the baby is his. “These things happen when you’re on the tour,” he said. All jokes aside, Alesha said she is “over the moon” about the news, and happy to celebrate on the show.
Who Is The Baby’s Father?
This will be Alesha’s second child with her husband Azuka Ononye, who is her former backup dancer. In 2013, she gave birth to a daughter named Azura Sienna, who might be on her way to a music career of her own.
“She is quite musical,” Alesha said of Azura in a 2016 interview. “She loves singing along to Adele, she’s always playing the keyboard singing and she’s quite good with the drums, it’s lovely to see. One day hopefully I’d love that [if she had her own studio].”
Is Alesha Dixon’s Baby A Boy Or Girl?
After making her announcement, Alesha hinted that she knows the sex of her second child, but wouldn’t reveal it. “Thing is, I can’t tell you because I haven’t checked with Azuka if it’s okay to tell you,” she explained, adding that they hadn’t considered names yet.
Alesha, who is 40, revealed last year that she wasn’t sure if having another baby was on the cards for her. “I don’t know whether it will happen given my age but I adore the idea of a large family and I hope I will be lucky,” she said.
Can Amanda Holden Deliver Alesha’s Baby?
The answer is: apparently yes! In the video below you can see Amanda Holden go through a midwife training program. Out of My Depth was a TV show which followed the BGT judge as she trained to be part of a hospital delivery room team. So as pregnant Alesha Dixon sits at that BGT panel table, she can rest assured she’s only inches away from a proffesional.
