Alesha Dixon reveals that she’s not ruled out having another baby

BGT judge only gave birth to her second child eight months ago

Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon has revealed that she’s considered having another child.

The 41-year-old star only gave birth to her daughter, Anaya, eight months ago – her second with husband Azuka Ononye.

But in a candid interview, she admitted that the thought of adding to their brood has crossed her mind on more than one occasion.

Mixed emotions

Alesha – who also has a six-year-old daughter, Azura – was speaking on the podcast Happy Mum, Happy Baby, presented by bestselling author Giovanna Fletcher.

She revealed: “Why wouldn’t I want another baby? I have days when I say: ‘Absolutely no way. Two is great, this is manageable.’

I don’t want to say ‘I’m pregnant’ when people don’t even know I’m in a relationship, and then distract from the show.

“Then I have other days where the joy and the love… I’ve had that feeling of: ‘Am I never going to be pregnant again? Am I never going to breastfeed again?'”

The former Mis-Teeq singer also revealed that she was secretly pregnant with Anaya while filming last year’s series of Britain’s Got Talent.

Explaining why she hadn’t spilled the beans, she told Giovanna: “I don’t want to say ‘I’m pregnant’ when people don’t even know I’m in a relationship, and then distract from the show.

“In my mind, I was like: ‘Let’s just finish the show so that it can have its moment without any pregnancy malarkey, and then we can announce that we’re pregnant.”

This isn’t the first time that Alesha has suggested that she would like to have another baby.

She told Rochelle and Eamonn Holmes: “I’ll go again next, because I’m running out of time.”

Alesha is believed to have met dancer and choreographer Azuka in 2012, but although they are rumoured to have tied the knot in 2017, they’ve never publicly confirmed it.

The BGT judge was previously married to So Solid Crew rapper MC Harvey. However, the couple divorced just a year after their wedding.
