Writing alongside the snap which featured 'Sidekick Coming Soon…',  she shared: 'Andrew and I are overjoyed that our family will be growing in 2018 with the addition of our second child – a baby brother for our little superhero Aaliyah!!!' 

Her thrilling announcement comes after she revealed earlier this month that she would love to have another baby, two years after welcoming her first child.

The celebrated vocalist has two-year-old daughter Aaliyah with New York-born filmmaker Andrew, but admitted she would be open to the prospect of having more children in the near future.  

She told Hello! magazine: 'It's all about timing, but I would really love to have a second child and for Aaliyah to have a sibling, to have a friend in the world.'

Reflecting on motherhood, Katherine admitted she did not expect 'to feel so chilled and relaxed about life' after starting a family. 

'My husband and I love being parents and Aaliyah makes us so happy. She's fun, kind and affectionate – and a mummy's girl,' the Welsh star said. 

In 2016, the blonde beauty revealed to Hello! that welcoming her first child has 'enriched' her and her other half's lives.

The besotted mother gushed: 'She has enriched us as a couple. We both love being a family and don't ever want to be apart from one another. She has completed us. We are a team.'  

'Some people are quick to point out negative things, “You'll never sleep again, you won't have a life”, yes, it has been tiring but it has been amazing.'

'I'm so enjoying having this gorgeous little thing in my life. She is a very sweet, girlie little girl. Very smiley, happy and contented. But she is strong-willed and independent, too. She doesn't need to be fussed over.' 

The opera singer shared news of her pregnancy via Instagram and Twitter in April 2015 by posting a snap of her and her husband Levitas on their wedding day with a pair of baby ballet shoes perched on top of the framed photo. 

Katherine and painter Andrew married in a stunning ceremony at Hampton Court in September 2014, before welcoming their first child, Aaliyah Reign, almost exactly a year later.

The singer and the film director first started dating in 2013, and announced they were engaged after just six months together. 

The singer first started her musical career singing in church choirs and soon won Welsh Choir Girl of the Year.

At 17, she won a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy and moved to London where she landed a £1million Universal Records contract aged 23.
