The 'Britain's Got Talent' star, who suffered heartache earlier this year when she lost her baby boy just two months before giving birth, took to Twitter today to announce she is expecting another baby.

The 40-year-old tweeted: "Lexi [her five-year-old daughter]'s question of the day(and most days) "Mama when are you going to get a baby in your tummy?"Happy to say TODAY Lexi!Mama is pregnant!Yay"

And she revealed she was feeling mixed emotions this time around, confessing: "OMG! Am overwhelmed with all your tweets! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!! Am thrilled and terrified all rolled into one!"

[he Shrek star posted a full statement on her website, revealing she was "beyond delighted" at being a mum-to-be again.

She wrote: "The first half of this year has been unbelievably difficult for us and so we are beyond delighted to share this news with you."

And she told fans she'd be bowing out of her role as Princess Fiona early to make sure she got enough rest ahead of the birth (very sensible we reckon).

Amanda added: "My first priority is of course my family. I will therefore be adjusting one of my professional commitments accordingly.

"Due to its physical content this means I will end my contract with Shrek The Musical eight weeks early. I will endeavour to continue the show until the 3rd October.

"I do however ask you to bear with me as I will be putting myself and this pregnancy first. I have taken medical advice and although I am a strong girl and this is 'once again' a good healthy pregnancy I will absolutely not be taking any risks.

"Your ongoing support for us this year has been so touching. We are enormously grateful.  Thank you so much for your understanding. Amanda xxxxxx"

Amanda suffered a shocking miscarriage back in May, just two months before she was due to give birth.
