The rumour mill was right: Ira Losco is pregnant.
Malta’s Eurovision 2016 singer — who has radiated happiness and a natural glow all week — confirmed the news on her Facebook account this morning, timed with Mother’s Day.
“I’m ecstatic that my boyfriend Sean, family and friends are here to support me all the way. To add to all the excitement I’m also celebrating my First Mother’s Day as a mother-to-be,” she wrote.
“Sean Gravina and I are very very happy to finally share this news with you all which some of you might have guessed already.”
“We never thought we would have been so blessed with such beautiful news accompanying this Eurovision experience which has given me so much strength both as an artist and as a private person .
Ira will sing “Walk on Water” during the first semi-final on May 10.
She arrived in Stockholm planning to wear a stunning LED projection dress with dynamic motion tracking.
However, owing to complications during her first rehearsal, she opted to swap the high-tech dress for a more traditional one during her second rehearsal.
