Brooke Fraser has taken to social media to seemingly announce that she's expecting her first child with her husband Scott Ligertwood.

The Kiwi singer-songwriter posted a photo on Facebook and Instagram this morning showing her cradling a baby bump with Ligertwood holding a picture of a smiley face next to it.

Fans were full of congratulations for Fraser, who is currently on tour in Australia.

"Babies are such a blessing. Congrats Brooke! Get ready for a whole new world," wrote one.


"Something's in the water - congratulations!" wrote another.

Rumours had spread after Fraser cancelled a 10-date nationwide tour across March and April without giving a specific reason why.

A statement released via Fraser's Facebook page said all shows had been cancelled due to "unavoidable scheduling conflicts".

It now seems those conflicts were that the shows coincided with her pregnancy.

At the time, one fan said: "We were speculating re a baby announcement lol."

Fraser has promised to reschedule those cancelled shows.

Ligertwood and Fraser married in 2008. She released her fourth album Brutal Romantic last year.
