Leona Lewis and her husband Dennis Jauch have welcomed their first child.

The Bleeding Love singer revealed on Instagram on Wednesday that she and Dennis had become parents to a baby daughter named Carmel Allegra on 22 July.

"And then there were three (heart emoji) Our little Carmel Allegra arrived 22.7.22," she wrote beside a photo of her and Dennis placing their hands on the newborn, whose face is only partially revealed.

Leona also shared a similar image - a close-up snap of her holding the baby - on her Instagram Stories and added a white heart emoji followed by "Carmel 22.7.22."

The X Factor U.K. winner received congratulatory messages in the comments from the likes of Jessie J, Keri Hilson and Michelle Visage.

The 37-year-old confirmed reports suggesting she was pregnant back in March by showing off her growing baby bump in a figure-hugging black dress.

"Can't wait to meet you in the Summer," she wrote in the Instagram caption.

Leona and Dennis, a dancer and choreographer, married in 2019 after nine years of dating.
