Jodi shows off her baby bump08/08/2011 22:24
PREGNANT Jodi Albert cradles her baby bump during a sunshine break with her Westlife singer husband.
The brunette — who shot to fame on Hollyoaks — jetted away on holiday to Ibiza shortly after announcing she was expecting her first child with Kian Egan last week.
Squeezing her growing belly into a tiny white bikini, Jodi looked radiant as she emerged from the pool after a quick dip.
She then joined the Irish crooner for a spot of sunbathing on a posh leather bed.
A holiday onlooker said: “They seemed very much in love and were quite chatty to fans who recognised them around the hotel pool.
“They seemed like a very close and happy couple.
“Kian was very attentive and you can just make out the her bump now.”
Last night Jodi Tweeted about the baby’s movements.
She wrote: “Daddy bear just felt our baby kick for the first time…ahh see baby i told ya ! @KianEganWL yay!!!”
The delighted pair, who have been married for two years, broke the big news to their thousands of Twitter fans last week.
Dad-to-be Kian, 31, wrote: “Myself and my wife @JodiWonderland are delighted to say we are expecting our first baby! We are so happy and cannot wait to be parents.”
Jodi posted a similar Tweet before telling the Irish Sun: “We are so happy and excited to be having our first baby. We are thrilled to bits and can’t wait to be parents.
“This is the biggest moment of our lives and we’re over the moon.”
Gorgeous Jodi, now 28, whose girl group Wonderland is managed by Kian, previously said in March that kids were not on the radar.
She said at the time: “I’m only 27 and I don’t necessarily feel ready for children – and neither does Kian.
“We want to take this time to be successful and, when the time is right, we’ll have a family and we can look back and be proud of what we did.”
A source close to the pair said they were looking forward to starting a family and planning to take time off when the new bundle arrives.
Westlife’s Mark Feehily, who is the only member of the group without children, revealed he couldn’t wait to be an ‘uncle’.
Kian and Jodi met while she was touring with her previous group, Girl Thing, and they married in a spectacular ceremony on Turtle Beach in the Caribbean in May 2009, after five years together.
