Sheridan Smith confirms she is expecting her first child with a sweet on stage announcement

Actress Sheridan Smith has confirmed she is expecting her first child with fiancé Jamie Horn with a sweet on stage announcement.

The singer and TV star confirmed the news as she performed to audience members during a recent show on a cruise ship for the Floating Festivals event.

Standing on stage and stroking her small pregnancy bump, the performing mum-to-be told the audience, “I’ve got a baby on board.”

Sheridan also confessed that she had been suffering from “morning sickness lark” and explained that she had ditched her high heels so that she could easily run off stage to be sick during shows.

“I’ve got buckets in each wing and trainers so I can run,” she added.
