Pregnant Frankie Bridge looks relaxed as she shows off her growing bump in a tight vest while out with pals in London

When she first announced her pregnancy news earlier this year, Frankie Bridge kept her growing figure well and truly under wraps.

But the singer has been showing off her gorgeous blossoming bump on a more regular basis lately.

The 26-year-old Saturdays star stepped out in London with friends on Tuesday to grab a drink, looking as happy and relaxed as could be.

She donned a pair of leggings, showing off her slim pins, and accentuated her burgeoning bump in a form-fitting grey vest top.

The singer kept warm with a slouchy grey cardigan, and also toted on her arm a large black bag. 

Her pals appeared to be dressing with the same colour palette, also wearing shades of black and grey for their casual outfits, which saw them grab refreshments from Starbucks.

Frankie seemed to be going make-up free for her day out, but still looked as pretty as ever and, at one point, protected her eyes from the sun with some oversized shades.

The mother-of-one is expecting her second child with husband Wayne Bridge later this year, a little brother or sister for their one-year-old son Parker. 

And her jaunt on Tuesday came after she shared an adorable picture on Instagram of her husband and their son, taken from the back in their matching coats. 

Frankie and footballer Wayne, 34, announced their baby news at the turn of the new year in early January.

She told her fans on Twitter that their one-year-old son Parker would be expecting a sibling, but she also hastened to add that she was suffering from severe morning sickness. 

It was the same affliction suffered by the Duchess of Cambridge during both of her pregnancies - Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

However, she has been looking a little brighter of late, making several appearances, but her illness meant she had to pull out of appearing in the Strictly Come Dancing tour - she was one of the stars of the latest series of the hit BBC show.

At the time of her big reveal, Frankie posted to her Twitter fans: 'So excited to tell you that Wayne & I are expecting another baby later this year. We cant wait for Parker to have a little brother or sister.'

'Sadly I'm really unwell with my pregnancy and won't be able to take part in the Strictly tour. I'm SO sorry. I was so looking forward to it.

She also said in a statement: 'Wayne and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting our second baby. It is very early days, but we couldn't be happier and Parker will make a wonderful big brother.' 

The former child star - who is reportedly going to give birth in August - also recently spoke out about the pressures of being pregnant, and how she copes with the focus on her weight while expecting a baby.

She told the Sunday People's Love Sunday magazine: 'From the minute you tell people you're pregnant, everyone's saying what you should do.

'Especially in my job, people expect you to stay a size six the whole way through, then get back to normal straight away, and that's not realistic.

'I couldn't care less if I put on four stone with this one, or nothing. You just deal with it.'
