Christina Perri has revealed that she is pregnant with her "rainbow" baby, just six months after having a miscarriage earlier in the year.

"Carmella is gonna be a big sister !!! our rainbow baby is coming in january," said the 'Jar of Hearts' singer on Saturday (July 11).

Her photo saw Christina's two-year-old daughter Carmella wearing a rainbow T-shirt with the words "big sister to be".

The happy news comes after Christina posted a heartbreaking note about having a miscarriage, just before she and husband Paul Costabile were about announce they were expecting a second child.

"We are shocked and completely heartbroken," she said, adding that she hoped to "help change the story & stigma around miscarriage, secrecy and shame."

She added: "I am so sad but not ashamed. I am ever reminded how amazing and powerful women are at making life and at healing. To all the mothers who have been here and who will be here, I see you and I love you."

Christina Perri is best known for hit singles 'Jar of Hearts' and 'A Thousand Years', and has released three studio albums, including last year's Songs for Carmella: Lullabies & Sing-a-Longs, dedicated to her daughter Carmella.

Congraulations to the couple on their happy news!
