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!
