Natalie Imbruglia has given birth to her first child, a baby boy she has named Max Valentine.

The 44-year-old 'Torn' singer took to social media to share her exciting announcement.

Natalie posted a snap of her holding Max’s hand to her 323,000 Instagram followers.

“What an AMAZING team. I have been busy writing for the past year and a half and can’t wait to share these new songs with you all!!!!

“And as you can see from the pic.. there is another announcement... (no I haven’t swallowed a watermelon).

I’m very happy to announce that I have just signed a record deal with BMG!! What an AMAZING team. I have been busy writing for the past year and a half and can’t wait to share these new songs with you all!!!! And as you can see from the pic.. there is another announcement... (no I haven’t swallowed a watermelon). I’m expecting my first child this Autumn. For those of you that know me, this has been something I have wanted for a very long time and I’m blessed that this is possible with the help of IVF and a sperm donor-I won’t be saying anything more on that publicly. I’m so excited about this next adventure... a new album and I’m going to be a mum! 🎶🤰🏻🎉😍❤️✨
