The 'Super Duper Love' hitmaker has confirmed she and her partner Cody are expecting a baby together.

Speaking on her A Cuppa Happy podcast, she said: "Guess what? I am going to have a little baby, too! I am so excited to talk to you [influencer Ella Mills; her guest] because I don’t know many pregnant women. I am week 17 and I just stopped being sick all the time."

And Joss admits she is already "really terrified" of giving birth.

She added: "I woke up in the middle of the night, randomly, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m really scared.’ I just got really terrified of having to push it out."

Meanwhile, Joss confessed she considered arranged marriage because she "couldn't find" a man.

Speaking about reality shows which focus on matchmaking, she said: "When it goes well, it's lovely and so romantic. It can be hilarious but awful [if people do it for the wrong reasons]. But sometimes they really are in love, and I always want it to work out ... When it goes well, it's lovely and so romantic. I love romance: I've also started watching Indian Matchmaker. I considered arranged marriages before I met Cody, because I couldn't find a man."

Joss remains fairly quiet about her love life but in 2016, when she was dating Si Chai, she admitted she wasn't rushing to have children any time soon.

Asked if she was feeling broody, she said: "God no. It's a beautiful thing if you want kids, but I couldn't do it right now. If and when I want them, great, I'll go for it. But not now. The world is overpopulated anyway - none of us actually needs to have children."
