The 'Only Love Can Hurt Like This' - who is expecting her second child with her husband Leyman Lahcine - has insisted she will not go outside again before her family becomes four.

Taking to her Instagram account, she wrote: "My anxiety is through the roof ... Some people I knew approached me in the park yesterday as I was taking my little one for a walk for some exercise and I felt like I was going to break down into tears begging them not to come near as I scrambled to put both our masks on. They were so kind and empathetic and kept away but I vowed that would be the last time I step outside my house again until the baby is born."

And the 39-year-old singer has made her decision as she feels "so much worry" for her family and admitted she was at "breaking point" after the incident.

She added: "I couldn’t help thinking about all the effort that goes into trying to conceive a child through IVF. Together with all the worry in vitro that it’s safe and doing well, then with this pandemic on top. I feel responsible not just for the baby in my tummy, but my four-year-old too. Like if something was to happen to me how would she ever recover? I have so much worry and so much responsibility on my shoulders I was at breaking point yesterday. I had to have a nap because I had exhausted myself so much. Even the 5 chocolates I crammed in my face when I got in didn’t help (anxiety eating) … I’m also worried about going into the hospital and catching it there too. I just bought some n99 masks but does that mean if I stay in the hospital for a week like last time, because we were both so ill, that I will have to wear a mask the entire time and sleep in it also? No amount of mindfulness is going to reverse this! (sic)"
