Irish star has something she’s ‘Gotta Tell You’!


We were huge Samantha Mumba fans back in the day, so we were delighted to hear that there is a mini Mumba on the way!

The Gotta Tell You singer announced the news last night on Twitter by posting a snap of her baby scan with the caption “IT’S A GIRL!!!”

Samantha has been married to Torray Scales, a former policeman, since 2012. The couple live in LA as Mumba is focusing on her movie career, but when she came home earlier this year for a visit, she was amazed at often she got asked about whether or not she was planning any children:

“It's weird. My life in LA has been very normal and private but since I've come home, all of a sudden, that's all I'm being asked about.

"It's actually a very personal question when you think about it. For all anybody knows, I can't have children or maybe we're already trying or maybe we've lost a kid; you just never know.

"It's kind of shocking to be asked it but I think that when someone gets married, it's automatically the next question."

Well, at least she won’t have to deal with those questions anymore!

Samantha is well practiced in being a mum as her husband Torray has a 10-year-old son called Mason, who she takes on a motherly role with: "If he's sick and he needs a hug and he needs me to baby him, then that's what I'm going to do.”

We have a feeling she’s going to be a great mum – congratulations! Now, time to dig out that old Samantha Mumba album – it's a classic!
