Pop star announces happy baby news… on stage!


Busted singer Charlie Simpson just couldn't hold in his happy news last night!

The star was on stage during a solo gig at London's Assembly Hall last night when he announced to the audience that he was soon to become a father.

Charlie and his wife Anna Barnard are expecting their first child together after getting married last June.

The former Busted frontman's management company revealed the happy news on Twitter writing, "Just announced he's going to be a dad for the first time! Congratulations @charliesimo!! The crowd couldn't have cheered louder!"

Although he is now on civil terms with his Busted band mates Matt Willis and James Bourne, Charlie revealed last year that they didn't speak for six or seven years after the group split in 2005, a feud which many believe was linked to Charlie's choice to focus on his other band, Fightstar.

It was only when the possibility of a Busted/McFly supergroup arose that the boys began to talk again – though it's rumoured Charlie accepted a six figure sum to let the McBusted group launch without him.

"I hadn't spoken to them for a long time, about six or seven years and they rang me and told me they wanted to do that [start a supergroup] and we’re kind of speaking again now, which is really nice, and almost rebuilding our relationship so I’m pleased," said Charlie.

Whatever about his career, Charlie definitely has a VERY exciting 2015 ahead! Congrats to him and Anna!
