Leona Lewis’ little one! The singer gave birth to her and her husband on July 22. Dennis Jauch’s first baby.
The musician, 37, revealed the happy news via Instagram on Tuesday, August 2, writing, “And then there were three 💗Our little Carmel Allegra arrived 22.7.22 🕊.”
The couple began dating in 2010 and announced their engagement eight years later via social media. “My heart is singing the happiest song it’s ever sung,” the X Factor alum captioned the pair’s proposal pictures in November 2018. “I’m bursting with joy and overcome with emotion that I get to embark on this new adventure with my best friend, my partner in crime, my ride or die!”
The London native went on to write directly to the choreographer, 33, gushing, “I can’t wait to be your wife 🙈 eeeek wife! What?! Argh! Hahahahaha I still can’t believe it 👰🏽 I dreamed you up and you came true. The most caring, kindhearted and inspiring person I’ve had the privilege to know.💕💍✨💒 Now lets go have a big ol’ partyyyyyyyy.”
In July 2002, Lewis and Jauch were married in Italy. Hello! at the time how “full of love” the ceremony was. “It was so special to be able to bring together everyone we love,” the bride told the magazine in 2019. “There were a lot of tears.”
In a subsequent Instagram post, the “Bleeding Love” singer wrote, “I will cherish this day for a lifetime. Nine years ago, this amazing man walked into my life and last weekend we said ‘I do’ surrounded by the people we love. From the family-style dinner in Tuscany to the ceremony in the small chapel, to the all-night dancing and singing, every moment was a gift. I’m so thankful … for the most special day of my life.”
The couple announced their plans to start a family in March. “Can’t wait to meet you in the Summer,” the then-expectant star captioned her baby bump debut at the time.
“Biggest gift I could’ve asked for coming this Summer,” the professional dancer wrote in a post of his own. “You’re one hot a** Mama @leonalewis.” Jauch also commented on his wife’s social media upload, once again calling her a “hot mama.”
The songwriter had a “challenging first trimester,” she told her Instagram followers later that same month, noting that she was “severely ill and unable to leave the house” in the beginning of her pregnancy. The Grammy nominee healed with a river outing “with [her] pups and the bump.”
