With the lack of anything else to update about, Lets take a trip down memory lane.
Fourteen years ago (1999) today S Club made their way into the music scene with their debut album S Club, The track featured a mixture of pop-songs that made people feel good about life. From the uplifting “Bring It All Back” to the song that got everybody dancing to the S Club beat “S Club Party”. There are alot of true pop gems on the album, but who could forget the Rachel Stevens’ led “Everybody Wants Ya” and “I Really Miss You”. The many songs featured on this album were featured in the band’s first television series “S Club 7 in Miami”. The album sold over 500,000 copies in America and 600,000 copies in the UK.
Not only was the beginning of S Club marked on this glorious day, but Rachel Stevens decided to release her fourth single on this day nine years ago (2004). A remixed version of “More More More” was released and became a smash thanks to the help of Sky Sports coming in at #3 in the UK Charts. The song originally recorded by Andrea True Connection in 1976 and came in at #5 in the UK charts it was released as the final single out of the ‘Funkydory’ era, and became the highest charting version released (Bananarama also released a version in 1993 and charted at @24). The song featured “Fools (Princess Diaries 2 Version)” and the smash b-side (that should have been a single) “Shoulda Thought Of That”.

The album spawned the singles “Sweet Dreams My L.A. Ex” and “Funkydory”, as well as a scrapped third single “Breathe In, Breathe Out”. The album was later rereleased to feature two additional tracks “Some Girls” and “More More More”, plus the reworked (scrapped) version of “Breathe In, Breathe Out”.

Once again, Rachel & Alex were spotted today walking in Mayfair. This is possibly Rachel and Alex on their way to meet up with Monsta Management (As Rachel tweeted she had an exciting meeting with!!). These pictures will be a little more difficult for me to get but i’ll do my best! Here’s the article!
She has recently announced the happy news that she is expecting her second child. And Rachel Stevens displayed her first hint of a baby bump as she enjoyed a stroll in London’s Mayfair on Monday with her actor husband Alex Bourne. The 35-year-old singer looked radiant wearing a casual monochrome casual outfit of a striped T-shirt, black trousers and black flats.
She wore her highlighted blonde hair loose and also sported a light tan. The former S Club 7 star is set to welcome her new baby into the world in early 2014.
Announcing the happy news via her official website last week, Rachel said: ‘I’ve got some very exciting news to share with you today… ‘Alex and I are so happy to find out that we are pregnant again and can’t wait to meet our new little member of the family early next year. ‘Needless to say, we’re all super excited, especially Amelie who is looking forward to meeting her new little brother or sister.’
Rachel and Alex tied the knot in a romantic ceremony at London’s Claridges’ Hotel in August 2009, and the star made no secret of the fact that the couple were keen to become parents. Before welcoming Amelie into the world in November 2010, she said: ‘We’d absolutely love to have children. I think having children is the most amazing thing. I don’t think I can tell what kind of mum I’d be until I go through it. It’s such a life-changing thing. Since becoming a mother, the former Strictly Come Dancing star explained she has come to realise that no matter how hard she works, not everything in life is always going to be perfect.
Earlier this year, she said in an interview with the MailOnline: ‘The first three months of having a newborn baby was a complete shock to the system. ‘I’m a bit of a control freak but suddenly I had no idea what I was doing. I remember having an absolute meltdown when Amelie had been crying all day. ‘Taking time out for motherhood has shown me a lot about how life isn’t about being perfect. It’s about being yourself.’ The couple have already been inundated with well-wishes from Rachel’s celebrity chums, with Kimberley Walsh leading the way, tweeting: ‘@MsRachelStevens yay! So happy for you both. Congratulations!’
Rachel, Amelie, and Hubby Alex (Whom recently rejoined Twitter), were spotted out doing a bit of shopping on September 21, I’ve added some MQ Tagged pictures, they will be replaced within the next day or so, but for now enjoy!
She only recently announced her pregnancy, but Rachel Stevens has already started nesting. The 35 year-old singer was spotted shopping in North London’s Hampstead with her husband, Alex Bourne, and their daughter, Amelie. Wearing an all-black outfit to minimise her baby bump, the former S Club 7 performer looked chic and sensible – with just a white collar to add contrast. She teamed the look with flat shoes and nude make-up.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t the perfect family outing – the singer was slapped with an expensive parking ticket for violating Hampstead’s strict regulations. But, for the most part, the star took it in her stride…clearly being too busy focusing on her future arrival.
The young family will welcome their new arrival in early 2014 and admit they ‘can’t wait’. Amelie, who is just three years old, is said to be particularly excited about becoming a big sister for the first time.
Rachel announced the news via social networking sites and quickly received congratulations from a number of celebrity friends, including Kimberley Walsh who tweeted: ‘@MsRachelStevens yay! So happy for you both. Congratulations!’
The former S Club 7 singer accompanied the delighted post with an adorable snap of the family’s trainers lined up in a row alongside their years of birth, with a special space at the end for their new arrival next year.
This time around she appreciates that she’ll be better prepared. Earlier this year she said in an interview with the Mail: ‘The first three months of having a newborn baby was a complete shock to the system.
‘I’m a bit of a control freak but suddenly I had no idea what I was doing. I remember having an absolute meltdown when Amelie had been crying all day.
‘I think all mums go through that. All you hear about motherhood is how amazing it is – and it is amazing – but no one tells you how hard it is. It’s so overwhelming.’
Rachel and Alex tied the knot in a romantic ceremony at London’s Claridges’ Hotel in August 2009. At the time the star made no secret of wanting to become parents.
Before welcoming Amelie into the world in November 2010, she said: ‘We’d absolutely love to have children. I think having children is the most amazing thing. I don’t think I can tell what kind of mum I’d be until I go through it. It’s such a life-changing thing.’
