We have our THIRD set of candids from Rachel for this year. A pregnant Rachel Stevens was spotted toting around her beautiful daughter whilst out for lunch today. We’ve added some pictures from earlier today and are in the process of getting more. So watch this space. Here goes the accompanying article.
Former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Rachel Stevens has stepped out for the first time since announcing that she is pregnant with her second child. The 35-year-old star, who announced the news two days ago, toted her two-year-old daughter Amelie as she met friends for lunch at a North London branch of Pizza East, where she candidly discussed her plans for the new arrival. Dressed in blue, stonewash jeans and a leather jacket, the mother-of-one looked balanced and healthy, with just the tiniest hint of a bump.
Teaming her look with studded black loafers, Rachel toned down her make-up and went for a fresh-faced look for the outing. Rachel and actor husband Alex Bourne will welcome their baby into the world in early 2014 and say they ‘can’t wait’ to meet their little bundle of joy.And apparently Amelie is particularly excited about being 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.’
Former Strictly Come Dancing star and S Club 7 singer, Rachel Stevens (35), and her husband Alex Bourne (36) today announced that they are expecting their second child.
The announcement was made via Rachel’s official website where the couple, who married four years ago and have a daughter, Amelie, posted an image of their family’s birth years chalked underneath their shoes which included the addition of a fourth member.
In a joint statement, Rachel and Alex said; “We’re 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 younger brother or sister.
Rachel has posted a blog on her official website where she talks Victoria Beckham, New York Fashion Week, and London Fashion Week!
Being a big fan of fashion, I’m excited that it’s the start of the shows again! I’ve been keeping my eye on the New York Fashion Week catwalk updates and already, in my head, I’ve started planning my shopping trips and outfits for next season!
Victoria Beckham’s Spring Summer ’14 show earlier this week was a favourite for me. She’s achieved huge credibility with her collections, is a great role model and a hard working Mum and I love the fact that she surprised everyone with new shapes and a more relaxed style and got great reviews to boot – and yes, seeing her gorgeous little girl sat FROW was very cute too!
She was also pictured in that beautiful Burberry, heart shirt recently which I love – I’ve got my eye on the beautiful heart bag too …
Not long now until the shows hit London and everyone will be whipped into a fashion frenzy. I’m counting down the days!
Tis the season for new Rachel pictures <3
Thirteen long years ago today (September 11) one of my PERSONAL favorite songs in S Club history. ‘Natural’ was released on September 11, 2000. The song is an English adaption of the French song Tous Les Maux D’Amour performed by Norma Ray her version of the song can be heard by clicking here. The song proved to be a hit single for S Club coming in at #3 in the UK Charts.
Natural was released as the second single off of “7″, and became the only single released by S Club 7 to not have main vocals given to Jo O’Meara. It features the b-side “If This Is Love” and was even released as the first single off of “7″ in America.

Here’s a random Interview from Express with Rachel describing a typical weekend.
Singer Rachel Stevens topped the charts with hits such as Don’t Stop Movin’ and Reach as part of pop group S Club 7.
She later found success as a solo artist, with the single Sweet Dreams My LA Ex reaching number two in the charts. In 2008 she finished in second place on Strictly Come Dancing. Rachel, 35, lives in north London with her husband Alex, 36, and two-year-old daughter, Amelie.
“On a Friday night, Alex and I tend to stay in after Amelie has gone to bed at 7pm and just chill out. if we are lucky, one of Amelie’s grannies will take her for an overnight stay, so we can go out to dinner or see friends and have a lie-in the next day. Both our families live close by which is handy.
“Saturday is very much ‘entertain Amelie day’. We will either go to parties with her friends, or take her to Hampstead heath for a walk or to a park to play. in the afternoon when she is napping, I may catch up with my reading, or online shopping, which is always dangerous! I’m interested in moving into fashion design, so I love keeping up with trends and studying magazines for the latest must-haves.
“On Saturday night we may stay in – alex is the cook and I help him with the preparation. we are both foodies and love trying out new restaurants, so if we have the chance we will go out for dinner. Benares in mayfair is very good.
“On Sunday morning we tend to go out to brunch and either meet friends at a cafe near Hampstead or just hang out with Amelie. in the afternoon, we regularly have Sunday tea parties for the family.
“In the evening, I like to just relax with a box set, such as Breaking Bad, or a movie.”
Rachel Stevens is a WaterAid ambassador and has collaborated with ethical water company Belu, which gives 100 per cent of profits to WaterAid.
In support of Wateraid Rachel has vowed to carry a melon everyday for the next six days and challenges us to do the same. Here’s Rachels bit in her latest blog entry over at the official website!!
This week, WaterAid’s partner, ethical bottled water company, Belu, is challenging the British public to following in the footsteps of Dirty Dancing’s ‘Baby’ (what’s not to like about that!?) and to carry a watermelon – for six days! – to celebrate World Water Week, September 1-6 2013.
They’re asking us all to adopt a watermelon for the week and ask your friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor you for taking part! They can help you welcome your melons into your lives and you can take it on your daily commute, to the shops or even out for dinner – the choices are endless;) – just make sure you tweet them to me and to @WaterAidUK so we can see what you’re up to!
There’s a reason for this and that is to raise awareness of issues faced by the millions of people all over the world who still live without access to safe, clean water and have to walk miles every day, putting themselves and their families at risk, just so that they have this basic need. I witnessed people in Ethiopia first who were doing this every day and was genuinely moved by what I saw and committed myself to helping them. One lady in particular, my age, with 8 children – Ajame – really touched me and asked me to help her … so here I am. I may be carrying more watermelons as the week go by and hope that you will do the same.
Earlier this morning Rachel posted her melon hard at work.
Look out for our melon on our Twitter beginning tomorrow @RStevensCom. Tweet us yours as well!!
I’d like to welcome you to the latest version of RachelStevens.com – Your premier source for every little thing Rachel Stevens.

In addition to the new look, we’ve edited some of the pages and decided to integrate more of S Club’s history into the mix. S Club was a big part of Rachel’s life and for to long we’ve overlooked that aspect, but why? Tell us what you think we’d LOVE to hear from you!
