Joss Stone has announced she is 17 weeks pregnant with her first child.

Joss said: ‘Guess what? I am going to have a little baby! I am so excited to talk to you [Ella Mills] because I don’t know many pregnant women.’

‘I am week 17 and I just stopped being sick all the time.’

Of her labor fears, she said: ‘My boyfriend kept saying to me, “Pain is temporary”. 

‘Temporary, it is temporary! Oh my God it is horrible! Leave me alone! I am just going to cry!

‘I woke up in the middle of the night – randomly – and I was like: “Oh my god I am really scared!” I just got really terrified of having to push it out!’ 

The singer recently admitted she was close to resorting to an arranged marriage because she couldn’t find love.

The Super Duper Love songstress has previously dated men in the music industry but said before her current partner she ‘couldn’t find a man’.

Joss said she has been inspired by watching reality TV shows about matchmaking and says ‘when it goes well, it’s lovely and so romantic’.

The star added that she loved 90 Day Fiance which is ‘hilarious’ but awful’ as people can be on the show for the wrong reasons.

She said: ‘Sometimes they really are in love, and I always want it to work out. When it goes well, it’s lovely and so romantic. I love romance: I’ve also started watching Indian Matchmaker.

‘I considered arranged marriages before I met Cody, because I couldn’t find a man.’

It is unclear how long Joss and Cody have been dating. Information about their romance, and indeed, the man himself, is sparse.

Earlier this month Joss shared an ‘accent challenge’ video with Cody, who is American. In it she said: ‘Okay so I said, I really like mashed potato and this is what Cody heard.’

The camera panned across to Cody driving as he mimicked Joss’ accent.  

Joss was branded ‘deluded’ and ‘tone deaf’ by angry Good Morning Britain viewers recently, after she declared ‘happiness is a choice’ from the comfort of her luxury home in the Bahamas.

The multi-millionaire singer was slammed for being ‘out of touch’, ‘patronising’ and ‘entitled’ as show fans vented their fury on Twitter after her video-link live from the Caribbean.

Joss said: ‘We have a lot of opportunity to be happy and we don’t always take it.  

‘Every person I’ve spoken to so far [on the podcast] has flagged that we have choice, and I don’t think everybody truly feels that way – I think some people genuinely feel that they don’t have it. And that is a total myth’

She added: ‘We do have choice in mostly every direction, unless we’re enslaved and someone’s taken that choice away from you, or you’re in prison and you don’t have a choice to walk outside. 

‘But, mentally, we have little choices that we make as we walk along in this life, and that is for every single person. That’s comforting, really. It’s very freeing.’ 

In 2012, Joss was said to be the fifth richest British singer under 30 with an estimated net worth of £10 million.

As well as her music career, Joss is also close friends to Prince Harry and attended his royal wedding to Meghan Markle in 2018.

The singer has been friends with both the Duke of Sussex, 35, and Prince William for years due to her humanitarian work. She was also a guest at the Duke of Cambridge’s wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011.  

The singer grew up in a sprawling rural converted farmhouse in Devon and she is reported to have bought the property at just 18 after her parents split. 

Her father, Richard Stoker, is said to run a ‘successful fruit and nut import-export business’ claims the Telegraph.

While her mother, Wendy Joseph, rented out guest houses on the family’s former estate.
