Leona Lewis pushes back her Christmas tour until next year due to her pregnancy

Leona Lewis has announced that she will be pushing back her Christmas tour due to her pregnancy.

The X Factor winner, 37, took to Instagram on Tuesday to apologize to her fans and explain that the dates, which begin in November are too soon after she will have given birth. 

Leona – who is due in the summer – also candidly admitted that she wasn’t sure she was even able to be a mother and was over the moon to be expecting her first child.

‘I didn’t even know if I would be able to be a mum’: Pregnant Leona Lewis shared an emotional post as she is forced to push back her Christmas tour due to expecting her first child 

Alongside a photo of her cradling her blossoming baby bump, she wrote: ‘This is really really difficult for me to express so please bear with me. 

‘I put my all into the shows that I create because I’m so grateful to be able to do what I love and I want you all to have the best experience when you come and see me.

‘Still to this day I’m absolutely blown away that I get to tour and sing for you and I’m so thankful to every one of you that comes out to support me.

‘At the end of last year I found out I was pregnant whilst being on tour which was the best news ever as honestly I didn’t even know if I would be able to be a mum, it’s been quite a journey and although I was suffering horrendous sickness, your energy and smiling faces made every moment of being back on stage so amazing after such a long time away. 

Announcing her decision, she said: ‘This is why it’s so difficult for me to say that I have to put my ‘Christmas, With Love’ tour back to next year. 

‘I’m so excited to be a first-time mum but sadly the dates are now just too close together for me to ensure I will be ready to give you the show and attention you deserve.

Leona recently showed off her growing bump in a black dress as she posed for a radiant shoot – and revealed her baby news with husband Dennis.

They added: ‘They [Leona and Dennis] can’t wait to welcome their new arrival and to become a family of three.’ 

The X Factor winner married choreographer Dennis in a lavish ceremony in Tuscany, Italy, in 2019 after 10 years of dating.

Just one year after tying the knot with Dennis, Leona revealed that she wanted children and said she would like to adopt because of her mother’s experience growing up in a children’s home. 

She told Stella magazine: ‘I do want children, but Dennis and I have also talked about adopting. 

‘My mum grew up in a children’s home. No one adopted her as a child, and I would very much like to adopt.

‘But I’m still figuring things out. If it was up to my husband, we would have had kids yesterday.’

In 2013, Leona said that she had always wanted to get married in her 20s but then realised that she was ‘not ready’ when she reached her late 20s.
