    Rachel Platten is expecting her second child

    The ‘Fight Song’ hitmaker and her husband Kevin Lazan are set to welcome their second child into the world, Rachel has announced on Instagram


    Alongside a picture of herself debuting her baby bump, she wrote: "Here's the other half of what I've been creating this year. Baby #2 coming in hot. This was a hard secret to keep (sic)”

    The 39-year-old singer and her husband are already parents to two-year-old daughter Violet Skye, and recently celebrated 10 years of marriage in July.

    Posting a sweet tribute to Kevin on social media at the time of their anniversary, Rachel wrote: “My best friend, my soulmate, my biggest champion, my solid ground, the absolute love of my life. Kevin, you are the funniest person I’ve ever met, you are the the smartest, the sexiest, silliest, steadiest, kindest, loyalist, funnest. You are my secret weapon, my shoulder to cry on, my whole entire world. I love the life we’ve built. I love watching you be the most loving dad to violet. I love the lessons we’ve learned. I love the ups and i love the downs.

    “I love who you were 15 years ago when we first met and i loved you 10 years ago when we said i do, and honestly i love you even more now. Ours is a true love story written in the stars. Thank you sweet husband for everything. Happy anniversary. (sic)”

    And Rachel opened up last month about her struggles with “mom guilt”, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic has made her realise how much time she usually spends away from her daughter.

    But the singer is learning to have more “grace” for herself, as she said she wants to show her toddler “this example of being a boss”.

    She said: "I don't know what it is - but the amount of time I've been home and not touring and available for Violet this year were GLORIOUS. But it's such a stark contrast to how much I'm able to be there when my career gets busy and now, as it starts to pick up again and i see what life might look like soon, it just makes me feel sad and GUILTY.

    “And then wise little violet picks up on my anxiety and clings and needs me MORE. And then comes more guilt because my career also needs me. And then there's all those feelings of not-enough of me to go around mixed with the guilt and it's honestly a f'ing brutal cocktail. Wahhh.

    “I want to have grace for myself as i try to juggle it all. I wouldn't talk to a friend this way and i am sick of how I've been talking to myself. (sic)”
