Blue hunk Duncan James was overjoyed yesterday (22NOV04) when his ex-girlfriend told him they were expecting a baby girl.

The ALL RISE singer, 26, was thrilled when his former lover, known only as CLAIRE, told him a scan showed she would give birth to the star's first daughter in April (05).

A close friend says, "Duncan is so excited. He was almost in tears when he found out. He hasn't stopped smiling and has been on a constant high.

"It was Claire who wanted to find out what sex the baby is so she can start planning things ahead. When she was told by doctors she was delighted and phoned Duncan straight away."
