British pop singer Jamelia was left terrified after being caught up in California's fourth earthquake last week (begs13JUN05).

The THANK YOU star, who is six months pregnant, was petrified for the safety of her unborn baby after being caught up in the tremors on Thursday night (16JUN05) as she relaxed on a hotel balcony with her soccer star boyfriend DARREN BYFIELD in Los Angeles.

A source says, "She was terrified. It had been a long day and she was unwinding after recording her album.

"Then she suddenly felt the room shaking. Her first thought was for her baby. Luckily, no one was hurt and her boyfriend was there to calm her."

The earthquake measured 6.6 on the Richter scale.
