British singer Julia Fordham is set for a great 2005 after announcing she's going to become a first-time mum.

The HAPPY EVER AFTER singer, who now lives in Los Angeles, is expecting a child at the end of May (05).

In a new email to fans, she writes, "My boyfriend and I are so thrilled."

Meanwhile, Fordham has also signed up with America's JET BLUE airlines to show her first live DVD, THAT'S LIVE, as part of the in-flight entertainment.

Travellers will be able to view the concert, which was filmed at Los Angeles' House Of Blues in the summer (04), throughout January (05). Afterwards, it will be released on DVD.

Fordham admits she's thrilled with the finished film: "It really did turn out great, it looks lovely and sounds fab. And, most importantly, my hair looks immaculate!"
