A Thousand Miles singer Vanessa Carlton has delayed the release of her new album Liberman because she's pregnant with her first child.
The star informed fans on social media on Thursday (26Jun14), posting a photo of her bulging baby belly in silhouette.
She wrote, "I can now reveal the reason as to why Liberman will not be released until next summer. See the picture below. No, those aren't a bunch of croissants. We're expecting a baby.
"It's healthy and moving around like a champ. I'm bummed to delay the album because it's so special to me and the perfect combination of England and Tennessee. When I put the record on it feels like medicine. I hope it does the same for you... in due time!"
The baby news comes seven months after the singer wed Deer Tick frontman John MCCauley during a ceremony officiated by Fleetwood Mac star Stevie Nicks in Arizona.
Carlton suffered from complications from what turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy last year (13), and was forced to cancel tour dates.
Announcing the news on her Facebook.com page in early November (13), the singer revealed she was diagnosed after a concert in October (13), revealing, "It was a fallopian pregnancy (the embryo settled in my tube, which is the width of a straw). This is not considered a viable pregnancy because the fetus cannot develop, and it is a high-risk situation for the mother because of the potential for tubal rupture and internal bleeding."
In the candid Facebook post, the 33-year-old star revealed her right fallopian tube had to be surgically removed.
