Example's wife is pregnant.

The rapper - whose real name is Elliot Gleave - married Australian TV presenter Erin McNaught last year and she's now taken to Twitter to reveal she's expecting their first child.

Alongside an image of her showing off her baby bump in a coral coloured bikini, she wrote: ''So @example and I have been working on a secret project lately and thought it was about time we told you all! (sic).''

The 'One More Day (Stay With Me)' hitmaker - who confessed earlier this year that being married had made him a ''different person'' because he isn't cool anymore - previously revealed he'd lined up as many gigs for this year as possible because he and Erin wanted to start trying for a baby.

He said at the time: ''This year's going to be crazy because I said to my manager at the end of last year, and my agent, just fill up this year with gigs because I know Erin's going to want kids soon.''

The 32-year-old star will likely be by Erin's side when she gives birth to their son or daughter as he confessed that was why he was planning on taking a break from touring after this year.

He added: ''I figured I don't want to be abroad whilst ... I don't wanna miss the birth of a child, you know...''
