Former JLS star Oritsé Williams is to become a father.

The 'She Makes Me Wanna' singer and his girlfriend Aimee Jade Azari announced their happy news by posting a photo of them together on Twitter, where she can be seen clutching her heavily pregnant stomach.

Aimee captioned the picture: ''Xxxxx @Oritse and our lil legend xxx love u (sic)''

Oritsé's former bandmate Marvin Humes was quick to send his well wishes.

He tweeted: ''Huge congrats to @Oritse and @AJAzari the Williams baby is on the way!!! Very excited for you both! Big love.(sic)''

Marvin is himself the father of one-year-old daughter Alaia-Mai with his wife Rochelle. JLS member Jonathan 'JB' Gill is also expecting with his wife Chloe Tangney, leaving just Aston Merrygold out of the band to embark on fatherhood.

Oritsé, 27, started dating Aimee in summer 2012 after he managed her girl band, Vida.

Previously speaking about their relationship, he has said: ''I'm lucky to be with such a beautiful and talented person. Right know we're just enjoying the ride. We're like Bonnie and Clyde. She's been phenomenal. I'm so lucky and fortunate.''
