#SocialBite: Melanie Fiona Announces She's Pregnant

Music Matters star posts baby bump to IG.

After conquering the merits of being a successful singer over the past decade, Melanie Fiona is moving into another rite of passage. Motherhood.

The Canadian-born songstress took to Instagram late Thursday to announce her first child with boyfriend Jared Cotter. The announcement came through a video where she revealed her baby hump accompanied by her single “I Want It All.”

“The greatest power a person possesses is the power to choose,” she wrote in the post’s caption. “The only thing greater is being chosen. Thank you for choosing us. Jared and I are thrilled to become Parents. #IWantItAll #Motherhood #Love #ChooseHigher #Awake xo.”

O CANADA! CANADIAN BORN SINGERS

Judging by Melanie’s size, it looks like she’s pretty far along with the pregnancy. Cotter also took to the social media site to let everyone know the news.

“We are so excited for this next chapter of our lives!” he captioned while posting the same video. “There is no greater blessing, and I’m so happy to go on this journey with my best friend and love of my life. I’m gonna be a Dad!!! Thank you for choosing us. I promise we won’t let you down. I love you.”
