Sam revealed: ‘I’m scared every day that I’ll lose the baby. It’s a horrible feeling so I need reassurance. I’ve been there before and I know how hard it is.’

Sam previously lost a baby four years ago. The baby was her son Tommy’s twin.

‘As soon as I found out I was pregnant I wanted to see for myself that my baby was OK. When I heard a heartbeat the first time it was a massive relief.’

The singer has been attending a private clinic to keep a close watch on her unborn baby.

She told The Mirror:‘I have signed up to a clinic where I can go in whenever I like to check everything’s OK. But when I walk in there I’m very nervous. It’s definitely worth it because otherwise I know the worry and stress will get on top of me and start to affect my work. I can’t let that happen. It would be bad for the baby too.’

The 36-year-old star, who is mum to son Tommy (4) and daughter Brooke (8), is delighted to be expecting again.

‘Of course it was happy news because I’m going to be a mum again. That’s amazing.’

‘When I found out I was pregnant it was a shock to us both. I was happy, but there was that worry that I was going to miscarry again.’

Sam is currently preparing for The X Factor tour and choreographers have made sure that her dance routines are not too vigorous.

'I’m sure I’ll be OK because I just sing and walk around a little in the show,’ she said.

‘There is nothing strenuous. Everyone knows what I have been through before and they are all looking after me.’

‘I’m pleased that everyone has been so supportive, but if I was made to choose between a baby and my career of course I would chose the baby. My family comes first – and I can’t wait until there are five of us.’
