She posed with her tot in Monaco and wore a pretty green dress, with her hair half tied up in a bun, and black sandals.

The new mum looked adoringly at her baby in the sweet photo.

Alexandra wrote: “wat beteken dat sy nie ekstra op sagte meubels hoef te spandeer nie 34 ? Thank you for all the lovely messages today ?”

The X Factor star has yet to reveal her daughter’s name after struggling to decide on a moniker following her birth.

Sy het vertel Hallo! Magazine last month: “We are still deciding on a name, but we’ve got a few floating around. Ever since I fell pregnant, we’ve affectionately called the baby ‘Grape’. I think some people may have thought that was their name!”

Alexandra met and fell for Darren in May of last year and announced in February that they were expecting.

The West End star, who has had leading roles in Chicago and The Bodyguard since winning Die X-faktor in 2008, recently revealed she is planning to take minimal maternity leave before rejoining the touring production of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat on September 12.

Rather than put her feet up, Alexandra had until recently continued to perform eight shows a week as the stage production’s narrator.

Die sanger, who came runner-up on the BBC’s Kom streng dans in 2017 with pro dancer Gorka Márquez, will later join Julian Clary en Dawn French in Jack And The Beanstalk at the London Palladium in November.

She became a household name after her X Factor winner’s single, a cover of Jeff Buckley’s 1994 song Hallelujah, broke the European record for the most singles sold in 24 ure.

It was 2008’s Christmas No1 and, when Alexandra released her debut album Overcome the next year, she topped the charts again.

The record has since sold over 1million copies and will be released on vinyl for the first time later this year.

Her hits Bad Boys and Start Without You also reached the top spot.
