Singer Amy Lee Pregnant with first child

Los Angeles: Evanescence singer Amy Lee and her therapist husband Josh Hartzler are going to be parents for the first time.

The rock singer took to Twitter to announce the news, reported Ace Showbiz.

"Ok I can`t keep it a secret anymore - I`ve been working on a very special new project for 2014 - a baby. Josh and I are expecting! I`m so happy," Lee posted.

Lee and her therapist husband got married in 2007.

The singer earlier this month recorded a score with composer Dave Eggar for a movie called `War Story`.

"It`s going to surprise my fans. It`s not what you`d expect; the film is very dark, very introspective. There`s not even a lot of dialogue, which is great, because to me it makes this beautiful, sad platform for music," she said of the new music.
