    Vanessa Carlton will soon be singing lullabies.

    The singer-songwriter, known for hits like "A Thousand Miles" and "Ordinary Day," announced that she's pregnant via Facebook Thursday. Including a picture of her baby bump, Carlton wrote, "I can now reveal the reason as to why Liberman will not be released until next summer. See the picture below. No, those aren't a bunch of croissants. We're expecting a baby. It's healthy and moving around like a champ."

    "I'm bummed to delay the album because it's so special to me and the perfect combination of England and Tennessee. When I put the record on it feels like medicine. I hope it does the same for due time! Thanks for sticking with me. [My husband] John, [our dog] Victor and I are over the moon," she said. After sharing the news, she tweeted, " Thanks for all the nice vibes you guys are sending our way."

    Carlton and John McCauley wed last year in a ceremony officiated by Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks. In November 2013, Carlton revealed that she'd recently suffered a fallopian pregnancy.

    "This is not considered a viable pregnancy, because the fetus cannot develop and it is a high risk situation for the mother because of the potential for tubal rupture and internal bleeding," she wrote.

    Carlton experienced complications and had to have her entire right fallopian tube surgically removed.

    McCauley flew all night to be by her side in the hospital. "I realize I am a lucky woman on many levels here," the 33-year-old pianist wrote. "Thank you for all your support and understanding through this."
