SHE may be counting down to B Day, but Dubliner Imelda May showed no sign in Paris last night of putting her feet up just yet.

The 37-year-old Liberties singer, who is six months pregnant, performed a full set as part of her Mayhem tour, having played a stormer in prestigious London’s Royal Albert Hall last week.

“There’s a little bit more of me tonight,” the singer joked with the audience as she proudly showed off her bump, draped in a figure-hugging, hot-red dress with leopard-print bodice.

However, her impending rockabilly baby doesn’t hinder the Dubliner’s performance one iota who was joined on stage throughout by her guitarist husband Darrel Higham.

The couple, who are married ten years, announced in February that they are expecting a baby.

Apart from a craving for oranges, the Liberty Belle has had a smooth pregnancy and has pledged to continue touring during her pregnancy.

She has played dates across the UK in recent weeks with sold out performances in Cardiff, Nottingham and Gateshead as well as the Royal Albert Hall.

She must be hoping not to go early, as she is due to play Cork’s Marquee on June 9 and Derry on June 21st.
