Bobby Brown's wife is four months pregnant, it has been claimed.

The singer married second wife Alicia Etheredge in June 2012. And according to TMZ, the couple are now expecting their second child together.

While the news is yet to be confirmed by the 46-year-old, the outlet claims Bobby is in emotional turmoil over the revelation as it comes soon after his daughter Bobbi Kristina was found face down in a bathtub.

The 21-year-old, who is the offspring from Bobby's marriage to late singer Whitney Houston, was found unconscious on Saturday. She is currently fighting for her life and Bobby has constantly been next to his daughter's side.

TMZ reports that Bobby and Alicia have shared the news as they sit vigil for Bobbi Kristina, whose brain function has reportedly dangerously diminished.

If his wife is pregnant, the baby would be Bobby's sixth child. As well as Bobbi Kristina, he has sons Landon and Robert Barisford Brown, Jr. and daughter LaPrincia from a previous relationship, and son Cassius, five, with Alicia.

The former New Edition star has been struggling to deal with the latest development in his family's life, say those close to him.

"He's so upset. He can hardly put one foot in front of the other," a family source told People magazine.

"The swelling [in her brain] has gone down. The doctor says that that by itself isn't the smoking gun that she's getting better, but it's still a good sign. But she's still not reacting."

Bobby previously asked the media for privacy in a statement, adding; "Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time."
