Cerys Matthews and her husband Seth Riddle at their wedding
The west Wales singer, who married Nashville producer Seth Riddle at a Pembrokeshire chapel in February, is said to have told friends she is delighted with the news.
She has been in London during the past week promoting her new album Cock-a-Hoop, which is due out next month.
A friend is reported as saying: "This is a very happy and exciting time for Cerys - her life has changed completely.
"After Catatonia split she was rock bottom.
"But she feels so happy and calm now - married life is great and she can't wait to be a mum."
Matthews met her American-born husband while recording her new album in a studio used by Bob Dylan in Nashville, Tennessee.
Set to be released on 19 May, it features six tracks written by Matthews and five covers including the Welsh hymn Arglwydd Dyma Fi.
Other covers include Roger Cooks' Chardonnay, La Bague, Weightless Again and All My Trials.
The solo venture marks a new career direction for the singer who was the face of the hugely-successful pop and rock band Catatonia, which was formed in the early 1990s.
The band split in 2001.
Brought up in Swansea, her parents Pauline and Philip now live in the Fishguard area.
Meanwhile, Matthews has announced she will kick-off a short UK summer tour at Cardiff's St David's Hall on 14 June.
