Grammy Award-winning songstress and UNICEF ambassador Pink is expecting her second child with husband Carey Hart.

“Surprise!” Pink, 37, born Alecia Moore, wrote on social media Saturday, captioning a portrait of herself in an autumn field, visibly pregnant in flowing white layers of clothing, as her 5-year-old daughter Willow stands beside her, pressing her face into Pink’s belly.

Meghan Kehoe, Pink’s publicist, subsequently confirmed the pregnancy to The Associated Press.

Photographer Deborah Anderson, who shot the image, tweeted afterward, “I have loved shooting this incredible woman for over 10 years now and was truly thrilled at getting to do a . . . ,” followed by a link to a Facebook page with the standard message “Sorry, this page isn’t available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed.”

Regardless, Pink retweeted Anderson’s missive, writing, “I love you goddess woman. Thank you for capturing this special moment . . . you’re incredible.”

“Raise Your Glass” singer Pink and motocross racer and “The Surreal Life” star Hart, 41, married in Costa Rica in January 2006, after she had proposed to him the previous June by holding up a sign reading, “Will You Marry Me?” while he was competing in a race in Mammoth Lakes, California. The two had met at the 2001 X Games. Their daughter was born in July 2011.

“I love being a mama,” Pink told ABC’s “Good Morning America” in May. “I made a choice a long time ago that I was going to have a successful family and that is my absolute, number-one goal in life.” She jokingly added, “I feel like I have two kids right now,” alluding to her husband. “I would like a third.”

In December, Pink spoke with People magazine about motherhood, saying, “I have lived a lot of life in a very short time, and you get hardened a little bit — you get jaded, you build up walls. And when you see this little kid, and you get to watch them through infancy to toddler to little person, it’s amazing.” She added, “You see how you were. When you watch this bundle full of love and light that’s untarnished and untainted by heartache and any of the numerous things that change you, it’s very healing. It’s a miracle.”
