British songbird Leona Lewis picked a very unusual venue for her baby shower: an animal sanctuary. 

But her choice made perfect sense to dedicated fans because they're well aware that the Bleeding Love singer absolutely adores animals.

Leona (37), who's expecting her first child, posed for pictures with her husband, German-born choreographer Dennis Jauch (33), family and a few four-legged friends at the Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Essex, England.

She made sure to document the sweet occasion on her Instagram page.

In the video post she wrote that she was “showered with love at my favourite place to be”.

Leona, who's been a vegetarian for most of her life and is a brand ambassador for the KISS range of cruelty-free false nails and lashes, met Dennis in 2010 when he was a backup dancer on her The Labyrinth tour.

They got engaged in 2018, and a year later they wed in a Buddhist ceremony held at Sting and his wife Trudie Styler’s vineyard in Tuscany, Italy.

Although thrilled to be expecting, she's revealed her first trimester was “really challenging”.

“I was severely ill and unable to leave the house. So I promised myself when I could get out, I would spend more time in nature. She's truly healing.”

Meanwhile, on the work front she's been busy recording music for an upcoming documentary film, Hidden Letters, which will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in June.

The film follows the story of two Chinese women trying to balance their lives as independent women in modern China while confronting the traditional identity that both defines and oppresses them.
