Natalie underwent in vitro fertilization to conceive – a medical procedure in which a woman has inserted an already fertilized egg into her womb to become pregnant.
The procedure can be done with the help of eggs and sperm from a couple or, as Natalie revealed that she chose, with the help of donors.
The Australian singer was married to Daniel Johns for five years before they broke up in 2008 and announced that she had a relationship with Matt Field in 2017, but the couple have not been photographed since the summer of 2018.

HOW DOES IVF WORK?
In vitro fertilization, known as IVF, is a medical procedure in which a woman has introduced an already fertilized egg into her womb to conceive.
It is used when couples are unable to become pregnant naturally and a sperm and egg are removed from their bodies and combined in a laboratory before the embryo is introduced into the woman.
Once the embryo is in the womb, pregnancy must continue as normal.
The procedure can be done using eggs and sperm from a couple or from donors.
Guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommend that IVF should be offered on the NHS to women younger than 43 who tried to conceive for two years through regular unprotected sex.
People can also pay privately for IVF, which costs an average of £ 3,348 for a single cycle, according to figures published in January 2018, and there is no guarantee of success.
The NHS says that the success rates for women under 35 are around 29 percent, with the chance of a successful cycle decreasing as they get older.
It is thought that around eight million babies were born due to IVF since the first case, the British wife Louise Brown, was born in 1978.
