Winehouse left in tears after news of husband's child

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse sobbed and beat her chest when she heard that

her estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil is to be a father, according to reports.

The singer was told the news in a hotel bar in St Lucia where she has been holidaying since March.

At first she assumed it was Fielder-Civil's 17-year-old girlfriend Francesca Moralee who is pregnant.

Winehouse was seen weeping and banging her chest as she told friends: "I'm not sad you know, I'm excited. I knew Blake and his new girlfriend Francesca would be able to have a normal life."

But the 'Back to Black' hitmaker became angry when she discovered it is 31-year-old former heroin addict Gilleen Morris who is expecting Fielder-Civil's child after she had a brief romance with him at the Phoenix Futures Rehab Centre in Sheffield, England in February.

According to the News of the World, Winehouse wailed: "That better be a mistake or I'll beat his head in. Oh great, he's had it with some... I don't wanna know, don't tell me anymore."

After crying and telling bar staff of her woes, Winehouse was then heard saying she is keen to start a family and wants twins.

The Mail on Sunday reported that since finding out the news, Winehouse is considering adopting a St Lucian child.

Her spokesman says: "Amy was talking about adopting in the context of looking after children on the island, perhaps through some kind of music and education-based project."
