The Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman had emergency heart surgery two years ago when her arteries clogged up. So when venues received notification today that she was cancelling all events for the first first half of the year, there were understandable fears for her health.

Nothing to worry about. Measha’s expecting a baby, according to a Spanish press release UPDATE: Her US publicist has been in touch. This news may be premature. We will update you as we hear more.

Canadian opera star Measha Brueggergosman appears on Canada AM, Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2012.

Here she is two weeks ago on a health-promotion kick on Canada AM.

And this is Measha singing one of my all-time favourites.
