Paloma Faith has landed a BBC documentary following her publicised struggle with IVF.

The singer, 39, is due to give birth any day now as she and boyfriend Leyman Lahcine gear up to welcome their second child together.

Paloma signed on the dotted line for her very own hour-long BBC doc which will focus on her personal life and the struggles she's endured, The Sun reports.

Some topics which will come up in the documentary dubbed Paloma Faith: As I Am, include her juggling work with parenting and finding time for romance, as well as her IVF journey.

Paloma is also set to open up about her relationship with her estranged dad Ramon, who she has not spoken to in over a decade.

The in-depth documentary – which was filmed over the course of the year – was created by director Jane Mingay.

Paloma has previously opened up about her experience of filming for the doc, saying: “I was very reluctant to let a camera into the very personal experience of working as a first-time mum but Jane is a mother and friend, so I felt safe.

“The result is very telling, exposed and at times emotional for me to watch. I hope it’s a testament to all working mothers.”

What's more, director Jane admitted that the only reason the idea of a documentary was put into fruition is because she told the Only Love Can Hurt Like This singer to tell her story in hopes of inspiring others.

"We see loads of films about rock stars and sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll, but we never see what women have to do. It’s such a private thing having a child and then having to go out and become a different persona," Jane told The Sun.

“There is a moment during the film where she doesn’t know whether she’s going to be able to get pregnant. She’s like, ‘I’ve had two rounds of IVF and it hasn’t worked’," Jane added.

“Obviously a lot of women go through this and it’s really difficult. She does talk about it a lot and it will help many women to see it. It’s a journey that people don’t talk about.”

In December, Paloma opened up about why she had been so forthcoming with her second pregnancy.

Her first pregnancy left the star feeling "fragile", telling BBC Sounds: "I think it's important because with my first child I wasn't honest and I struggled with that, everyone was treating me like a normal pregnant person. But I didn't feel like one, I felt a bit fragile.

"I couldn't be happy about being pregnant because it was so hard to get there, why would it stay there, so this time I've been feeling better because I've been open about it.

"The fact my pregnancies aren't that strong and I have to be careful. I also do it because other women need to hear those things. The process of being pregnant itself is difficult."

It was in September when Paloma told her fans the happy news she was pregnant again.
