FREETEXT and COUNT

Hi I have a table that contains forum messages:

messageID       topicID       messageText

     1                    1           apple
     2                    1           orange
     3                    2           grape
     4                    1           cherry
     5                    3           peach

I have a query to get all the messages that contain the word "apple":

            SELECT * FROM tblMessages WHERE FREETEXT (messageText, 'apple');

This works fine but I would also like a count of how many other messages there are associated with the same topicID as the records returned by the the above query.  This is how I would like the result set to be:

messageID      topicID         messageText       numMsgs
      1                  1                 apple                   3

Is this possible?

SELECT
    tm.messageId,
    tm.topicId,
    (select count(*) from tblMessages as tm2 where tm2.topicId = tm.topicId) as numMsg
FROM
    tblMessages as tm
WHERE
    FREETEXT (tm.messageText, 'apple');
