Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins is pregnant with her first child.
The 39-year-old, who signed up to launch the ITV show in late April, received cheers from her co-hosts as she made her announcement on air.
Hawkins – previously a familiar face on Sky News' Sunrise show – told viewers after the programme featured the story of a woman whose waist had grown to 55ins during her first pregnancy.
She responded: "I'm pregnant, I'm happy to announce, expecting a baby – and that kind of story fills me with dread. I'm hoping I won't reach that record."
The presenting team already have seven children between them – Susanna Reid has three sons, Ben Shephard two sons, and Sean Fletcher has a son and a daughter.
