New baby joy for Holly Willoughby

TV presenter Holly Willoughby is pregnant with her second child, she has announced.

She told viewers the good news as she fronted ITV show This Morning on Monday with co-host Phillip Schofield.

Willoughby, 29, married TV producer Dan Baldwin, who she met on children's show Ministry Of Mayhem, in West Sussex in August 2007.

She gave birth to her first child, a boy named Harry, in May last year.

The couple said in a statement: "Dan and I are absolutely thrilled to be expecting our second child, due next May. We can't wait for Harry to have a brother or sister."

Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden was one of the first to congratulate the former Xtra Factor host, writing on Twitter: "Hoorah!! For Holly Wills! Up the duff!"

The curvy presenter had told her fans on the social networking site to expect an announcement, saying: "So, we are back from half term and you may want to tune in (to This Morning)... I've got something to say xxx"

Willoughby told viewers that the baby was due in May.

She said: "It's a relief because I can finally say the lovely news that Dan and I are expecting another baby. It's so nice to say - we have another baby on its way."

Schofield, who has known about the pregnancy for weeks, offered "many many congratulations", adding: "Terrific, and thank goodness for that, the secret is out."
