‘In developing news, news that will be developing news, news that will be developing for the next six months, we will be having another baby,’ she said.

Neil and Edwina already share daughter Molly, one, and she joked that their little one was totally disinterested in the news.  

‘Due in February, and I tried to tell Molly and she was not terribly interested. I showed her the photo when she scrunched up and threw on the floor,’ she said.

Edwina told her Sunrise colleagues she will be keeping mum on the sex of the baby.

‘Yes, we know what it is. I will keep that one a secret for now,’ she said. 

Speaking about her pregnancy cravings, she added: ‘Jabba knows because I’ve been eating Jatz biscuits for the last three weeks during the Olympics just to get through. 

‘I am 5 per cent baby and 95 per cent Jatz!’

When asked if she was getting ay morning sickness, she added: ‘I feel a bit nauseous. Nat [Barr] cottoned on quite quickly, there was a lot of peanut butter toast going around in the early hours!

David ‘Kochie’ Koch jested: ‘I just thought you didn’t like my comments sometimes,’ before pretending to heave behind the news desk.

‘I think that might explain the inappropriate laughing and crying at some stories and general emotions!’ Edwina smiled.

‘I’ve been very emotional right throughout the Olympics!’

The whole team then congratulated Edwina on her happy news, as she beamed at the camera in joy.

Edwina also announced she was pregnant with Molly on Sunrise back in June 2019.

‘We’re having a baby, due in December,’ she told her colleagues live on the show.

She added at the time: ‘We’re super stoked and our family is really excited. Mum has been bursting at the seams to tell everyone – so mum, you can tell everyone!’
