Sarah Harris reveals she lived in public housing

She’s the Studio 10 co-host, happily married to Tom Ward and expecting her second child.

But Sarah Harris’ life hasn’t always been rosy, revealing in Monday’s Woman’s Day magazine that she was raised by a single mother in public housing in Sydney’s West.

‘There were times we didn’t know what would be for the dinner,’ the 36-year-old told the publication.

Sarah candidly spoke of being brought up by her single mother, who gave birth at 18, telling Woman’s Day: ‘There were times we didn’t know what would be for dinner.

‘I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth. I had to work really hard for everything.’

The Channel Ten personality also told of how her mother taught her about feminism.

‘She was very much of the opinion that you earn your own money, you educate yourself, you don’t rely on a man and you work hard,’ she said.

Sarah has become one of Australia’s success stories in the media landscape.

Not only is her professional life soaring as a popular co-host on ratings hit Studio 10, the breakfast presenter’s personal life is also going swimmingly.

Sarah is expecting her second child with husband Tom Ward in December, the couple already sharing son Paul, 20 months.

The blonde beauty announced the pregnancy news on-air in June.

‘I’m sick of holding my stomach in. I’m having a baby,’ Sarah told a very surprised Jessica Rowe, Suzie Elman and David Robinson.

Longtime friend Jessica immediately leaped up from her seat to give Sarah a big cuddle, screaming ‘she’s pregnant!’

Sarah told Studio 10 producers she had been having a very hard time hiding the news from her colleagues because of her growing baby bump.

‘You guys were so onto it. I’ve had to hide behind the desk,’ she exclaimed. 

Sarah explained that she and Tom hadn’t been trying for another baby when they found out about the news.

‘It was kind of a surprise. We were hoping to try again at the end of the year,’ she said.
