'Good Morning Britain' presenter Charlotte Hawkins is pregnant.
The 39-year-old star revealed she is expecting her first child on the TV breakfast show this morning (12.08.14) shortly after discussing a news story about a woman whose waist grew to 139cm during her first pregnancy.
She said: "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."
Charlotte's co-star Susanna Reid - who has three children - joked: "Who would have thought that working on Good Morning Britain could be so productive!"
Charlotte - who has been married to husband Mark Herbert since 2008 - admitted later on the show that she will be leaning on her fellow presenters Susanna, Ben Shephard, who has two sons, and Sean Fletcher, who has a son and a daughter, for advice.
She said: "My husband Mark and I are absolutely thrilled to be expecting our first child. I've been looking forward to sharing the news with everyone, and can't wait to be a mother for the first time.
"Luckily I have my fellow 'Good Morning Britain' presenters on hand who've already been through it, so I'll be relying on them for expert advice!"
