Today show reporter announces she’s pregnant, much to the surprise of Karl Stefanovic
Stefanovic was blindsided as journalist Jess Millward rubbed her belly and revealed she was expecting a child.
Millward was reporting about theme parks in the Gold Coast reopening, but wasn’t able to take advantage of the theme park due to her “condition”.

“I’m a thrill seeker from way back, a real bad***, if you can say that on TV,” joked Millward.
“I was all ready to go on the rides yesterday, super excited, cameraman ready to go, and then I remembered I have a certain condition at the moment, so I can’t really,” she said.
Stefanovic, 45, then asked her about her condition, saying she had “no idea” what she was talking about.
His co-host Allison Langdon playfully reminded him that he did know and that it was a “good condition”.
Millward gave Stefanovic some help, saying that she was banned on going on the rides for the next “five months”.
“She’s having a baby!” Langdon said, confirming the news for viewers.
“Congratulations Jess, oh my goodness!” Stefanovic said.
Langdon then joked that Stefanovic had been “under a rock” for the last few weeks as he took time off to spend time with his new daughter Harper, who his wife Jasmine Yarbrough welcomed in early May.
“I had a bit of time off, not under a rock. That is fantastic. No wonder she can’t go on that ride!” Stefanovic said.
