She announced the news on Wednesday on Sunrise, much to the joy of her co-workers.

Fans couldn’t contain their excitement with the video being viewed over 104,000 times.

Today, Edwina shared the first snap of her baby bump which shows just how far along she is.

She captioned the photo thanking everyone for their well wishes.

“Well, that escalated quickly. Thank you so much for all the wonderful well wishes we have received over the past 24 hours. @neilwrites and I are overwhelmed with love. Thanks also to @chloepaulphoto for keeping our secret and for capturing this beautiful shot of my expanding waistline xx.”

Fans were quick to wish her well in her pregnancy.

One fan commented saying, “Congratulations to the both of you, wishing you all the best for the next few months”.
