The Project host Kanoa Lloyd has this evening announced she is expecting a baby.

Lloyd made the announcement during this evening's edition of The Project, which she co-hosts with Jesse Mulligan and Jeremy Corbett.

Mulligan had previously hinted that there would be some special news on the show, tweeting "as a friend" that people should watch the show Friday evening, around 7.25pm.

"It's my job to tell you to watch @TheProject_NZ but tonight I ask you to tune in as a friend, at 7.25pm in particular," he posted on Twitter earlier today.

The TV presenter delivered the news that she is expecting her first child with her husband, freelance editor and colourist Mikee Carpinter, whom she married in 2016.

"I am leaving The Project… on maternity leave!" she said during the show.

"I've got the coolest baby daddy in the world," the present added, with the camera panning to the audience, where her husband was sitting, to share the special moment in the studio with his wife.

"I'm really excited. I'm going to be picking all your parent brains for what I'm supposed to do," Lloyd added.

Social media reacted with delight to the happy news.

The TV presenter also posted the news on Instagram this evening, with a sweet post showing the couple and her baby bump.
