TVNZ Breakfast host Hayley Holt is expecting her first child!
The 39-year-old announced the exciting news live on the show this morning after a viewer speculated that she may be pregnant.
She said: "On Monday we had a message from Terry saying, 'hi team, happy New year. I've just tuned in and I'm wondering if I've missed a special announcement. Is Hayley pregnant? Or is it just today's outfit? Her bust and belly look quite full.'
"Now Terry, I am terribly offended," she responded as a joke.
"I'd get angry and I'd send someone over to see you if, in fact, it wasn't true.
"Because yes Terry, I am pregnant," she confirmed.
"I've finally told everybody, which is so awkward.
"I'm so happy because I wanted this for a very, very, very long time and I thought my time was running out and it hasn't."
Breakfast's official Twitter account congratulated the host, sharing a sweet picture of the mum-to-be proudly showing off her growing baby bump.
"Hayley's hapū! Please join us in congratulating Hayley who's expecting her first child later this year #BreakfastBaby," they captioned the post.
Fellow Breakfast hosts John Campbell, Matty McLean and Jenny-May Clarkson also congratulated Holt on the news.
