The 35-year-old journalist shared the happy news live on Channel Seven’s breakfast show on Wednesday morning.
‘We’re having a baby, due in December,’ she told her colleagues.

Edwina added: ‘We’re super stoked and our family is really excited. Mum has been bursting at the seams to tell everyone – so mum, you can tell everyone!’
She explained that Sunrise co-host Samantha Armytage already knew about the pregnancy, and fellow reporter Natalie Barr had guessed due to her odd cravings.
‘Sam knew early on and Nat guessed because I kept eating a lot of dried toast at three in the morning!’ she joked.
David Koch was visibly delighted by Edwina’s announcement, giving her a big hug and saying: ‘How exciting! I love a baby!’
The mum-to-be also shared a sonogram photo with Sunrise viewers, adding that she is yet to find out if she’s having a boy or a girl.
Edwina married Neil, a digital media executive, on Saturday April 21 at their restored farmhouse in Lithgow, New South Wales.
She wore a vintage wedding dress that had been worn by three generations of her family, including her grandmother in 1944.
The gown had been specially altered for her nuptials by Cappellazzo Couture.
