The 36-year-old announced her pregnancy on Sunrise during a live cross in June, sharing the news with an unaware, David ‘Kochie’ Koch.
“The girls already know but Kochie, surprise. We’re having a baby,” she said.
The long-time presenter responded with excitement.
“Aww, that’s fantastic news,” he said. “Really exciting.”
Edwina has previously spoken about keeping the sex of her baby a secret, adding that while Neil wanted to know, she didn’t.
“It’s an interesting debate because Neil wants to find out and I don’t,” she said.
