Kate Ritchie is pregnant!

Kate Ritchie has confirmed that she is expecting her first child.

The Nova radio host and ex-Home and Away star shared the news on her Facebook page, along with a picture of her and husband, Stuart Webb.

The Gold Logie winner said:

IT IS WITH GREAT EXCITEMENT that Stuart and I announce we are expecting our first child.We can assure you any secrecy up to this moment has been nothing more than us protecting what is most sacred – a new life that was far from reaching its 12 week milestone.

Thank you to all who have respected our privacy over these past weeks allowing us the privilege every couple deserves – to share the wonderful news ourselves.

It really is such a special time for us and we couldn’t be happier! KR x

Ritchie’s pregnancy was first rumoured earlier this year, when Woman’s Day ran a story which included fake quotes from Ritchie.

Congratulations to Kate and Stuart.
