Sian Welby has announced that she's expecting her first child. The This Morning star shared the exciting news live on Capital Breakfast on Wednesday morning.

"I've got a bit of an announcement for you! I'm pregnant!" she told her co-hosts Roman Kemp and Chris Stark.

"I don't know how I've managed to keep it from you for so long. The lies, the deceit, the mocktails! I couldn't wait to tell you. This is a whole new journey for me and I want to take you all on it with me, and don't worry I'm not going anywhere! This is going to be a lot of fun and I can't wait to share it with you all."

Sian and her fiancé Jake Beckett, who works for Heart Breakfast as a creative producer, are expecting their new arrival later this summer, with the presenter scheduled to take a break from work around this time before returning to the show later in the year.

Flashing her sparkly ring in sun-soaked snaps of the loved-up couple, the presenter penned in the caption: "On Tuesday I thought we were just going on a boat trip!! Genuinely didn't see this coming.

"Love you Jakey x. 15.8.23," she added.

The news of Sian's pregnancy comes shortly after Roman announced his departure from Capital Breakfast after ten years.
