She added: "Baby Horgan The Second (official title) arrives next spring [red heart emoji] Feeling very lucky & excited & also nervous about jumping on a trampoline (forever)."

Angela was bombarded with messages of congratulations from her pals, including co-host Alex Jones who said it was "Lovely news!!!!!"

Angela and her husband Roy Horgan already have a 3-year-old daughter named Ruby.

The Irish presenter recently opened up about becoming a mother for the first time in a tribute post to her daughter.

"Yesterday our baby girl turned 3. I am 3 years a mother," she wrote.

"I woke up feeling relieved & went to bed feeling full of love & thanks.

"3 years ago I was a shell. I had left hospital with this perfect little human & I didn’t know how to be a mother.

"I didn't know what to do, how I should feel, I struggled to feed her, I held my breath when she cried. I was numb for a long time & I was afraid that I might never feel anything much, that maybe I was broken or a bit defective.

"I watched other people in the 'new born love bubble' & longed to have that experience for both of us, instead I felt like a wild failure."

She continued: "Yesterday, 3 years on, I felt like a good mother, not because of presents or Paw Patrol chocolate coins but because I was able to fully LOVE with all of me.

"To be properly there in the moment & to celebrate her & us.

"We had cake & balloons & a Zoom call with our clans where no one could hear anyone but it was perfect!!

"I went to bed so grateful that I was supported to get to this point where I can kiss her beautiful, sweaty little head as she holds Bunny in a vice grip while wearing a helmet (him)."
