She's due to welcome her third child next month but Anna Daly has drawn a line in the sand and won't be having any more children after this one.

The Saturday and Sunday AM presenter (39) is already mum to James (five) and Euan (three) with husband Ben Ward, and she revealed she has already broken her motherhood rule with her third pregnancy.

"This is it, absolutely this is it. God yes. I've always said the world is built for two adults and two children so I'm breaking my rule already," she told the Diary.

"This is a bonus baby and then we're done."

With two sons already, the TV3 star insisted she's not too fussed about adding a girl to the household.

"I don't care about a girl actually. I'm not one of those women who is craving a girl or wanting to dress the child in pink or anything like that," she said.

"I'm praying for a healthy child. It's such a cliche to say that but it's the truth."

The TV presenter is looking forward to her maternity leave, however she plans on working right up until the end so she's not bored.

"I've been healthy and well with loads of energy and working away. I'm still going. I'll work 'til the middle of October and I'm due at the end of October," she said.

"I was a week finished work when James came along and about two weeks before Euan came along. I'd prefer to be working then waiting at home for something to happen, going insane.

"When you're pregnant and you have no children, the whole world revolves around your pregnancy and you're maternity leave.

"When you've already got two and you've a full-time job, you just don't think about it until the baby is here."

Anna has missed former co-host Ivan Yates, who left the show earlier this year.

"I do miss him. Ivan was fantastic to work with," she said.
