TELEVISION presenter Holly Willoughby is pregnant with her third child.

The This Morning host, who is married to TV producer Dan Baldwin, revealed the “surprise” news on her website.

The 33-year-old posted a link to the announcement on her Twitter page, where she said: “I've got something to tell you.” With reference to another ITV show she presents, the broadcaster added: “Surprise Surprise (and it was a surprise!!) I'm really happy and excited to tell you that Dan and I are expecting baby number 3!!

CONTROVERSY

“We feel blessed and very lucky to be giving Belle and Harry a little brother or sister later this year.”

Last summer, Holly joined forces with sister Kelly to write a children's book, which follows twins Molly and Maria as they start their first term at drama school.

She also sparked controversy when viewers complained about her “unsuitable” choice of lowcut dress in the final of The

Voice, the BBC talent show she used to present.

She wore a racy black lace dress that attracted more than 100 complaints about the show, broadcast in the main before the watershed.
