ITV This Morning’s Sharon Marshall has revealed she is 14 weeks pregnant with her first child.

The 46-year-old broke down when she revealed the news to presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

Sharon presents the soap segment on the show.

Phillip told her she was “blossoming”, and she replied: "I’m pregnant. I am probably going to say everything wrong. I am a little bit emotional."

Holly congratulated her, saying: "It is the most wonderful news."

The well-known soap expert replied: "It is really, really happy. These are happy tears."

Holly - who has three children, Harry (8),  Belle (6), and Chester (3) with her husband Daniel Baldwin – assured her that tears during pregnancy were very normal.

"Get used to this, it doesn't stop, let me tell you!" she said.

"Why am I so hormonal?” Sharon added.

Sharon and her husband Paul are expecting their baby in July.

"He is really really happy, he is thrilled,” Sharon said. “We can’t wait, we are just so happy. It will be about July," she said.

She joked that she had tried her best to keep her soap segment free of tears this morning.

"I deliberately took out anything relating to babies at all because I'll cry and then I cry. The first thing I said this morning is: 'Do not cry!' "

Afterwards, Sharon shared a photo of her ultrasound scan on Twitter.

She wrote: "Thank you so much for your lovely messages, Paul and I are beyond happy, (sic)".
