The celebrity baby announcements just keep on coming.

This morning, Jennifer’s 2fm co-star Bernard accidentally made the announcement.

“You can be best friends with Amy Huberman now,” he cryptically said.

“It wasn’t the way we wanted to announce it, by you blurting it out on air,” the broadcaster told her fellow hosts on The Breakfast Republic Show.

“Lau is going to kill you you know that... he’s a third dan,” she laughed, referring to her husband Lau Zamparelli.

The 34-year-old wed her long term partner Lau in an intimate ceremony in Castle Leslie in July.

“My honeymoon, supposed to be the greatest holiday of my life, was my worst experience being abroad,” she said on air.

“I cried, because I was so ill. I couldn’t even go for dinner with my husband because I couldn’t stand. I only ate bananas and Special K for three weeks!"

The Republic of Telly star does not yet know the sex of her unborn child, insisting she just wants a healthy child.

The brunette says she has been eating a lot of pizza, and chocolate for breakfast, and admits watching her body change and “losing control” of her trim figure is hard.

She addressed Irish women who “lie about their pregnancy”:

“They say the sickness stops...it doesn’t…. they say you’ll feel amazing...you don’t feel amazing, you feel like crap,” she told her co-hosts.

In the last two days, Samantha Mumba, Una Foden, Kate Middleton and Amy Huberman also confirmed they are expecting children in the coming months.

“We’re all at it,” Jennifer agreed.

“If you stay till the end of the show I’ll tell you who the father is,” she joked.

It's certainly been a busy few months for the Dubliner as she began co-hosting the radio show with Keith Walsh and Bernard O'Shea earlier this year.

"I have learned that it takes a lot of time for a show to bed in.

"It takes the guts of a year really, especially because I never did radio before and especially when there is three of us," she continued.

"But I think we are on the right track together," she added.

Filming is due to begin on the Republic of Telly soon and Jennifer says she can't wait to get stuck in.
