On Wednesday, TV presenter Laura Whitmore shared the incredibly exciting news that she's expecting her first child with partner Love Island presenter Iain Stirling.

Laura made the announcement on her Instagram feed by sharing a sweet photo of a tiny onesie, which had "Sweet Child O' Mine Coming 2021" written on it. Alongside the photo, Laura wrote a lengthy caption about the news, which read:

"So I've always tried to be protective over the personal side of my life. A lot of things are just for me and my loved ones and we've chosen not to share publicly. However I want to now share good news as it's our news to share - and I'm gonna be honest it's starting to look like my lock down beer belly is out of control. Iain and I are expecting a baby early 2021. It's been hard to keep such happy news quiet. Especially the times when I've had to run out of live radio to get sick in a bin or my penchant for a bowl of mashed potato in the morning. I wasn't hungover like everyone thought. In fact I was completely sober filming the entire series of Celeb Juice, which is quite the accolade! We'd appreciate our privacy respected but just wanted to spread some love and a reminder of the beauty of life ❤️"

Love from celebrity friends quickly came flooding in. "The best news. Congrats x", commented fellow presenter Dermot O'Leary and Ella Eyre excitedly wrote: "❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ THE BEST NEWS ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ CONGRATS TO YOU BOTH ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"

The couple haven't shared any further details other than the due date being early 2021. The couple will likely be enjoying this time privately. We wish them all the best. Congrats!
