Good Morning Britain's Laura Tobin had some very exciting news to share with viewers on Tuesday. The weather women surprised the show's hosts Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan by announcing her pregnancy live on air, straight after delivering the day's weather forecast. "I literally can't believe it's May so I thought I'd do a little forecast looking ahead at what is coming up," Laura began. "Now as we head through the summer months it's looking likely to be drier and warmer than average, and as we head into September things will be blooming.

"But it won't just be my dress, because I'm very pleased to let everyone know that come the end of October, I'll be having my own little ray of sunshine. I'm having a baby," she confirmed. "And I would like to say that nobody knows – none of my family, my aunties, uncles, cousins… no one in the Met office. My parents, my husband's parents and our editor Neil [knew]."
