Angela Scanlon has surprised fans with the news she is six months pregnant with her first baby! The 33-year-old Irish presenter - who covered Alex Jones on The One Show during her maternity leave – made the big announcement on Instagram on Thursday. Alongside a photo showing her posing in a pink silk blazer and pointing excitedly at her blossoming bump, Angela wrote: "So I've been baking for six months now… and I've made a bun! It's currently in the oven & will be ready by springtime. We are so, SO thrilled (since I've taken my head out of the toilet bowl) and can't wait to welcome a mad, wonderful little human into our world. Really hoping he/she is ginger," she added.

'You'll glow' they said." Alongside it, she wrote: "So. I've been baking for 6 months now…and I've made a bun. It's currently in the oven and will be ready by springtime. Apart from feeling severe resentment at the lack of promised 'glow', we are so SO delighted… plus my hair looks great!!"
