Back then, the popular presenter told her Twitter followers: "I see my news is out! Yep, I am no longer with pot belly...... I am now with child. #babyonboard."

Steph has kept busy since confirming her pregnancy, but it was announced last week that she was starting her maternity leave. BBC Breakfast revealed the news, treating the mum-to-be to a moving video featuring advice from her colleagues, including Louise Minchin and Naga Munchetty.
