This will be the first child for the couple

During an interview with Harper's Bazaar in 2018, Tina revealed she "worked ridiculously hard" to get where she is after her parents told her she "needed to work twice as hard as everyone else".

"I was doing the news on BBC Three, finishing at midnight and then coming in to do breakfast, which comes back to what my parents said about having to work two or three times as hard," she explained. "I never even considered doing a job for pleasure."
