TV and radio presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford is expecting her first child, with football manager Brian Barry-Murphy.
The host of the Sunday Chart Show on Hits Radio discovered she was pregnant before Christmas, and is due to give birth in early August.
After a difficult first trimester, Crawford said she was feeling “more energised” as she prepared to enter the final stage.
She told Hello! magazine: “We are both over the moon. We found out just before Christmas. It was an incredible present.
“I’ve noticed my body is changing with the seasons. When summer comes it will be the blossoming of everything. It’s an amazing journey.”
Rochdale manager Barry-Murphy, 41, has an eight-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
Crawford said: “Blending a family is a special thing. I’ve come from a blended family too.
“Brian is very excited to be a dad all over again. He loves being a dad and he knew (being a parent) is something I really wanted, too. It’s a new chapter in our relationship.”
Crawford, who has West African and Irish heritage, said that, having dealt with insecurities, she would be passing on a positive message to her child.
She said: “I had things I hated about myself, like my lips, when I was growing up, but now I’m really proud of my looks.
“I’ll pass on the message to my child that: ‘You’re beautiful.’
“I want them to know that their uniqueness is what makes them special. I want them to feel proud of themselves and of their own natural beauty.
“When it comes to learning to love yourself, I have lots of good life experience to pass on.”
