Speaking on the ITV show today, the 33-year-old star said: "That first bit when you can't say anything to anybody, it's horrible because you just want to go, 'I'm pregnant!'

"But now it's nice that everybody knows and it's out there."

Holly, who was joined by Christine Bleakley on This Morning today, added that telling her children Harry, four, and two-year-old Belle had been "lovely".

"When Belle came along Harry was not even two so he didn't really get it, but this time he really gets it and this morning he came downstairs and I was just waking up and he went, 'I just wanted to make sure you and the baby were OK'.

"It melts your heart. It's all lovely."

Holly announced her happy news via a statement on her official blog, saying: "Surprise Surprise (and it was a surprise!!) I'm really happy and excited to tell you that Dan and I are expecting baby number 3!! We feel blessed and very lucky to be giving Belle and Harry a little brother or sister later this year."
