Sunrise newsreader Edwina Bartholomew is expecting her second child with her husband Neil Varcoe.

‘In developing news, news that will be developing news, news that will be developing for the next six months, we will be having another baby,’ she said.
Neil and Edwina already share daughter Molly, one, and she joked that their little one was totally disinterested in the news.
‘Due in February, and I tried to tell Molly and she was not terribly interested. I showed her the photo when she scrunched up and threw on the floor,’ she said.

Edwina, who also shared a picture of her baby scan, told her Sunrise colleagues she will be keeping mum on the sex of the baby.
‘Yes, we know what it is. I will keep that one a secret for now,’ she said.
She added that her co-hosts had started to cotton on to her happy news ‘because I’ve been eating Jatz biscuits for the last three weeks during the Olympics just to get through.’
‘I am five per cent baby, and 95 per cent Jatz!’ she laughed.
When asked if she was suffering with any morning sickness, Edwina added: ‘I feel a bit nauseous. Nat [Barr] cottoned on quite quickly, there was a lot of peanut butter toast going around in the early hours…’

David ‘Kochie’ Koch jested: ‘I just thought you didn’t like my comments sometimes,’ before pretending to heave behind the news desk.
‘I think that might explain the inappropriate laughing and crying at some stories and general emotions!’ Edwina smiled.
‘I’ve been very emotional right throughout the Olympics.’
The whole team then congratulated Edwina on her happy news, as she beamed at the camera in joy.
Edwina also announced she was pregnant with Molly on Sunrise back in June 2019.
‘We’re having a baby, due in December,’ she told her colleagues live on the show.
She added at the time: ‘We’re super stoked and our family is really excited. Mum has been bursting at the seams to tell everyone – so mum, you can tell everyone!’
The presenter married Neil, a digital media executive, on April 21, 2018 at their restored farmhouse in Lithgow, New South Wales.
Edwina stunned during the ceremony in a restored ornate white gown which featured lace detail in front of a star-studded guest list including Sam Armytage and David Koch.

In April last year, Edwina shared a heartwarming tribute to the love of her life in celebration of their second wedding anniversary.
‘Two years since our amazing three day wedding/festival/camping extravaganza,’ Edwina begun, happy to share her cherished memories.
She went on to praise her journalist husband, saying: ‘Every day you excel at being a husband and a dad.
‘Your OCD, annoying at other times, has really come into its own during this global pandemic, as has your love of basic food groups and frozen goods.’
She then joked about how the husband and wife are opposite to each other in almost every way, which makes for perfect balance.
‘I worry. You don’t. I’m impatient. You’re patient. I make mess. You clean up. I get cold. You build a fire,’ she wrote.
‘We are opposites in many respects but we are both extremely lucky to have each other and all the wonderful people in our lives.’

Edwina, who welcomed Molly after a total of 36 hours in the hospital, recently spoke candidly about the trials of motherhood.
In her interview with The Herald Sun, Edwina admitted she broke down in tears due to exhaustion less than 24 hours after giving birth.
‘I couldn’t sit down, I couldn’t feel comfortable standing up and you’re walking around like a zombie and you also have to care for and feed this tiny human,’ she said.
Molly arrived a week after her due date, with Edwina taking to Instagram on December 20 to make the happy announcement.

Edwina and Neil, who now live in a $1.6 million heritage home in Sydney’s inner-west, met when they were working together on radio station 2GB a decade ago.
But the presenter admitted in 2017 it wasn’t smooth sailing at the beginning, with Neil apparently rejecting her advances when she first asked him out.
‘I asked him out on a date and he said no, which he maintains was a miscommunication’, she told OK! magazine.
‘I thought, “Well, you’re a bloody idiot, aren’t you?” A girl asks you out for a drink and you say no?”
‘Anyway, we eventually did go out on a date and we’ve been together ever since. I literally went home that night after that date and said: “I’m going to marry him”.’
Edwina has previously spoken about the sneaky preparations taken by Neil before he popped the question.

‘He’s not a down on one knee-type guy, but he’d spoken to my dad – he did it the traditional way,’ she previously told Whimn.
Edwina went on to say her busy career and lifestyle was constantly getting in Neil’s way when he wanted to propose.
‘He actually tried to propose a number of times before, but I would have something on that got in the way,’ she explained.
Neil’s method of finding out Edwina’s ring size involved secretly asking her Channel Seven colleagues for help.
Edwina said: ‘My boss, Michael (Pell), was in on it. He had gone down to the jeweller to get the ring and the girls in wardrobe had secretly measured my finger – the deploy being I needed jewellery for the Logies.’
