Sam Quek gave birth to her second baby with husband Tom Mairs.
The 33-year-old, who was announced as the new presenter for the BBC’s Morning Live in January, is pregnant just seven months after giving birth to daughter Molly.
Talking to YES! magazine, she said: “There are 4 of us now…”
A sweet black and white photo she shared with the publication shows the entire family’s hands reaching out for each other, with the baby’s tiny fingers clutching one of hers.
Just a day after hosting Morning Live with Gethin Jones, Sam went into labor the Friday before giving birth.
It comes after Sam told the Mirror last month she had to be “tougher” after receiving online abuse from trolls.

Sam – who won an Olympic gold medal with the Team GB hockey team in Rio in 2016 – explained that she finds it hard to forget the scammers who targeted her just days after she suffered a miscarriage.
She said: “I had the craziest things written about me but one thing was really terrible when I presented a football program on Radio 1.
“I said something along the lines of ‘FA Cup replays should be scrapped.’ A lot of people disagree with me and agree. But those who disagreed have been really hard and I’ve had some horrible, horrible things including a death threat.

“But what they didn’t realize was that I had a miscarriage two days before that show and I wasn’t in great shape.
“I go to work because I just want to try and distract myself. I still haven’t really digested the miscarriage. ”
Sam’s heartbreak came when he was 10 weeks pregnant. She said: “I’m really upset but I’m still doing The One Show next week because I don’t want people to think that if you’re being abused you just run away, because that’s not the case.
“Sadly, especially with social media, it is easy for people to point out things they disagree with or that they consider horrible. I had to learn to be tougher and ignore what I read and get goosebumps.
“It’s not an easy place to get to and it took me years to get there.”
