“There’s so many emotions at the moment obviously I’m really excited and I’m obviously really grateful that I can work because I’m still feeling well enough to do that but there is, you know, the nerves setting in as well so it’s just a whirlwind.”

The new mum shared, “I’m sure everyone else experiences that too but you know, it’s my first time experiencing it so yeah!”

Anna and her husband Kevin announced they were expecting their first child together in February. The new parents confirmed the news on Instagram.

Alongside a photo of a toy rabbit, mini hurley, and onesie, the presenter wrote, “A new teammate coming in 2023”.

Huge congratulations to Anna and Kevin on the birth of their baby boy.
