Holly Willoughby has confirmed she is pregnant.

Holly Willoughby has confirmed she is pregnant.

The 'This Morning' presenter - who already has a 17-month-old son Harry with husband Dan Baldwin - announced on the show, which she co-presents with Philip Schofield, that she is expecting her second child.

Celebrity friends of the 29-year-old TV star have already expressed their congratulations to the couple.

'Britain's Got Talent' judge Amanda Holden tweeted: "Hoorah!! For Holly Wills! Up the duff! X(sic)"

It is exactly two years to the day since Holly was forced to announce she was pregnant with her first child when 'X Factor' judges Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh congratulated her as she hosted 'The Xtra Factor'.

She joked: "Yes, I am pregnant - I don't know if people know that yet."

Holly recently released a book with friend and fellow TV presenter Fearne Cotton, which the pair hope will give young women advice on issues ranging from dealing with embarrassing situations to having a good time with pals.

Fearne said: "We thought there was a guide missing out there for people around our age or a bit younger, who need advice on different things. I don't think there's any limits for girls these days and that's what this book is all about.

"Hopefully lots of girls out there will really enjoy reading it and get good advice or solace from it because we've given a lot of stories and anecdotes from our past that we think people will relate to."
