Australian television’s golden couple, Sylvia Jeffreys and Peter Stefanovic, have welcomed their second child, a baby boy. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday morning, Sylvia announced the happy news, revealing the pair had named him Henry.

“Our gorgeous, healthy little boy makes us a family of four,” the Today Extra host wrote, alongside two sweet pics of their new bubba. “His proud parents couldn’t be happier. His big brother is learning to be gentle. Big love all around.”

Friends and family of the pair were quick to congratulate them on their new arrival. Sunrise presenter Edwina Bartholomew commented, “How beautiful. Welcome handsome Henry.”

While Today presenter Alex Cullen wrote, “Congratulations Sylvia and Pete! This is fantastic news. He’s a beauty. Well done and love the name.” And Today weather presenter Tim Davies said, “Welcome Henry. Congratulations @sylviajeffreys @peter_stefanovic; thrilled for you & Oscar.”

Sylvia and her journalist husband Peter are already parents to one-year-old Oscar. The 34-year-old previously revealed she never had plans to have her children so close together, telling in February this year, “The second time around it was … spontaneous, I’d say. We hadn’t planned to go down that path so soon, but having had not an entirely easy path the first time around, you can’t be anything but thankful or grateful to have fallen pregnant this way.

“Having said that, it’s definitely a tight turnaround and people think we’re nuts! When we tell them our boys will be 14 or 15 months apart, they roll their eyes and say, ‘Good luck!’.”

Sylvia has previously opened up about her fertility struggles. Last October, the Today Extra host revealed live on air that she underwent IVF in order to have son Oscar.

What do you think of the 14-month age gap between babies? Do you have any advice for the couple?
