Television host Sylvia Jeffreys and her husband Peter Stefanovic will have their hands full next year, with the arrival of their second baby in April – just over a year after the birth of their first child.

The mother-of-one made the exciting announcement on Saturday, sharing the news on her social media page with a cute photo of son Oscar.

“When you find out you’re getting a best bed for life,” she wrote on Instagram alongside an adorable photo of Oscar smiling down at hubby Peter. “Oscar’s little brother due in April next year. We are so lucky.”

Friends and followers were quick to congratulate the happy couple, with former colleague Lisa Wilkinson one of the first to share in the joy. The 60-year-old took to Instagram to congratulate Sylvia and Peter, alongside a collection of photos of herself and the soon to be mother-of-two.

“So happy for my gorgeous friend @sylviajeffreys with the news that she and that handsome devil of a husband of hers @peter_stefanovic are adding bub number two to their beautiful brood. Congrats guys,” Lisa wrote.

Adding: “P.S. Just a few happy work memories here… (although I must say, looking back, it doesn’t look a lot like work!”

Meanwhile, A Current Affair presenter Tracy Grimshaw commented: “Oh congratulations Sylvia and @peter_stefanovic. Outstanding production.” And Sally Obermeder added: “Congrats! What beautiful news!”

The exciting news comes just days after Sylvia opened up on air about the difficult journey to conceive their first son Oscar. Speaking candidly during Wednesday’s episode of Today Extra, the 34-year-old journalist revealed she underwent IVF in order to have son Oscar with 38-year-old Sky News presenter Peter.

Sylvia and co-host David Campbell were chatting to mother Brooke Campbell about IVF, and more specifically the difficult decision of what to do with unused embryos after couples have decided not to have any more children, when she made the admission.

“Such an emotional attachment to those embryos, long before they become the baby or the child that you grow to love,” Sylvia said, before revealing it was a matter close to her own heart.

“Brooke, I know from my personal experience with IVF that so much goes into having a successful embryo,” Sylvia added, fighting back tears. “Having something sitting there that gives you the opportunity to make life for your family. How are you and your husband coping?”

“The silver lining in having unused embryos is that you’ve had your miracles. You’ve had your babies. So that’s the beautiful part of it,” Sylvia added, wrapping up the heartfelt interview.
