One Show host Angela Scanlon is pregnant with her second baby, says she feels “very lucky and excited”
The One Show’s Angela Scanlon has revealed she is pregnant with her second child.
The 37-year-old shared the news with fans today as she showed off her growing baby bump.
She captioned the snap: “SO, it’s happening !! I am pregnant and apparently already preparing for work. Baby Horgan The Second (official title) is coming next spring ❣️
“I feel very lucky and excited and also nervous about jumping on a trampoline (forever).”
The Irish star, who married Roy Horgan in 2014, is already a mom to three-year-old Ruby Ellen.
Angela returned to work when Ruby was just 12 weeks old and recently admitted she considered the lockdown to be her maternity leave.
In an interview with The Sun’s Fabulous magazine, she revealed: “I got back to work really quickly and one of the ways I got over the lack of lockdown control was to think of it as the maternity leave that I never tuned in. “
The star said the experience had been difficult and made her realize that she was not invincible.
“I thought of myself as that machine, but childbirth made me realize that I wasn’t, after all. All the ideas I had of myself were shattered. I needed help. I needed my husband’s help, I needed the help of a midwife, I needed the help of a lactation consultant, ”she said.
“She was born during the storm of the Beast from the East [in February 2018] and so no member of my family could come and support me and hold me, and I felt a tremendous sense of isolation.
“Getting back to work so early, even though I sometimes think it was not the right thing to do, was also the thing that kept me hanging up a bit at a time when everything felt very scary to me.”
