This Morning’s soap presenter Sharon Marshall used her appearance on today’s show to share the happy news that she is pregnant with her first child.
Sharon, 46, is This Morning’s soap expert, while also being a writer for Emmerdale. But instead of sharing soap gossip, she had some of her own today.
Revealing the news live on air, Sharon told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “I’m pregnant. I am probably going to say everything wrong. I am a little bit emotional.”
The presenters were delighted for her, with Holly quick to say: “It is the most wonderful news.”
Sharon was left in tears after making the announcement, but insisted they were tears of joy.
Phillip and Holly were left in the dark about the news, and when Phil asked Sharon who knew, she revealed: “I told Dr Chris very early so he has been keeping the secret. Myself and my partner Paul Fletcher we’re 14 weeks along, and we let Dr Chris into the secret a little while ago.
“He is the king of the corridor consultation. We tell him everything.”
Thankyou so much for your lovely messages, Paul and I are beyond happy. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/NFLjFApotC

Sharon has said her baby is due in July and that her husband Mark is ‘thrilled’: “He is really really happy, he is thrilled. We can’t wait, we are just so happy. It will be about July.”
Massive congratulations to Sharon from everyone at The Bite!
