He clarified: "Well, Hayley is. But given how clucky I am, I'm tagging along for the ride whether she wants me or not.

"Congratulations @theholtbolt - you're going to be the most incredible Mum x (sic)."

Melissa Stokes wrote on Instagram: "Hayley!!!! I'm so thrilled for excited as when I found out I was having a baby,".

Political reporter Jessica Mutch McKay, who welcomed her first child with bodyguard husband Iain McKay also congratulated Holt.

"Yay! Congratulations - such exciting news. Now for the wild ride of being pregnant on TV!"

On Facebook, viewers also expressed their excitement.

"Huge congratulations Hayley, you will be such a gorgeous mum. So loving and caring. It's an exciting year for you already," a viewer wrote.

The viewer joked fellow Breakfast host Matty McLean might be asked to babysit.

Others were quick to ask who the father was - something Holt did not reveal today.

One person wrote on Facebook: "Question is, who's the Dad lol."

Another commented: "Who's the Daddy??? Only asking because I know you've had unhappy relationships in the past, and I always hoped you'd meet someone special and right for you, because you're an amazing person [sic]."

Others were less impressed with the news:

"Wow Hayley is the only woman who has ever become pregnant! It must have been the immaculate conception!

"So what? About exciting as Jacinda's [Ardern]...and EVERYONE else's... (sic)."
