The popular Irish presenter announced her pregnancy last November.

The star of those Garnier Nutrisse adverts posted a cute picture to Instagram, writing: "SO. I've been baking for 6 months now... and I've made a bun! It's currently in the oven & will be ready by Springtime.

"We are so, SO thrilled (since I've taken my head out of the toilet bowl) and can't wait to welcome a mad, wonderful little human into our world."

She added: "Really hoping he/she is ginger."

Since then, Angela has shared her pregnancy on Instagram, recently adding a photo with her hair-advert-pals, Davina McCall and Holly Willoughby.

But it looked like the waiting was getting to her just two days before she gave birth, as she took to Instagram to post a picture of the words, "good things take time."

In the caption she added: "Patience has NEVER been my strong suit. I want everything yesterday & I am very frustrated with myself when things don't happen quickly enough 😤 Anyone??!

"These last few months I've learned that working on something slowly & steadily is a different thing. It's so easy to judge your life on the 'wins' but actually having a BIG plan is the thing that keeps me sane (a little bit sane anyway)! 🙏🏻

"That & marshmallows & tea."

The Radio 2 presenter has been a regular fixture, alongside Matt Baker, on The One Show since 2015. And for most of last year, she covered the maternity leave of full-time presenter, Alex Jones.

Now it's her turn to take mat leave - but we'll no doubt see Angela back on our screens in the near future.
