The Daily Edition host welcomed a healthy baby girl in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Tuesday and it seems her little girl is fitting right into the family fold.

Sharing a sweet video on her Instagram account, Sally and her oldest daughter Annabelle, five, cuddle and kiss Elyssa Rose.

“Indescribable joy and gratitude,” an elated Sally captioned the touching footage.

Meanwhile the 43-year-old’s colleagues and close friends have reached out to congratulate Sally and her husband Marcus on the new addition.

“It’s a girl! So delighted for my beautiful friend @sallyobermeder (& Marcus & Annabelle!) …FINALLY Elyssa Rose Obermeder made it out to join us.

Not punctual. Just like her mum. Another girl for our clan!!!! Now hurry home from bloody Milwaukee so I can snuggle both of you!!!” Sunrise star Samantha Armytage wrote.

“Wooooooooooohooooooo…so much love .. xxxxxxxx,” Larry Emdur added.

“Huge congrats Sal!!!! Such an amazingly emotional ride you have all been on. Sending love and best wishes. Beautiful name. Nat,” Channel Seven newsreader Natalie Barr said.

For the past few weeks, the star has been based in the US awaiting the arrival of her second daughter via a surrogate called Rachel.

Rachel and Sally have formed a close bond during their surrogacy journey.

After the journalist conquered breast cancer through intensive chemotherapy, she and Marcus turned to surrogacy for their second child.

Earlier this year, Sally confirmed her exciting news with a family pic which featured Annabelle holding a sign that said “I’m going to be a big sister.”

“Thrilled to bits to share that @marcusobermeder and I are adding to our family thanks to the most incredible surrogate,” Sally said at the time.

Sally and her sister Maha Koraiem share a precious moment with Elyssa Rose.
