Edwina Bartholomew brought good news to our feeds when she announced the arrival of her healthy baby boy, which she named Thomas.

The news comes two years after giving birth to her daughter Molly in December 2019.

Her little bundle of joy arrived on Tuesday, March 1, Edwina and her husband Neil announced the happy news just two days after.

“Some small news from our family,” the new mum captioned a touching photo of her son.

“Thomas Donald Elliott Varcoe born on the 1st of March, 2022. At such a difficult time for so many, many people, we hope Tom’s little face puts a smile on yours.”

During her pregnancy Edwina shared glimpses of her maternity style, and it was surprisingly approachable.

Captioning a mirror selfie of herself wearing a powder blue shirt from Bianca Spender and black cigarette pants, the Sunrise presenter wrote: “Bless you @biancaspender for designing a shirt that works for all my different shapes and sizes.

“And to @ripematernity for creating maternity pants that actually stay up.”

Every woman can replicate this look plus, you can continue to wear shirts well after you’ve given birth.

Edwina’s daughter Molly is officially a big sister.

On her last day at Sunrise before going on maternity leave, Edwina rocked this sky clue and bell-sleeved shirt with black maternity pants, which have seen her through the pregnancy. In her caption, she shared her hopes for some time to relax before becoming a mum of two. “Hoping for a few sleep-ins before we delve back into the baby bubble in a few weeks time xx,” she wrote.

Edwina looked amazing in her black and white chequered bikini with high waisted briefs. She spoke on her Instagram about how it helped her feel comfortable while eight months pregnant despite not feeling her best. “It’s a big deal for me to wear a bikini, but here I am. I’ve decided life is way too short to sweat the bumps, big and small,” she shared.

We have found the exact bikini set, and you can shop it below.

Perhaps some may find Edwina’s decision to style her gingham patterned face mask with her red and black spotted shirt a little much. But we love her clashing tones and colours! The power of cigarette pants translates to any time in a woman’s life, and we love the idea of ditching the denim for nine months to fill out these Audrey Hepburn approved pants.
