A huge congratulations are in order for The Weekend Today presenter Jayne Azzopardi who has confirmed the arrival of her second child!
The Channel Nine reporter and husband Trent Butler welcomed a baby boy, their second child together, and were clearly over the moon.
Taking to Instagram, the couple announced the exciting news.
"Hands and heart full.❤️Perfect little Theodore Phillip arrived last week and completed our family. Mum and dad are busy, tired and feeling very grateful for our healthy & handsome little surprise package.
"Extra special that he gets his middle name from his much-loved Poppy who he just missed out on meeting," Jayne wrote alongside a sweet first snap of the bub.

The 40-year-old revealed she was expecting for the second time via Instagram in December last year.
"Brace for chaos! Anyone with tips on how to cope with two boys under two... send them our way please," Jayne wrote alongside a snap of her reading to firstborn son Joey from a book aptly named 'You're a Big Brother'.

While weatherman Tim Davies added: "How good! Congrats ❤"
Close friend Sylvia Jeffreys also shared her congratulations, writing: "Hoorayyyyyyyy. And what a sweet big brother Joey will be."
The news of Jayne's pregnancy came just 10 months after welcoming son Joey.

Jayne has been very open about her struggles to fall pregnant.
"I feel compelled to say that it hasn't been easy for us and I know that there will be people watching who are struggling to conceive or... have experienced loss themselves and I know they'll be happy for me," she told Today viewers last year following her first pregnancy.
"But I also know that it can be extra painful to hear somebody else announcing happy news so I hope everybody gets their happy announcement, but we are just, we are just delighted."

In an emotional essay for Essential Baby Jayne opened up about her IVF journey and the bravery it takes.
"It's something that can be difficult to talk about, and as a result, difficult for anyone who hasn't experienced it to understand what it must be like," the journalist wrote.
"For many, it's not the same thing as losing a living breathing child you have come to know and love - but it's losing everything you hoped and imagined that child to be.
"She added that while many women do share their heartbreaking experiences with others, those who don't are equally as brave."
