On Tuesday during the 5pm news, anchor Renee Passal announced she's pregnant.
It was done in a mock "This Week in Mining" segment, with the video of the ultrasound taken at 10 weeks.
"We are excited to be having a baby," she said. "I've been feeling pretty sick for the past few months, unfortunately. It's finally starting to get better. My husband, Aaron, has been very patient. For all my friends and viewers, thank you for all the well-wishes."
The due date is in August.
Co-workers were fooled into thinking Renee was leaving for good, when she said she was getting a new job and would have to leave Channel 10. But really, she just meant she was getting the all-important job of being a mom, and would have to be on maternity leave.
Blue and pink frosted cupcakes were also part of the big reveal day for the WDIO crew, courtesy of Sue and Ben Holt.
Stay tuned for more baby updates, later this year. And yes, we will share if it's a boy or a girl!
