The ITV news presenter shocked the rest of the team by dropping the news that she was expecting her first child live on telly on Good Morning Britain.
Hawkins is expecting the bundle of joy with her husband of six years businessman Mark Herbert and the new addition is expected in February next year.
The 38-year-old meekly interrupted a pregnancy related discussion by co presenters Susanna Reid, Sean Fletcher and Ben Shephard saying, “I have some news. It’s quite nerve-wracking because I’m pregnant. I’m happy to announce I’m expecting a baby.”
The presenter later took to Twitter to say thank you to fans and well wishers for all the good wishes that have poured in since the announcement.
