Congratulations to Katherine Ryan{ =nofollow}, who is expecting her second child. The comedy queen, 37, revealed the happy news during a live recording of her podcast Telling Everybody Everything in Kentish Town on Thursday. It will be Katherine's first child with her husband Bobby Koostra.

According to The Sun, the All That Glitters host didn't tell the audience her due date, saying her main piece of advice to expectant mums would be not to reveal the exact time the baby is due. (She also praised Harry and Meghan for doing the same thing during their Oprah interview.) It's the first time Katherine - who is already mum to 11-year-old Violet - has spoken about her pregnancy, though she did appear on Celebrity Juice last week with her bump visible.

Bobby and Katherine used to date when they were in high school in Canada, but they only reunited when the comedian was filming an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? in the country. They then parted ways - Katherine had Violet, and Bobby got married. But after they met in Canada, they stayed together, with the couple opting for for a civil partnership in 2019. Katherine told the Radio Times: 'We didn’t have a wedding, I didn’t need to put on a white dress and pretend to be a virgin. That ship has sailed!’

She also told MailOnline that she was grateful that her and Bobby lived separate lives before they were reunited. 'But then I was glad that we weren't together for 20 years as well because I went off and I did all of these interesting things and he went off and did all these interesting things,' she said. 'I don't think most men are really ready to be married until they've been divorced. I never really wanted to get married, it's when I became totally satisfied with the idea of being alone that he magically walked into my life.'
