Holly Willoughby will ‘keep working’ until she goes into labour

This Morning host vows to stay on show’s sofa until baby is ready


Holly Willoughby has revealed she’s not planning to take any maternity leave before she gives birth to her third child in 3 months’ time.


In fact, the This Morning host is planning to be on TV right up until she goes into labour.

“It’s so hard to know when I’m going to go into labour,” she told the Mirror.

“I’m just going to keep working until one day I don’t come back in again. That’s what I’ve done before.”

But the 33-year-old, whose due date is in October, isn’t looking for sympathy.

“My job is sat on a sofa. I’m sitting down all the time on This Morning, and on Celebrity Juice I’m behind a desk. So don’t feel too sorry for me,” she joked.

The Surprise, Surprise host is already mum to Harry, 5, and 3-year-old Belle with her husband of 7 years, TV producer Dan Baldwin, 38.

And the mum-of-2 isn’t going to find out the gender of her third child.

“Whatever comes it will be exciting,” Holly says. “We found out the gender with Belle but we didn’t with Harry. Hand on heart, I don’t mind if I have a boy or girl.

“I’m lucky to have one of each. They’re both wonderful.”
