‘Feeling very lucky & excited & also nervous about jumping on a trampoline (forever).’
It comes after Angela spoke about motherhood during a March interview with The Daily Mail.
Yay! The presenter, 37, shared the happy news on her social media as she showed off her baby bump
Announcement: She captioned the snap: ‘SO, this is happening!! I’m pregnant & apparently already prepping for actual labour. Baby Horgan The Second (official title) arrives next spring!’
She candidly said: ‘No one can prepare you for becoming a mother. I have a ton of nieces and nephews and genuinely thought I knew what was coming, but it’s completely different. There is no manual you get given when leaving the hospital.
‘Motherhood is a huge gear change. So much of my identity was tied to my career — having a baby and taking time off work meant I didn’t know who the hell I was any more.
‘After I gave birth, my returning TV presenting role with Dara O’Briain on Robot Wars fell through. That felt devastating. But I looked down at this little human I had pushed out and I thought, ”OK, you know what, I can survive”.’

Further reflecting on her return to work after 12 weeks, Angela said she was ‘like a deer in the headlights, fuelled by caffeine and suffering insomnia.’
She continued: ‘Often I would beat myself up if I had to travel for work or if I wasn’t around for bedtime.
‘But I learned to ask for help — and to take it when it was offered. That isn’t being weak, it’s human.’

Last month Angela was rushed to hospital after being involved in a serious crash with a private ambulance and two other cars.
According to The Sun, the star was in an Addison Lee private car at 9.30am, when it collided with the ambulance on north London’s The Bishops Avenue – nicknamed ‘billionaires’ row’ due to its concentration of sprawling mansions.
Witnesses claimed Angela’s vehicle was hit by a van which had first been struck by a BMW. Angela has regularly stood in for permanent host Alex Jones on the BBC show.

Angela later shared a video updating fans on her well-being and said she was ‘absolutely fine’.
She said: ‘I’m absolutely fine. There was a car accident yesterday, I was in it. It looked pretty bad, nobody was hurt thankfully. We crashed into an ambulance.
‘They were amazing, everyone was amazing. I did have to go to hospital just as a precaution but I’m fine.
‘Took a day off, absolutely fine. Both drivers are fine. Sorry if anyone panicked. I panicked a bit when I saw it!’
Location: The accident occurred south of East Finchley
A local told The Sun: ‘It was a serious crash which involved four vehicles. It made a hell of a racket. Quite loud bangs. It was four vehicles in total.
‘People looked shocked and shook up. The damage to the Addison Lee was quite bad and the ambulance itself had to be taken away. It was shocking. The ambulance arrived quickly and took Angela away.’
A London ambulance spokesperson told MailOnline on Wednesday: ‘We were called at 9:27am on 14 September to reports of a road traffic collision involving a private ambulance on Bishops Avenue, N2.
