Pregnant Kate Silverton Is Ready To Pop!

 Pregnant Kate Silverton is ready to pop! PA

With just days to go until she gives birth to her first baby, Kate Silverton is counting down to his or her arrival on Twitter.

The BBC news presenter has been tweeting her support to fellow mums-to-be as she waits for her labour to start, saying:

"For those of you also waiting - good luck & enjoy the nesting - I'm not at the 'pineapple & curry' stage yet but next week maybe so ;-)"

She then added she was thoroughly enjoying her maternity leave with her husband, Michael Heron, and of course her bump, tweeting the sweet message:

"Thanks for all yr lovely messages - time for some raspberry tea and back to snuggle w hubby on a dark wet morning #enjoyingnotworkingnow!"

The presenter is due any day. She has previously referred to her pregnancy as a 'miracle' after conceiving naturally following four failed rounds of IVF.

Good luck Kate and Michael!
