Matt Edmondson reveals his wife is expecting their second child – and she's due on Christmas Day

MATT Edmonson has revealed his wife Bryony is pregnant with their second child.

The Radio 1 presenter, 35, appeared on Lorraine earlier today and announced they’re expecting a baby girl.


Matt and long-term partner Bryony, 34, are already parents to five-year-old Ivy, and the star shared his hopes of a Christmas Day arrival, adding it is “really imminent”.

“Holly and Ivy for Christmas would be great”, he said on the ITV chat show, explaining that: “Ivy came three and a half weeks early, as I was about to film The Xtra Factor.

“So I'm assuming this one is coming on Christmas Day, but it could happen any time now.”

He and other half Bryony – who tied the knot in 2013 – have shared their excitement of Ivy becoming an older sister, but admit they haven’t settled on their unborn daughter’s moniker just yet.

“It’s a girl!”, the former Xtra Factor host exclaimed, adding that “we’ve got a negotiation going on still about names”.

Matt joked “I've mixed up my list for children's names and dog names and now I can't remember what was for a child and what was for a dog.

“We've already got a dog but you've always got to have a list of potential names just in case.”

The broadcaster’s incredible news comes after he opened up about his cyclothymia diagnosis last month, calling the moment he was diagnosed “life-changing”.

Matt first revealed the details of his mental and behavioural disorder in January, but recently penned a lengthy Instagram post about the condition.

Cyclothymia is typically a lesser-known condition which can cause drastic mood changes, and is often linked to bipolar disorder.

The star told his fans on November 2 that he’s experienced “periods where I felt incredibly low”.

He wrote: “After years of struggling, simply getting the label Cyclothymia placed on how I was feeling was life changing.

“It helped me understand that if I could spot myself going ‘up’ or ‘down’ I could do something to intercept it.”

Matt concluded: “I’m planning to chat a bit more about Cyclothymia in the future, I’ll keep you posted”.
