Newsreader expecting child

Natasha expecting baby

TV presenter and newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky is expecting a baby. Child Care Costs may not be an issue for Natasha but it’s always worth weighing up the pro’s and cons of the various options.

The Daily Mail is reporting that she is three months pregnant. The baby will be the first for Natasha and her husband, investment banker Justin Bower.

The 35-year-old’s pregnancy comes just months after she moved to Channel 5, becoming Britain’s highest paid newsreader.  She was poached from the BBC where she had a variety of roles including newsreading and appearing on the first series of Strictly Come Dancing.

She won the show with her dance partner Brendon Cole.

Her spokesman last night confirmed the pregnancy, but said Miss Kaplinsky had not known about it when she switched channels as she signed the deal in October

The spokesman told The Daily Mail: “I can confirm Natasha is pregnant and she’s never been happier.”

He said the newsreader had made no secret of her and her husband’s desire to have a child together.

He added: “It is very early days.”
