Claudia Winkleman pregnant with third child

Claudia Winkleman is pregnant with her third child.

The 'Film 2011' host - who already has two children, Jake, seven, and four-year-old Matilda, with husband Kris Thykier - has confirmed she will welcome baby number three into the world later this year.

Writing on her twitter page, she said: "Thank you very much for your messages. It's true I'm having a baby."

The 39-year-old star then added: "Although to be frank, on the scan it looked more like a goat."

Despite her happiness, Claudia - who also presents 'Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two' - later told fans she is suffering from severe pregnancy cravings.

She tweeted: "Re sickness, am drinking ginger beer and eating marmite. It's actually repulsive...(sic)"

Claudia and Kris have been married for 11 years and friends say they always planned to have a big family.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: "Kris and Claudia were ecstatic when they discovered there would be a new addition to the family. I think it was always part of Claudia's plan to have a large brood."
