Sian Welby announces baby news

Sian Welby has announced she is expecting a baby.
The 37-year-old revealed the news live on air during her Capital Breakfast show this morning.
This will be the presenter’s first child with fiancé Jake Beckett whom she got engaged to in August 2023.

Sian also shared the news with her 167k Instagram followers in a post captioned: “We have some news…. ❤️”
The mother-to-be uploaded the sweetest snap filled with an array of Polaroid pictures to announce the happy news.
The Polaroid pictures included one of her and her fiancé looking shocked at a pregnancy test, one of Jake kissing her pregnant stomach, and many more alongside the words: “We’re having a baby.”

During this morning’s breakfast show, Sian shared the news with her radio co-hosts Roman Kemp and Chris Stark.
The presenter who is due in the Summer said: “I’ve got a bit of an announcement for you… I’m pregnant! I don’t know how I’ve managed to keep it from you for so long.”
“The lies, the deceit, the mocktails! I couldn’t wait to tell you. This is a whole new journey for me and I want to take you all on it with me, and don’t worry I’m not going anywhere!”

“This is going to be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to share it with you all.”
Reacting to the news, Roman jumped up to hug her and exclaimed: “Oh my god! Oh mate I’m so happy for you and Jake as well!”
Chris was equally thrilled as he said: “Is this real? It is the most exciting news ever!”

Fans of the show commented on Capital Fm’s official announcement and noted that many changes are occurring on the show.
Last week, Roman Kemp announced his departure from the radio station after hosting the breakfast show for eight years.
Speaking on air earlier last week, an emotional Roman confirmed he will officially leave the station in six weeks.

He said: “The last like, eight and a half years of my life have just been so incredible being part of this machine.
“It’s been the funniest, the saddest, the most outright wild time that I’ve had being a part of Capital and the Global family and when you set out to do a job of this magnitude, you never think that one day there will be a moment where you have to say goodbye. You don’t think that that time will come.”
“What I can tell you is I’m not saying goodbye right now, I’m not leaving the show today and that’s it, but it’s not far away.”

“It will come and that goodbye will come in five to six weeks. It’s not a decision that has come overnight either, it’s massive, I’ve not found it easy at all.”
“Capital is my family, you as the wonderful listeners that you’ve been, you’ve been with me at my best times and my absolute lowest…
“Capital and Global have helped changed me. I was 22 years old when I first joined Capital and it’s built me into the man that I am today, it is all that I know. But I know that now is the right time to leave and now is the right time to move on.

“You listening, and the people in this room, every single person in this room, my producing team, Sian and Chris, Sonny who has done it in the past and Vick Hope who had done it in the past. It’s everyone.
“The next couple of weeks as I kind of approach the end of my time here on Capital, it’s going to be so tough. I love this place so much, I love it.”
“I love the station, I love everything about it, Capital is my family. And I also love the connection that you and I, the listeners, have built together. It’s changed.

“I know that it started out as me being just Martin Kemp’s son, I hope that now you can call me your friend.”
Roman added: “I’ve loved every single moment of my time at Capital. The last 10 years have been amazing and hosting the legendary Capital Breakfast is the best job ever. But after almost seven years of early alarms, I’m looking forward to some lie-ins and it’s time to hand over the baton!
“It’s been a privilege and an honour to wake up millions of people every day. It’s the best job in radio and I’ll miss our listeners and the team at Global lots. Whoever the next host of Capital Breakfast is, they’re in for the most incredible ride.”

During Wednesday’s broadcast, Roman revealed that Jordan North would be taking over as his replacement.
