Edwina Bartholomew announces the birth of her son
Sunrise presenter Edwina ‘Eddy’ Bartholomew, has given birth to a baby boy named Thomas.
The breakfast television star and her husband Neil Varcoe welcomed their new bundle of joy into the world on Tuesday and both mum and baby are doing well.
The gorgeous tot is Eddy and Neil’s second child, after they had a daughter called Molly in December 2019.
Tom took his time to come into the world, arriving eight days after he was due to be born on February 21.
“Some small news from our family,” Edwina wrote when announcing the birth via Instagram on Thursday.

“At such a difficult time for so many, many people, we hope Tom’s little face puts a smile on yours.”
“Welcome to the world Thomas.”
Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac simply said: “Perfection.”
The happy news comes after Edwina left her newsreader role on the Channel Seven brekky show for a few months of maternity leave in late February.
“Molly is very excited to welcome a new baby into our family and is currently practising her nappy changes on ‘Dolly’,” the new mum-of-two told viewers.
“Hopefully that enthusiasm continues after the real baby is actually born!
“It’s hard to completely relax when you are raising a toddler, but hopefully I’ll enjoy just a few sleep-ins before we are in the newborn baby bubble.”
The 38-year-old had delighted Sunrise fans when she announced her pregnancy live on air last August.
“In developing news, news that will be developing for the next six months, we will be having another baby,” she said.
