The Top Billing host and former Miss SA Jo-Ann Strauss is pregnant!

Rumours have been swirling for weeks that the beauty, who's married to Michael Held, a German orthopedic surgeon, is expecting her first child. And she just confirmed the news! ‘‘You know how me and my hubby are about our private lives,’’ she said via email. ‘‘All I can say is we are very happy.’’

In recent week eagle-eyed viewers noticed Jo had a small bump on the show. The 32-year-old hottie posted an Instagram snap two weeks ago of her in a gorgeous dress by Durban-based designer Gideon while shooting a Top Billing insert. One follower asked, ‘‘Jo are you pregnant? I thought I saw a bumb there."

Another eagle-eyed fan on Facebook also became suspicious after she saw Jo’s recent interview with The Bold and the Beautiful actor Texas Battle in Cape Town and asked her on Facebook if she’s pregnant. Jo however didn’t respond to any of the rumours.

The bubbly TV presenter and her hubby, who's also a model, are very private. They got hitched last year. Michael hails from Munich and Jo speaks German fluently. The couple stay in Cape Town.

Jo-Ann, who grew up in Blackheath, Cape Town, told the Sunday World newspaper earlier this year that she had a loving childhood. ‘‘I had a red bicycle and my brother had a blue one. We would cruise the streets and play outside all the time. I wish more children could experience childhoods like ours – we were rich in love and are blessed to have supportive parents.’’  Well, we know she’ll make a wonderful mother!

How we spotted Jo’s pregnancy . . .

Jo has been spotted with looser dresses on the show.

Is that a bump we see?

We also spotted her in one of her Instagram pics tucking into burgers, chips and strawberry milkshakes with her copresenter Janez Vermeiren. Cravings, Jo?
