Edwina ‘Eddy’ Bartholomew has introduced her baby boy to Sunrise viewers as she made a chaotic appearance on the breakfast show from maternity leave.

The Channel Seven star and her husband Neil Varcoe welcomed the newborn named Thomas, on March the 1st.

Before becoming a mum-of-two, Edwina already had her hands full with daughter Molly, who was born in December 2019.

“It’s been wonderful, it’s been such a lovely two months,” the 38-year-old told colleagues David Koch and Natalie Barr from home on Friday.

“He was born on the 1st of March, so it’s been wonderful, delightful, joyful, challenging, exhausting.”

Edwina then revealed that her and Neil do not plan to have any more kids, saying she feels like her “family is complete”. After starting well, the interview quickly went off the rails when Tom “cracked it” and began screaming at the top of his lungs.

A laughing Edwina labelled the moment “the beautiful chaos of motherhood”.

“This is motherhood, and you have to embrace it in all of its joys, all of its chaos, all of its disasters and all of these special moments we can share with the nation like now,” she said.

“It’s just the most delightful experience isn’t it!”

After wrapping up the chat, the team paid tribute to Eddy and all of the other parents raising little kids around Australia in the lead-up to Mother’s Day.

Sport presenter Mark Beretta said: “that’s what is so beautiful about that – it is so real, that’s how it is.”

Natalie Barr added that “every single parent” could relate to the chaotic scenes viewers saw at Eddy’s home, saying “we all know what it’s like”.

Edwina announced Thomas’ arrival on Instagram two days after he was delivered, sharing a few special snaps of the newborn on social media.
