Em Rusciano has announced she is pregnant, a year after she experienced a miscarriage.

The radio host took to Instagram to share the happy news on Sunday night, posting a snap of herself against Abigail Breslin’s Superfreak dance sequence in the film Little Miss Sunshine.

The comedian jokes “It’s gonna take more than a superfreak strip routine and a Kombi van to get me out of this one,”

“I’m totally pregnant and so happy my heart may burst in my chest at any moment.” Although I’m not so much little miss sunshine as little miss teary, bloated, nauseous yet ravenously hungry,” she wrote.

“Let me tell you it’s a different ball game doing this at 39 to 21. It’s a good thing that the stretch marks are in place and ready to go! #geriatricpregnancy #stretchypants #nippleslikefighterpilotsthumbs.”

This morning on her show 2DAYFM Breakfast with Em, Grant & Ed, the radio presenter revealed she was expecting a boy.

Em and her husband Scott Barrow already have two daughters, Marchella and Odette.

Last year, the entertainer opened up about her miscarriage, and she was taking time off to grieve.

The mother-to-be was planning to name her unborn son Ray.

“I was going to announce it this Monday as we’d hit 13 weeks, but instead I will be at home in the most exquisite pain I can possibly fathom. Yesterday I found out that my little boy, was lost to me,” Em wrote on Facebook.

“I’d only just seen my baby the week before on the ultrasound, kicking and waving. I’d heard his heartbeat and began to imagine what type of person he’d become. What colour hair he’d have, I wondered if he’d be serious like his dad or ridiculous like his mother, or perhaps a little bit of both.

“But now, all I have is that one grainy black and white image, and the rest I will have to imagine. I’m not sure I’m built to withstand this kind of heartbreak, I’m not sure any mother is. We named him Ray, it was Scotty’s suggestion.”

Congratulations to the happy family!
