Newshub's Samantha Hayes pregnant with first baby

  • 03/05/2019

Samantha Hayes has announced she's expecting her first baby with her partner Jeroen 'Jay' Blaauw.

The Newshub Live at 6 presenter shared the news on Instagram on Friday, shortly after her tell-all interview about her new relationship with Blaauw, who is from the Netherlands.

"Super excited to finally break the news that Jay & I are having a baby!" she captioned an image of her baby bump on Instagram.

"We've been keeping it under wraps but the bump has now well and truly popped. Can't wait to meet our little one in spring." 

Last week, Hayes told Woman's Day she first met Blaauw four years ago, but the pair reconnected during her recent trip to the Andes where she climbed Mount Aconcagua.

The pair were part of a group of 60 climbers attempting to summit the mountain. Hayes was forced to turn back, due to altitude sickness, at which point Blaauw refused to leave her side.

"And for that reason my mum absolutely loves him," she said in the interview.

Kiwi celebrities Matilda and Art Green, Sharyn Casey and Anika Moa all congratulated Hayes on her exciting news on social media.
