On Tuesday, Jeffreys stepped out in Sydney sporting a noticeable baby bump—and a very chic, all-black ensemble. She and Stefanovic wed in a lavish Kangaroo Valley ceremony in 2017 and have previously expressed their desire to start a family.

"We'd love a houseful of kids," Jeffreys told the Australian Women's Weekly that year. "Sadly, it's not happening in the immediate future. We're not in a rush to get there."

The two former Nine breakfast presenters experienced a professional rough patch at the end of 2018 when the both parted ways with TODAY and TODAY Extra in the wake of Peter's brother Karl Stefanovic's highly publicised fallout with the network and the ramifications of "Uber-gate." Jeffreys is currently still at Nine, working on podcasts and other special projects, while Peter has moved on to Sky News. Karl continued to host season 2 of This Time Next Year.

"She's happy. Everyone's on their feet," Peter told Kyle and Jackie O this July. "[Karl] cares about his work, and he's great at his work, and Sylvia's great at her work. They're both great journalists."
