Substantiating the happy news, a representative for the presenter explained to MailOnline that she is ‘excited’ to welcome the newborn next year.
‘Seema is very happy and excited to be expecting her first baby in 2023 and has had lots of love and support from her family and colleagues in the industry. The broadcasters have been very supportive and happy for Seema,’ they explained.
Beaming at the daytime event, Seema teamed the slinky number with a pair of practical white trainers and carried a beige cross body handbag.
She wore her brunette locks with a hint of a wave and opted for a subtle makeup look to enhance her natural beauty.
The presenter remains tight-lipped about her personal life and has never shared the name of her husband, or the date of their wedding.

Despite the joyous pregnancy news, Seema isn’t set to slow down anytime soon, with the representative explaining that November will see the star presenting the Champions League for BT Sport alongside Premier League’s Global coverage.
She will also take to BBC’s UK Championship Snooker and Qatar 2022 World Cup as part of ITV’s presenting team.
Last year Seema spoke to Sportsmail as she discussed her broadcasting career ahed of the European Championship.
Taking a moment to reflect back on those early days, the time before her career spectacularly burst into life, she outlined a conversation shared with one of her close neighbours in the cul-de-sac where they lived.
The elderly lady, who is described as ‘lovely’, was politely taken aback when told what Seema wanted to pursue for her career.

Now, years on, the chat is occasionally used as motivation, and a reminder of the obstacles overcome.
Seema explained: ‘When I said I wanted to be a presenter, she was like, “Seema, but you don’t know anyone in the industry. These sorts of things don’t happen to people like us. Are you sure that’s really what you want to do?”‘
Over the course of the last decade, she has set about proving everyone, and everything, wrong and done so with a rich beam of a smile, self-confidence and a slightly nervy bundle of excitement.

‘There were moments where I was thinking whether it was right for me and whether I should be doing this,’ she said.
‘It was around the time when I’d just broken into the industry. I was working on CBBC’s Sportsround and Match of the Day Kickabout as a reporter, I was freelance, and also on The Wright Stuff on Channel 5.
‘Some weeks are full, you’re working Sunday all the way through to the following Sunday. But then you might not have work for another three weeks.

‘You’ll suddenly get one day that’s coming up and you’re really looking forward to it, but it can get cancelled.
‘It’s interesting because when you’re in the creative world, you sometimes do wait for the phone to ring or an email to come through. I was in that phase during my CBBC and Wright Stuff days, because I wasn’t permanent in any of those fields.
‘All I wanted to do was progress, but because I didn’t have enough experience, it was hard for any bosses to take a bit of a gamble on me.’
