The TV and radio host revealed the news to her radio colleagues in Melbourne radio station Mix 101.1 on Tuesday:

Of baby Peggy's name, Swan said she and partner Chris had originally picked out another name.

"She was going to be Josephine, and then we just went, you know what, let's be a little bit brave and have something a little bit different, so we went with Peggy."

Joking about her busy family household, Swan said this year:

"I think that if I ever have a third child and it is a girl, that I will fully lose my mind!"

"I have two sons and sometimes I think this is God's way of acknowledging that, as a parent and as a person, I mean well but am generally too goofy to be trusted with a proper responsibility.

"Raising a daughter seems so ... complicated."
