On top of celebrating her husband Neil Varcoe’s birthday, the couple’s two-year-old daughter Molly had her “first day at daycare”.

As for herself, the journalist joked that it was an exciting day for her because of a “big lunch/nap”.

Edwina shared a gallery of sweet snaps alongside the caption, including a selfie of the trio and a cute photo of Molly leaning against a brick wall with her hands in the pockets of her denim overalls.

A number of Edwina’s followers took to the comments to applaud her and Neil on their parenting milestone and point out how stylish Molly looks.

“Good luck Molly!” one person wrote, while another added, “You’ve got this guys”.

“I need to learn how to look that cool,” someone else shared, followed by a fourth who remarked, “Look at her swagger”.

“Wow Edwina it’s all happening in your house,” a different user said. “Hope your gorgeous daughter loves daycare.”


Neil also jokingly commented on the post, writing: “I’ve just heard that she's now running the centre.”

Back in August Edwina announced live on-air that she and Neil were expecting their second child together.

“In developing news, news that will be developing news, news that will be developing for the next six months, we will be having another baby,” she said on Sunrise.

She also shared that she is due in February and while they already know the sex of the baby, they’ve decided to keep it secret for now.

Edwina’s post comes shortly after she called out Prime Minister Scott Morrison for not making rapid antigen tests free for all Australians.

The presenter took to Twitter to say that the lack of supply and price gouging has resulted in a “complete mess”.

"Rapid antigen tests should be free. Full stop,” she tweeted.
