Sunrise's Edwina Bartholomew stuns with 'twins' announcement

Sunrise's Edwina Bartholomew recently announced she and husband Neil Varcoe are expecting their second baby, and now she's left her followers stunned with an announcement of "twins".

But before you jump to conclusions, the twins were actually born to her Highland cow Shirley Manson's, who welcomed two healthy calves at the couple's Blue Mountains farmhouse.

Edwina had shared a photo of Shirley and a video of a FaceTime call where she and Neil were introduced to the first calf and she edited it to read, "Update on Stories. IT'S TWINS!"

She had previously written, "Look what happened over breakfast. We welcomed furry little William Wallace to the @warramba family.


"This first photo is his mum, Shirley Manson just before giving birth. The video shows the moments just after delivering and his first steps."

She added, "And yes, we name our Highland Coos after famous Scots."

In the video, Edwina and Neil chat to someone on the property who confirmed the calf is a boy.

Then, on her Instagram stories, she shared a photo of two calves with Shirley.

"Hang on a second... TWINS," she wrote.

"They are the most beautiful cattle," Tracy Grimshaw commented.

"Soooo gorgeous," Rachel Griffiths added.

Edwina and Neil purchased Warramba in 2016 and after redoing the property they married there in 2018.

The pair, who share daughter Molly, one, will be welcoming their newest addition in February.

"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," Edwina announced on Sunrise earlier this month.

"Due in February, and I tried to tell Molly and she was not terribly interested. I showed her the photo when she scrunched up and threw on the floor," she joked.

Edwina added that she and Neil know the sex of the baby but won't be sharing until they've welcomed the little one, "Yes, we know what it is. I will keep that one a secret for now."
