Today host Karl Stefanovic teases Allison Langdon is ‘pregnant’ live on air: ‘It’s baby number three!’
They’re known for their on-screen banter on the Today show.
But Karl Stefanovic may have taken things a little too far on Wednesday when he joked that his co-host Allison Langdon was expecting ‘baby number three’.
Allison, 42, had been reading an intro on the teleprompter about life being ‘pretty hectic’ for new mothers when ‘baby number two arrives’.

Without warning, Karl interrupted: ‘Ally’s expecting… a boy!’
‘It’s number three!’ she giggled, placing a hand on her stomach.
‘Yay! No one knew. Round of applause for Ally!’ Karl laughed, to which Allison responded: ‘It’s a big moment, right?’
‘Another immaculate conception!’ he chuckled.
Joker: ‘Yay! No one knew. Ahh. Round of applause for Ally!’ Karl laughed, to which Ally continued: ‘It’s a big moment, right?’
The duo then continued with their news report on family well-being.
Allison shares son Mack, five, and daughter Scout, two, with her husband Michael Willesee Jr.
Michael used to be a journalist and TV producer but is now an executive at Westpac.
Allison recalled how she first met her now husband during a candid interview with Show+Tell last year, saying she was struck by an ‘overwhelming physical attraction’ to him after meeting at a bar in 2006.
She said that after her pals had asked how the two met, she told them: ‘We were at a bar and I said this guy walked in, he had this red T-shirt and dark jeans.

‘You know when you just had that moment where you have just like an overwhelming physical attraction to someone… I just got hit by this.’
However, she later added that Mike denied he’d ever owned a red T-shirt in his life.
‘I finished telling the story and Mike came up to me, and he goes, ‘I’ve never owned a red T-shirt!’ she laughed.
Host Kate ‘Monty’ Dimond asked if she had recalled a different guy from that evening, and Allison replied: ‘I keep telling him that my soulmate is still out there!’
But the presenter was adamant the man in the red shirt was her husband, saying: ‘It was him, it was absolutely him, but he said he was wearing a navy shirt that night.’
The pair tied the knot in a stunning ceremony in Noosa in 2008.
