Breakfast's Hayley Holt has sadly lost her baby.

Announcing the news on Hayley's behalf, TVNZ took to Twitter with a message from the 39-year-old TV presenter.

"While Hayley was in isolation to stay safe from Covid-19 during her pregnancy, her baby passed away," the broadcaster wrote.

"As we're sure you can understand, this is difficult news to share and we're asking you to assist us in respecting Hayley's privacy both while she's at home and when she returns to Breakfast."

"You've been part of this journey and we know you'll join all of us in the Breakfast family and the wider TVNZ team, in sending Hayley all your love and support.

"This is something which affects so many New Zealanders. If you need to talk about it, we can't recommend the teams at SANDS NZ or Baby Loss NZ highly enough."

Holt revealed in January that she was pregnant with her first child and was due to give birth to her son in July.
