Big Brother host Sonia Kruger has declared she's having a girl and the bub is due to arrive in February.

Kruger announced her pregnancy on Twitter on the weekend, but she let slip during an interview on the Nine Network's A Current Affair that she also knew the gender of her first child.

"I'm having a little girl," Kruger said on Monday night.

The 48-year-old spoke of her heartache of having miscarried in the past.

Kruger and her partner TV executive Craig McPherson have previously revealed their efforts to conceive both naturally and through IVF.

She used a donor egg from a close friend, whom she did not name, to become pregnant with her first child.

She said suggestions she may have delayed having children until now because she put her media career first were incorrect.

"It was more about the right place and the time and being in the right relationship and that happened," Kruger said.

The Nine Network personality announced her big news on Twitter over the weekend with a cute pic of her own feet in sexy Valentino shoes alongside a pair of baby socks.

"Hey everyone. Here's a fun fact ... I'm having a baby!" she posted.

And speaking on Nine's Mornings show, which she co-hosts, she explained how a close friend had donated the successful egg.

"I wanted to be really clear today on the show with our viewers and let everybody know that I did go through IVF and I did have an egg donor," said Kruger, who turns 49 on Thursday.

"When you get to my age, to use your own eggs to have a baby, you're not really going to be successful - I mean the odds are sort of one in a million, and my doctors have been very clear with me because I've been through IVF before.

"So I have a very good friend who basically gave me an egg and that's how this pregnancy came about."
