In recent weeks, Victoria hinted at her upcoming maternity leave as she cryptically tweeted about taking a 'little sabbatical' away from her work as a TV host.
She told how she had pre-recorded some TV shows, including her hosting gig on Only Connect, as she shared her last TV column in The Telegraph before her break.
Victoria wrote: 'My TV column today is the last in a while - I'm taking a little sabbatical, though I HAVE recorded some TV shows for people to shout at in my absence. For my last pre-break column I've written about Blankety Blank and my new friend Lozza.'
Victoria has made few public and red carpet appearances in recent months, and was last spotted out with her Peep Show star husband David at the V&A's 2023 summer party on June 21.
Victoria stunned in a bright pink dress as she concealed her pregnancy and held a chic clutch bag over her stomach in her last public sighting before giving birth.
She had also stepped out with David at the We Will Rock You Gala night at the London Coliseum on June 7, but has not been seen much in public in recent months.
Just weeks before giving birth, Victoria also appeared as a guest host on Have I Got News for You but strategically managed to conceal her pregnancy on air.
In the episode, which was released on October 6, Victoria looked stylish in a pink floral print zip-up ensemble as she kept quiet about her pregnancy.

The show regular sat in the hosting seat for the 18th time as she returned to lead the show alongside joined guest panelists Carol Vorderman and Ignacio Lopez, and team captains Paul Merton and Ian Hislop.
Ahead of the pre-recorded show airing, Victoria also took to Instagram to share a smiling snap with Carol, but it was carefully cropped to just their faces.
