Former BBC Breakfast presenter Steph McGovern has given birth to her first child.
The journalist, 37, confirmed the news on Twitter on Friday afternoon.
She said: “Well hello world, just surfaced to let you know that we now have a daughter! Born on Monday morning just as @BBCBreakfast was wrapping up. We’re all fine and dandy. Just getting used to the eau de sick/poo I am now regularly wearing.”
McGovern previously revealed she was pregnant back in July.
Wow wow. This is the most amazing news. Huge love and congratulations and bet she’s just gorgeous. Hope all going well and you’re getting the odd bit of sleep. Baby joy.— Mike Bushell (@mikebreakfast)November 8, 2019

After announcing the birth of her daughter, she was congratulated by Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis, the football club she supports, Middlesbrough FC, and Strictly star and her former colleague, Mike Bushell.
It comes after McGovern announced she was stepping down from the role after eight years to take up a new position as a news presenter for Channel 4.
