Newsreader Kate Silverton pregnant with first child

Monday May 9, 2011

Newsreader Kate Silverton has announced that she is pregnant.

The 40-year-old BBC journalist and her husband Michael Heron are expecting a baby in October. She said she conceived their first child together naturally after several failed IVF attempts.

The television presenter - who is four months pregnant - said she is "extremely excited " with the news after trying to conceive for a number of years.

She said: "We are absolutely thrilled. We had given up all hope of having a family after years of trying so this seems like a minor miracle."

"Despite a number of IVF attempts this pregnancy happened quite naturally and came as a wonderful surprise. We feel very blessed and are extremely excited."
