Expecting a baby against the odds: Kate Silverton and proud hubby Mike Heron talk to HELLO! about their miracle baby

22 AUGUST 2011

As she gently rubs her prominent bump through her dress, Kate Silverton radiates the glow of a mother-to-be, a happiness she thought she’d never experience.

She’s seven months into her pregnancy, yet the 41-year-old, one of the BBC’s best-known presenters and newsreaders and an established part of the Breakfast team, still can’t quite believe her luck.

This baby is the closest it gets to a miracle for me,” she tells HELLO! in an exclusive interview at the beautiful new home she shares with her 43-year-old husband, security expert Michael Heron, in southwest London.

Because of Kate’s medical history – she lost an ovary during a life-saving operation when she was 29 – she had been told her chances of getting pregnant were virtually zero.

Even so, over two years she and Mike tried everything they could to conceive – IVF, acupuncture, reflexology – but each attempt failed.
