BBC Breakfast presenter Emma Vardy is marking one month since welcoming her baby son Jago to the world. 

Taking to Instagram Stories on Wednesday, the journalist - who is BBC's Ireland Correspondent - shared a candid selfie with her little boy, and gushed: "One month of the most amazing cuddles [blue heart emoji]."

Over the summer, Emma stepped in for Nina Warhurst who is currently away on maternity leave. However, shortly after welcoming her child, the reporter confirmed she would be leaving her position in Ireland to become the BBC's LA Correspondent. 

"We've certainly had our hands (& hearts) full lately, now there's a big adventure ahead for my wee family," she wrote earlier this month. "After an incredible 5 years in Northern Ireland, Jago Fionn @mr_plusone & I are off to actual Hollywood!"

Confirming her new role with the BBC, Emma added: "Not for my acting skills but to become the BBC’s LA Correspondent… reporting on everything from the red carpet awards to the presidential election & catching a few waves. "I've absolutely loved my time in Northern Ireland & it will always have a very special place in my heart. Will treasure our final weeks before we say goodbye NI [heart emoji]."

"Baby Jago starting his travelling career early!! 3 weeks old and already the three of us on our first flight together for a quick trip to see friends and family in England. The start of many…," she wrote in the caption. 

Her followers were quick to react, with one writing: "You're a machine. I'm not sure we’d even made it onto a bus after three weeks." Another said: "Looking fab 3 weeks after having your baby! Huge feat going on a plane with a baby! Have lots of fun on your travels x." 

A third post read: "WOW! I can't say if I am more impressed by the baby or by his parents! Either way, congratulations!!"
