Charlie Brooker and Konnie Huq welcome second baby

Comedian Charlie Brooker and his wife Konnie Huq welcomed their second child on Friday 28 February.

A spokesperson for the couple confirmed that former Blue Peter presenter Konnie, 38, gave birth to a little boy at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital at around 10:30am

The newborn, who weighs 7lbs 6ozs, has "cute spiky brown hair like his dad has - but less grey" according to his proud mother. A representative for the couple added that their new arrival looks exactly like their first child Covey when he was born.

Charlie and Konnie first met in 2008 when The Xtra Factor presenter starred in an episode of Charlie's BBC1 comedy series, Screenwipe.

Their union initially seemed unusual, given Charlie's penchant for satirical and sometimes controversial comedy and Konnie's more wholesome, clean-cut image, but Konnie confirmed in an interview with the Guardian that her husband was 'the greatest love of her life'.

Following a nine-months romance, Cambridge graduate Konnie married Charlie, now 42, on 26 July 2010 at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.

The duo welcomed their first son, whose full name is Covey Brooker Huq, on 23 March 2012.
