TV journalist Kate Silverton has some brilliant news as she announces the birth of her second baby.

The little boy is a brother for two-year-old Clemency, her daughter by husband Mike Heron.

Clemency's little baby brother - Wilbur Silverton-Heron - was born 26 June 2014 at 02.53 and weighed 8lbs 3oz.

Kate called the delivery "a somewhat epic labour."

HELLO! has been told "he was 'back to back' and born facing the sky - causing mummy a few tricky moments - but another lovely natural birth. We are all doing very well indeed if a little 'battle weary'!"

The 43-year-old newsreader never dared dream she would be a mother of two after she lost an ovary, aged 29, during an operation to remove a cyst.

"To be blessed with baby number two seems beyond a miracle," she told  HELLO! in an exclusive interview ahead of the birth.

"It seems it's also beyond the doctors' understanding, too. It's simply amazing and we are so excited."

She added: "I have felt such utter joy in motherhood that I just wanted the chance to do it all over again. Despite my limited chances, I thought it was worth trying again. I just wanted to have one more try naturally and see what happened."

This time around she waited five months before sharing the news, joyfully tweeting a baby scan, in which her unborn child appeared to be giving a thumbs up.

Kate also spoke up about her experiences in order to give other couples struggling with the same issues some encouragement.
