Good Morning Britain weather presenter Laura Tobin has revealed she has finally been able to take her baby daughter home after prematurely giving birth in September. The new mother, who is on maternity leave, spoke live on GMB on Monday morning, giving Susanna Reid and stand-in anchor Richard Madeley an update on her baby's progress - and revealed that she named her Charlotte. "She is getting on so well," she said. "We are finally home as a family - she was in hospital for quite a while, and she gave me quite a fright when she arrived very early. We just didn't know what to expect."

In May, Laura announced her pregnancy live on air. During the day's weather forecast, she told viewers: "I literally can't believe it's May so I thought I'd do a little forecast looking ahead at what is coming up. Now as we head through the summer months it's looking likely to be drier and warmer than average, and as we head into September things will be blooming." She then teased: "But it won't just be my dress, because I'm very pleased to let everyone know that come the end of October, I'll be having my own little ray of sunshine. I'm having a baby. And I would like to say that nobody knows – none of my family, my aunties, uncles, cousins… no one in the Met office. My parents, my husband's parents and our editor Neil [knew]."
