Just weeks after bidding farewell to her colleagues at BBC Breakfast, Steph McGovern has revealed she has started the next chapter in her career! Taking to her Twitter page, the journalist - who welcomed a baby girl with her girlfriend in November - shared a snap of herself on her first day of work. "Made it out of the house for my first day of serious work (without baby sick on me)," she tweeted. "I felt like high fiving people as I walked down the street (I say walked, I mean stumbled... not quite got used to being in heels again!) #parentachievements."

"Well hello world, just surfaced to let you know that we now have a daughter," she announced on Twitter. "Born on Monday morning just as @BBCBreakfast was wrapping up. We're all fine and dandy. Just getting used to the Eau de sick/poo I am now regularly wearing. #babylife." The little girl is the first child for Steph and her partner, however they have yet to release her name or a photo.
