Celebaby: Kate Silverton Expecting Baby Number Two
BBC newsreader Kate Silverton is expecting her second baby.
The mum of one took to Twitter to share her happy news.
"Very happy morning all - a little bit of 'news' - Mike & I very happy to share that Clemency is set to become a big sister this summer."
"@PangolinLtd and I beyond thrilled - and once again totally surprised and blessed by Mother Nature"
She followed that up by later tweeting a picture of her scan, adding:
"Wouldn't usually tweet a scan photo but this was too sweet - baby gave us the 'ok' him/herself…"
And later still Kate added that she doesn't know whether the baby is a boy or a girl, but has a hunch:
"We don't know the sex but I said to the doc 'My instinct is it's a boy' & baby put its thumb up ! We shall see ...! Xx"
The Daily Mail reports:
"When Clemency was born in November 2011, Miss Silverton - who lost an ovary during an operation to remove a cyst when she was 29 - had already been through four rounds of IVF treatment and had resigned herself to the fact she was unlikely to become a mother."
"But within months of stopping the treatment she conceived naturally and later described the pregnancy as a ‘miracle’."
