Presenter Nick Knowles is celebrating the arrival of a new baby son. The 51-year-old DIY SOS and Break The Safe host welcomed son Eddie, his first child with his wife of almost two years, 26-year-old Jessica Rose, on Saturday afternoon.
"Little Eddie weighed in at a healthy 7lbs 9oz and both Mum and baby are doing well", HELLO! has been told.
Nick and Jessica, who married in a romantic ceremony in Rome in September 2012, announced the happy news of their pregnancy in HELLO! in February.
Nick - who has three elder children, sons Charles, 20 and TJ, 18, and daughter Tuesday, 19 - said at the time that becoming a father again later in life didn’t concern him.
"Earlier it did hit me, 'When he's 16, I'll be 67. Blimey!' But I'm a bit of a Peter Pan in spirit and physically I keep myself pretty fit," he told HELLO!, revealing that he couldn't wait to begin this "exciting new chapter" in his and Jessica's lives.
