Tess Daly and husband 'thrilled' over birth of second baby

Monday June 1, 2009

Strictly Come Dancing hostess Tess Daly and her husband Vernon Kay have welcomed their second child, a daughter they've named Amber Isabella. The 7lb 15 oz arrival is a sister for four-year-old Phoebe.  

"After a mercifully short labour Amber Kay was born at 5.26am on Saturday morning," said Tess. "She looks just like her big sister with long legs and lots of hair. We are thrilled to bits."  

The couple were able to take their baby home on Sunday. During the pregnancy presenter Vernon praised his wife as "the best-looking pregnant woman in the world".

He also talked of her hopes for a natural birth after having a caesarean section with Phoebe.  

Tess, who plans on taking the summer off to focus on the little one, hopes to be back fronting the dance contest in September
