Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid announce baby joy
PIERS MORGAN and his ‘work wife’ Susanna Reid were happy to announce a new addition on Good Morning Britain today.
The popular presenters revealed that weather presenter Laura Tobin has been absent over the summer for a very good reason — she had the baby she was expecting very early.
Laura, 35, was due to give birth in October, but her baby arrived ‘over the summer’, according to a tweet from the new mum herself this morning.
Announcing the news, Piers said the show’s ‘weather goddess’ had given birth to a little girl — named Charlotte — and hinted that it had been ‘a tricky few months for them’.
Her voice welling up with emotion, Susanna then shared: ‘Little Charlotte came a bit earlier than planned and she is being very well looked after in hospital.
‘Laura and her husband, Dean, they’re with her every day and Charlotte’s growing in size and strength.’
She added: ‘Laura described her baby as beautiful and of course she is, and she has dark hair, just like her mummy.’
Talking baby names, Piers couldn’t resist expressing his relief that little Charlotte had not been given a gender-neutral name — and Susanna piped up: ‘Thank goodness she didn’t call the baby Piers — that would’ve been really odd.’
