Good Morning Britain's Laura Tobin has given birth to a baby girl.
The 35-year-old weather girl and her husband Dean Brown welcomed their first child into the world over the summer but the pair have kept the news quiet until now as the tiny tot - named Charlotte - was born prematurely and is still being cared for in hospital.
Speaking on the early morning show today (06.09.17), host Susanna Reid said: "You may have noticed that Laura hasn't been here over the summer. We are pleased to say she has given birth to a little baby girl... She has called her Charlotte...
"Little Charlotte came a little earlier than planned and she is being looked after in hospital. Laura and Dean with her every day and she is growing every day..."
Susanna's co-host Piers Morgan added: "All our best to Laura and Dean and little baby Charlotte. It's been a tricky few months but good luck to all of you."
The brunette beauty later took to her Twitter account to confirm the news herself.
She said: "I'm proud to announce i'm a mummy-My beautiful baby arrived over the summer (much earlier than planned) a gorgeous girl called Charlotte. (sic)"
Laura announced she was expecting a baby in May and hinted at the time that the little one was due towards the end of September with a cryptic reference to the weather.
She said: "I literally can' believe it's May so I thought I'd do a little forecast looking ahead at what is coming up.
"Now as we head through the summer months it's looking likely to be drier and warmer than average and as we head into September things will be blooming.
"But it won't just be my dress because I'm very pleased to let everyone know that come the end of October, I'll be having my own little ray of sunshine. I'm having a baby!"
Laura and Dean have been married for seven years.
