Congratulations are in order for BBC Breakfast host and frequent Have I Got News for You star Steph McGovern and her partner, as the presenter has confirmed she has welcomed a daughter into the world.

Steph revealed the good news on Friday (November 8), when she tweeted: "Well hello world, just surfaced to let you know that we now have a daughter! Born on Monday morning just as @BBCBreakfast was wrapping up.

"We're all fine and dandy. Just getting used to the eau de sick/poo I am now regularly wearing. #babylife."

The star revealed her pregnancy back in July, quipping: "I see my news is out! Yep, I am no longer with pot belly......I am now with child. #babyonboard."

Meanwhile, in October Channel 4 announced that Steph was set to present a daily live show for the broadcaster, titled The Steph Show, from their new headquarters in Leeds.

At the time, she said: "I'm really chuffed to be creating my own live show with Channel 4 in Leeds. It's going to be nerve-wracking, but there's nothing I love more than finding out what makes people tick, whether it's a famous face or someone we haven't met yet who has a cracking story to tell.

"This is a dream come true for me and I can't wait to get started next year. Just a small matter of having a baby first!"

In short, 2019 has been a great year for Steph McGovern.
