Congratulations are in order for a certain television presenter and her husband Mark Herbert today!

Charlotte Hawkins, presenter of popular show Good Morning Britain, has given birth to a baby girl today two weeks after going on maternity leave.

The couple who struggled to conceive were overjoyed to learn they were expecting, with Mark admitting: "It was a very strange moment. I don't mind admitting I shed a tear- it took a long time for it to happen and it was a huge relief."

The couple who announced that they were to become parents last August had considered turning to IVF in a bid to start a family, with Charlotte saying: "We'd got to the stage where we started to think 'Is this ever going to happen for us?'"

By the sounds of things, Charlotte's colleagues were as happy as the couple themselves with Charlotte revealing: "I remember the next day I went in and Susanna [Reid] had already gotten me a baby book as a present and Ben [Shephard] couldn't stop hugging me."

Mum and baby are said to be doing well and we couldn't be happier for the new family!
