BABY JOY! BBC News presenter Kate Silverton pregnant with 1st child
Kate Silverton is pregnant with her first baby.
The BBC News presenter and her husband Mike Heron describe the news as a 'minor miracle' after they were told last year they couldn't conceive.
'Now a little announcement I have to make - for those of you who have asked about the puppy there is sad news... We cannot get it....:-(,' Kate, 40, wrote on Twitter yesterday.
'Because we had some very unexpected - but lovely news just recently.....
'I am pregnant ;-).
'Ooh that felt odd to announce! We gave up hope of having a biological family last year so this feels something of a minor miracle...'
Kate and security expert Mike got engaged in 2009 and married in central London last December.
'Hello all - we've had such a super day today and thank you again for your lovely messages,' Kate wrote last night on the social networking site.
'Feel wonderfully overwhelmed and just a teeny bit scared having it all out in the open - but know that happens to very early parent!
'I'll keep you posted and I love hearing your inspirational stories too - thnk you. Am off to bed shortly as up for the One o'clock news tomorrow...'
