Dermot O’Leary and his wife Dee Koppang have announced the birth of their first child.

The couple welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday, June 23.

Announcing the exciting news on Instagram, Dermot shared a photo of their son’s personalised baby grow.

He wrote: “Welcome to the world baby Koppang O’Leary… We’re delighted to announce that we’ve had a baby!”

“A little boy born on Tuesday 23rd June 2020 (Sankthansaften / Midsummer for you Norwegians) at 8.19am, weighing in at 6lb 13oz,” Dermot continued.

“Enjoying the cuddles in the newborn bubble… cats yet to be 100% convinced. Lots of love, Dermot & Dee x.”

The new parents are yet to reveal their son’s name, but for the moment they’re calling him after his double-barrelled surname, Koppang O’Leary.

Dermot and Dee announced they were expecting their first child in an Instagram post back in February.
