Michael weighed in at 6lb 3.5oz and Alex said: “He’s wonderful and they are both doing fine.

“He was due Tuesday but it is great to think he was the first to be born at RPH in 2017. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the new year - and our upcoming anniversary. Sally and I got together on January 29 last year.”
