The couple are celebrating

Konnie Huq and husband Charlie Brooker are new parents to a little boy named Covey.

The former Blue Peter and Xtra Factor host gave birth to the couple’s 6lb 2oz son in a London hospital on Friday night.

‘A real cutie. We are chuffed to bits, he is absolutely gorgeous!!’ says Konnie, 36, in a statement.

Konnie and screenwriter Charlie married in Las Vegas in August 2010 and announced in December last year that she was 5 months pregnant.

‘A quick thanks to everyone who congratulated us on the birth of our son. And a profound salute to the NHS and all who sail in her,’ Tweets Charlie, 41.
