Isobel's grandfather and brother are both named Byron and she wanted to keep it in the family - though she recognises the irony in what his intials spell!

Isobel and her husband Chris are thrilled by their first baby.

Isobel said: "Benjamin is absolutely gorgeous. He's changed our lives so dramatically and we're really very happy.


"I can't wait for his first smile and to see how he changes over the next few months. I know I'm a weather girl, but he really is our ray of sunshine."

She added: "The midwives at Queen Charlotte's were brilliant and really helped me through the labour. And it all feels worth it now."
