Harry Judd praises ‘hero’ wife Izzy following the birth of their second child

McFly drummer Harry Judd and wife Izzy have welcomed their second child together.

Doting dad Harry shared the happy news with his 844k fans on Twitter, writing: ‘We have a son! Kit Harry Francis Judd arrived this morning at 6.37. Both he & his Mummy are doing very well! @mrs_izzyjudd is my hero.’

Harry and Izzy are already parents to daughter Lola, who arrived in January 2016.

The 31-year-old’s bandmate Tom Fletcher was one of the first to congratulate his friend, retweeting the announcement and writing: ‘THE BEST NEWS! I cried happy cries into my breakfast ceral this morning over this.’

Tom, who is dad to sons Buzz and Buddy with his wife Giovanna, added: ‘And the coolest name award goes to…Kit Judd!’

Fans were also quick to send their wellwishes to Harry and Izzy, with one exclaiming: ‘Congratulations. Another McFly baby, this is going to be one big band!’

Shortly after he confirmed Kit’s birth, Harry went on to share a gorgeous first snap of his little boy with his 580k followers on Instagram, which quickly received over 96k likes and 1400 comments.

One fan commented: ‘Just a beautiful moment captured in time x’, another praised the baby name the couple had chosen: ‘congrats! What a lovely boy and brilliant name #kit all the love ❤❤❤’

Another said: ‘Oh absolute perfection. Massive congratulations to you all and welcome to the world Kit. Xxx’

The happy couple announced their pregnancy news back in April in a seriously sweet series of photos, but Kit’s conception is particularly poignant for the pair, as they have been very open with their IVF battle when trying to conceive their eldest, Lola.

Opening up about their previous fertility struggles, Izzy wrote of her ‘miracle’ pregnancy: ‘Harry, Lola and I are so happy to share our news.

‘After having IVF to conceive Lola people used to say to me you’ll probably fall pregnant naturally next time. I wondered how it would ever be that simple after all the difficulties we have previously faced.’

She went on to admit that she never believed they would be lucky enough, but it did and now she wants to give others hope that ‘amazing things can happen.’
