TV presenter Kate Quilton gives birth to her first child and reveals gender

Kate Quilton has given birth to her first child with husband James Lance and has revealed the gender with an adorable picture on Instagram.

BAFTA-winning TV presenter Kate Quilton is perhaps best known as the host of Food Unwrapped which she presents alongside fellow parent, Jimmy Doherty.

She announced she was pregnant with her first child back in January and has been documenting her bump on social media throughout.

Taking to Instagram to announce the birth of her first child, Kate revealed that she has welcomed a little boy to the world.

Posting a picture of her son squeezing onto her little finger, Kate captioned the post: ‘Welcome to planet Earth, our magical little fella ✨❤ #babyboy’.

Before confirming her new arrival Kate posted a final picture of her bump with the caption: ‘So… I’ve had a few weeks off these little squares. And we’ve been BUSY… #pregnancy #baby #newmum’.

Over the last few weeks she has been on the search for women to discuss their breastfeeding experiences for a Channel 4 documentary. This is clearly Kate’s next big project and will likely be the focus of her return to work.

She is yet to confirm exactly when her son was born and has not yet revealed his name. Spanish baby names are becoming more popular this year and some people have started calling their children after IKEA furniture.

Perhaps Kate will opt for something foodie given she is fascinated by all things food and diet…

After finally confirming her little one’s arrival people have been quick to congratulate the new mum. One person said: ‘Congratulations!!!! X😘I’ve been watching to see what you had, lovely news! X’.

Another wrote: ‘Congratulations xx welcome to the world little man ❤’.

A third added: ‘Congratulations! The start of the greatest journey, best wishes x’.

Kate and her actor husband James Lance, who has starred in Teachers and I’m Alan Partridge, met at Edinburgh Festival and she says it was love at first sight.

Speaking to the Daily Record about that moment Kate said: ‘We met at the Edinburgh Festival eight years ago. He was in a play and I was there for the TV Festival. I walked into Brooks Bar and that was it. I was very lucky I saw him and I kind of knew in an instant I was probably going to have his babies.’

She added: ‘It was one of those magical moments where you think, “Gosh” and your life changes in an instant.’
