Dermot O’Leary ‘happy’ to be out of the house as he joins This Morning

With This Morning’s Holly and Phil away enjoying some time off, Dermot O’Leary is one of many hosts who will be helping to fill in over the coming weeks. He’ll be joining Rochelle Humes, Alison Hammond, Ore Oduba and of course, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

The Irish presenter shared on the show today that he was “happy” to be out of the house, after spending so much time at home due to lockdown and becoming a Dad for the first time!

It seems the newborn isn’t sleeping so well at the moment, his co-host Rochelle revealed, so he was enjoying some time out of the house.

Dermot and his wife Dee Koppang announced the happy news of the birth of their first child last month. The radio DJ has since revealed the name of their new bundle of joy while live on his BBC2 Show.

The 47 year old shared on the show that they have named their little boy Kasper. Dermot also dedicated a song to his little boy whilst on the show.

He said on air; “My lovely son came into the world ten days ago. So forgive this moment of brief self-indulge while we play the song that accompanied that.”

“This is for you Kasper with a K – my wife is very insistent on that. Kasper Koppang O’Leary welcome to the world!”

The couple announced their happy news on Instagram last month; “Welcome to the world baby Koppang O’Leary… We’re delighted to announce that we’ve had a baby!”

“A little boy born on Tuesday 23rd June 2020 (Sankthansaften / Midsummer for you Norwegians) at 8.19am, weighing in at 6lb 13oz. Enjoying the cuddles in the newborn bubble… cats yet to be 100% convinced. Lots of love, Dermot & Dee x”

Dee previously opened up about their journey to parenthood, revealing it hasn’t been easy.

Taking to social media, the expectant mum said, “It’s been a rocky road to get here, so I wanted to send lots of love to any of you who are on that journey. Hang on in there. Sending love.”

Dermot and Dee tied the knot during a romantic ceremony at St Mary’s Church in Kent on September 14th, 2012.

The beautiful bride wore a cream satin gown with intricate lace detail, while Dermot looked dapper as ever in a navy three-piece suit.

The couple were dating for 10 years before they said ‘I do’.
